The Christian Service Experience
When coming to college, I was really nervous that I would be lost, not know where to go, and have a hard time getting to know people. As soon as I learned my way around campus, though, I started getting comfortable with all the different areas here and with the student body.
But there was still something missing. I started to think, in what way could I get involved in some sort of ministry? At home, I always tried to jump into anything I could help with; why should it be different here? Then I learned about PCC's Christian service opportunities!
Christian service is a great way to go out into the local community and serve with different students from our college. This is one way I have had the opportunity to meet new people on campus and at the same time be involved in a ministry. In Luke 10:2, the Lord explains that there is a great harvest but few laborers. Going on Christian service has helped me be one of the laborers for Christ here at PCC.
I have had the opportunity to work with many Christian service ministries. There have been Bible clubs which go out into the local parks, and we play games with kids and teach Bible lessons. I also got to know the people in the area through the Seville Square Christian service, a ministry in which we witness and spread the gospel throughout Pensacola. One of my all-time favorites has been Miracle League! This Christian service truly melts my heart: we have the blessing of being a buddy to mentally or physically handicapped children and adults and playing baseball with them. These are just a few of the many Christian service ministries that go out all over the local area.
So what are you waiting for? Jump into a Christian service and let it be a blessing to your life. Get out there and join in!0
