Outreach in the local community is a very important part of any church. We are commanded to be the very hands and feet of Jesus.
Matthew 25:35-40 (ESV) For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, (36) I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ (37) Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? (38) And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? (39) And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ (40) And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Every Tuesday and Thursday St. Aidan’s volunteers feed between 100 and 120 students a hot breakfast at West Gate Elementary School. This is one of the practical ways in which we want to show the love of Jesus to others and bless our community. Check out the recent news spot by Jonathan Pinto of CBC News here.
Hebrews 6:19 (NIV) We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
By the grace of God it is our privilege and joy to meet people in the community at their point of need.
