This is what church is supposed to be.
Gateway Community Church in South Riding, Va. had "The Big Event" on Sunday, October 15. Instead of a typical Sunday morning worship service, the congregation went out and did volunteer work for 61 area homes. One member even blogged about the experience.
The event included business sponsors, a web site and balloons and yard signs to mark the "winners"--the homes that received the free work. While all those extras help maximize the impact of the event, I just love the simple idea.
