Good Samaritans Serve
“In our society, it can be hard to notice someone in need. I don’t run across too many naked, beaten men lying along the road [like the Good Samaritan did]. How do we know someone is unable to clean her house because of illness? How do we know someone needs a ride to a doctor’s appointment? How do we know a single mom can’t afford to repair her car? How do we know someone struggles with loneliness?
That’s where Love In the Name of Christ comes in. Love INC’s job is to identify needs and make them known to the churches and church volunteers. Your job is to be the Good Samaritan, to respond to the person in need with love in the Name of Christ.
Our vision for Love INC is that church volunteers can meet every need we identify in our community so that everyone we help can experience the love of Jesus Christ in their lives. Please share your love with your neighbors. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
There are many ways to get involved serving neighbors in need through volunteering for your church through Love INC – We encourage new volunteers to attend a one-hour orientation class to learn about ways to be placed in service to others. Call (503) 655-4223 ext 2 to find out when the next orientation will be and to reserve a spot.
We use the Volunteer Survey to match resources within the church with needs in the community. You may download a hard-copy of the survey, or simply fill out our online form.
