Last Saturday several members of Knox Church went over to help with a special health fair at Sheridan Parkside in its community center.
Ellen Keller helped to organize the fair, which was designed to promote healthy lifestyle choices for the surrounding community.
People came in to grab lots of freebies, including Knox’s blessing bags, books, fresh veggies, snacks, and health brochures.
Each Knox participants helped in his or her own way, from taking blood pressure to making popcorn to “selling” free books!
Individuals and families came through, many delighted to be loved and serviced in such a fashion. The kids particularly liked the bounce house and fire truck outside.
It may seem like a small measure of help to do something like this, but Jesus can take our efforts and magnify them a thousandfold for his glory.
Remember that Jesus was often ministering to the physical needs of people first — and then to their spiritual needs afterward. We as Christians need to be mindful of all of the ways people need our assistance.
And we had a lot of fun doing this — it’s always a blast when the Knox family gets together for a service project!
To God be the glory!
