There are moments in our lives when God is evident in everything we see and do. Other times, we catch glimpses of light that give us hope and strength to continue on. Yet sometimes, the maintenance of our lives in our own place obscures that light. Sometimes, we need to journey outside of the comfortable and into the foreign. Ever since the beginning of God’s covenant relationship with humanity, sojourning to seek and follow God has been a key part of our faith story.
This November 1-4, you have the opportunity to add your story to that list of sojourners who have ventured out into the world seeking to follow and find another glimpse of the divine. Join the Holy Covenant Missions Team in Homestead, Florida, as we volunteer with Sembrando Flores Compassionate Care Ministries. Sembrando Flores is a grassroots, ecumenical,faith-based, HIV/AIDS and social service organization whose ministry focuses on promoting wellness of the mind, body, and spirit by providing compassionate care and personal advocacy.
Our time with Sembrando Flores will be spent assisting its staff with one of its free community HIV/AIDS testing clinics, facilitating a night of fellowship with teens in the community, and assisting the organization with other tasks as needed to make the facility a place where the community can feel comfortable.
The deadline to register is Saturday, September 1. To register, or for more information about this or any of the exciting things happening with Missions at Holy Covenant, please email the Missions Team.
We hope that you will consider joining us, and we look forward to finding ways to help you encounter God in service to others.
