What will YOU do to put your faith into action?
James 2:14-17 says…
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

There are many opportunities...
local ministries reaching out to the Omaha community:
- Open Door Mission-( opendoormission.org) is a homeless shelter which supplies housing, meals, job skills training, furniture and clothes to those in need. There are various ways to serve at this location including sorting and organizing their donations, serving meals, babysitting, helping with worship services, or sharing job skills and computer training.
- Restoring Dignity-(howicanhelpnow.wordpress.com) is a grass roots organization reaching out cross culturally to help refugee families. Their mission is to better equip newly planted refugees to adjust to their new surroundings with proper furniture and supplies. They also instruct individuals on how to use these new items. Some ways you can help in this mission are moving furniture, cleaning, and light construction, decorating and organizing.
- Heartland Hope Mission-(heartlandhopemission.org)- is the largest food pantry in Nebraska which shares a Bible message and offers food and clothing to those in need. They are open four times a week for people to get supplies, so they need administrative and hospitality gifted people to assist them in their mission. Also, they plan to move their equipment and donations to a much larger location soon so they will need help in that endeavor.
