Carterville Christian Church Hosts Annual Day of Service | KSNF / KODE
CARTERVILLE, Mo – Three local churches are teaming up to lend a hand to those in need.
It was all part of the Carterville Christian Church’s annual day of service.
“This is what we are called to do. We as a people, whether you believe in God or not, were all supposed to help each other, ”said Keith Golubski, outreach pastor at Carterville Christian Church.
Sixty volunteers from three local churches spent Saturday morning giving back to residents of Carterville.
“People have had a lot of trouble in recent years. Some people have lost family members. They don’t have anyone to help them carry out some of these projects. So instead of them being sued and fined, we now have the opportunity to help our neighbors. The best way to do it is to show the love of God, ”Golubski said.
Volunteers from Carterville Christian Church, Carterville First Baptist Church, and Community Fellowship Church worked on 8 projects across town.
The group spent the morning doing some yard work, repairing windows and pouring a new sidewalk for the Carterville Christian Church’s day of service.
“This lady, her son, passed away about six months ago. She has heart problems and needs help getting from her ramp to the sidewalk so that she can do her shopping. The ground was really rough and uneven, it’s only a risk of falling, ”Golubski said.
The owner is grateful for the help.
“It’s just wonderful. And wonderful, there are people in this world who still do it, who can do it. I’m so glad I did,” said Karen Brill, owner.
Volunteers say giving back to others is satisfying.
“We love our community and we want to reach out every now and then and volunteer and do what we can to help improve people’s lives and to lift their spirits and make them feel good about certain things around. their home, ”said Dan King, Community Fellowship Church Volunteer.
