This past weekend over 100 students from several churches in our area united to share the love of Christ with our community. They lived the Gospel together, cross-denominationally, answering God's call for His body, the Church, to usher in His Kingdom outside the walls of individual churches. Here is the local CBS News report of one of their projects:

(We got this idea from the Cincy Vineyard.)

This SOS (Summer of Service) Student Weekend was the first of its kind in our area and a youth extension of our main SOS community outreach project which has been going on for three years now. Last year about six churches joined forces to serve our neighborhoods with water giveaways, car washes, block parties, and other events that open spiritual doors. This year we are excited to see the number of church/organization/township partners printed on the back of our SOS t-shirts double. Our relationships with mayors, school administrators, and News affiliates are opening doors that would never be possible apart from the move of the Spirit, especially the unifying of our churches with a common purpose. Away with church competition, elitism, and theological bickering. Together we're taking the community by force.

May the Spirit continue uniting our churches in love and purpose. May God create a genuine desire in our hearts for the glory of Christ which drives us to good works. And may we not settle with the satisfaction of doing good things, but may God grant us wisdom to lead all people to faith in Jesus Christ, a knowledge and loving relationship with their King.
