2017 Fall Service Day

October 28, 2017:

Thank you to all players, parents, and families of the FCA MD Boys Lacrosse Club who came out to Freedom, MD to participate in our annual Fall Service Day. Our theme this fall has been SOLID from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, in which He talks about the areas of our life that support a solid foundation as a follower of Christ. As a Club we strive for that same solid foundation through our four core values; IntegrityTeamwork, Excellence, and Service.  On Saturday morning we had the privilege to partake in service as a Club with First Fruits Farm. 

Although a chilly start to the morning, it was amazing to be able huddle together to open up in Prayer with Rick Bernstein (First Fruits Farms' Owner) and receive the Word of the Day from our Ministry CoordinatorsSaturday's word of the day was, "ROOTED." Coming from Jesus' teaching in the Sermon on the Mount on service. We read Matthew 6:1-4 with the focus on why we are serving and where our hearts are rooted when we serve. Too often we try to please ourselves in our times of service and giving. We do it for the sake of ourselves rather than God's. However, when we are ROOTED in Christ, our desires align with God's desires. 

What a site to see every team represented from the 2027s tthe 2019s plus their families coming out to serve! In the two and half hourswith many hands at work there was 75,000 pounds of potatoes harvested! 75,000 pounds of potatoes! Those potatoes have already been shipped and will be benefitting Baltimore food banks in our region, West Virgina food banks, and the hundreds of victims from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. For every 12,500 pounds of potatoes 120,000 meals are provided for those in need. So, from our collective work on Saturday, 720,000 meals will be provided all over the country. Thank you to Rick Berstein and the First Fruits Farm Staff for the ability to come out and support their cause "to advance the Kingdom of God on earth by: Growing and giving food to those in need, in Jesus’ name. Bringing together volunteers from diverse backgrounds to share a time of serving and blessing others. Providing a fellowship opportunity for people of all races, socio-economic classes, and religious affiliations in a natural setting that demonstrates God’s grace and the love of Christ. Offering a regular opportunity for Christian servant leadership." We as a Club had the privilege to come together and do just that. We are excited for next year for an even greater turn out!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog
has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored
myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques
to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover a person that
truly knows what they are discussing on the internet.
You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More people should look at this and understand
this side of the story. I can't believe you aren't more popular since you surely
possess the gift.
