Valley Forge Baptist is known as the Caring Church. Very often one of our guests will say that he received a warm and friendly welcome while visiting our church. But it’s more than just during a service. Our church family goes above and beyond in seeking to show the love of Jesus to our community as well. One of the ways we do that is by participating in a ministry called Chosen 300.
Chosen 300 is an organization that exists to assist those less fortunate by providing them with a warm meal twice a week. Each month, groups from our church have the opportunity to volunteer on the first and fifth Tuesdays. We have teams of people that purchase food, prepare meals, and conduct services at an offsite location in Pottstown. Every time we go we strive to be an encouragement by singing songs, sharing Christ’s love, eating a meal together, and enjoying a friendly conversation.
It is a joy to see our people getting involved in the lives of others and seeking to be a help and a blessing to our community in this manner. Oftentimes, our members will tell stories of how one of the guests was an inspiration to them even though they themselves were going through a rough time in their lives. All of us can use a helping hand every now and then, and it’s important that we all get involved in some way.
Christianity is not about religion, it’s about a relationship with Jesus Christ, and that relationship compels us to uplift those in need we see around us every day.
