SOS Projects, “Serving Others Selflessly,” are monthly, local mission opportunities for the youth at First United Methodist Church of Spring Hill to make a very visible impact on the lives of people in the Spring Hill community.
“We must be responsible and aware of the needs of others and then put our faith into practice by serving others selflessly,” said Robert Weatherall, director of youth ministry at First Spring Hill.
During the SOS Project each month, the youth travel to a local outreach ministry or organization and perform a variety of tasks that may be needed. “It is a fun way for the teens to spend time together, and an awesome opportunity for us to share the love of Christ,” Weatherall added.
Recently, for Valentine's Day, an SOS Project called “Serving Our Shut-ins” met in the church kitchen and prepared meals for folks in the church who cannot get out of their homes much because of a disability or inability of some kind. The meals, complete with a dessert, were then delivered by the youth (with the assistance of adult drivers).
All teenagers are encouraged to take advantage of their SOS opportunities to make a difference in the life of another – making God's love real!
