It is important to remember that most situations need more than money to bring about a remedy. The actual presence of our congregation in assisting others demonstrates to those who are hurting that church members actually care about them; and therefore, Jesus loves them. It is important for Outreach Committees to not only collect the resources (money and supplies) for a need, but to encourage members of the congregation to use their talents and energy to work hand-in-hand with those who are hurting to bring about a transformation in their lives. In essence, the Outreach Committee builds a bridge between the talents of the congregation and the needs of those who are hurting. Where possible, it is more effective to teach others to help themselves than just to offer assistance. Working one-on-one with those in need puts the church on their level and presents the most effective witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
