4 Reasons to Volunteer

Episode 40

April 19, 2022

It’s National Volunteer Week, and we’re celebrating by highlighting one of our favorite ways to get our hearts closer to Jesus — volunteering! In this fun episode, Kori and Lee chat about four main reasons why we should slow down and take the time to serve others. We truly believe that Jesus came to serve, and we can’t be like Jesus unless we serve others.

Our hope is that you feel encouraged to find a need in your community and take action! If you’re interested in volunteering for Bible2School, learn more here.

Ready … Let’s go…
