Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.Philippians 2:4
We go to the doctor for annual check ups. We visit the dentist twice a year for a check up. We even take our pets (if you have pets) for check ups to make sure they are healthy.
Has anyone checked up on you spiritually lately? Have you checked up on a brother or sister recently? Maybe you asked if they needed anything from the store or if you could pray with them.
For the first two weeks in August we are going to implement a trial program called “Check Up Calls” in which volunteers will be given the names and phone numbers of two different Hilldale families/individuals to call during the week to check up on them. Volunteers will call their families/individuals during the week to check on their physical and spiritual health, have a conversation with them, read an encouraging scripture to them, and/or pray with them over the phone. Then the next week each participant will be given two different families/individuals to check on.
Participants will make two phone calls each week for two weeks. Volunteers will be given two names for the week of August 1st – 8th and another two names for August 9th – 16th. Over the course of two weeks each volunteer will have checked on four different individuals/families. The names for who you will be contacting will be sent out by August 1st.
We hope that you will consider being part of this uplifting and encouraging experience. Not only will you brighten someone’s day, but you will also get to know a brother or sister better through chatting with them over the phone. If you have any questions please let Travis know by calling the office or e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
