What is 100 in 1?
A church is a group of people focussed on Jesus Christ. Something that Jesus did a lot of, was helping people. We at Wallsend Church discovered there was a need for people to receive some help with their yards and gardens in our local community. We developed the idea of reaching 100 homes in the space of 1 year, thus, 100 in 1.
Our goal is to connect with 100 homes over the next year, as we assist them in yard work around their home. If somebody needs their lawn mown, their shrubs pruned, hedges trimmed, weeds pulled, leaves blown or even driveway pressure cleaned, then we want to help.
Why would we do this? What motivates a group of young people to go and give their time, energy, money to a group of people that we've never met. We believe that it's important to pause our lives for a moment, and focus on somebody else. Even if it's just for a moment, we believe that truly investing effort into somebody else is part of how we spread the love and goodness of Jesus Christ in our world today.
So 100 in 1. It's a challenge. It's hard. It's messy. It's not easy. But it's worth it. You get to see the impact of service on peoples faces. Real people get a boost to their everyday lives because of what you can do for them. You have the power to bring love into somebody else's life, so the choice now is yours, do you want to?
