GO Week

Each year in June, we take an entire week to GO into our neighborhoods to share the love of God. We want to help our neighbors to experience God’s work in their lives. With so many people attending The Branch every weekend, be careful not to feel like your contribution to the work of the church is meaningless. The truth is, it takes all of us joining together to impact our community. We need you to be willing and join with us on this mission!


GO Week 2014
June 13-20

Get ready to GO! We want everyone at The Branch to get involved with GO Week. Make room for an hour here or there, a whole day, or even several days that you can participate, we want you to join us!

Here's how you can get involved:


1. Pray

Pray about the week, and offer it to the Lord in service. Ask Him where He wants you to serve and when.

Psalm 25:12 - Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.

Psalm 31:3 - Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.

2. Create a Profile

If you haven't already done so, create your profile here. If your profile is already set up, continue to Step 3.

When you set up your profile, sign up for as much availability as you have, realizing that our goal is for everyone who feels called to work will have at least one job for the week. We will try our hardest to fill up the times you have given, but often the needs don't match up with the availability. So it may be, for example, that you are available every evening, but we may only have a couple of evenings with assignments. The best way to get the jobs you want is to go to the web page and choose a job (see step 3). Thanks for your flexibility!


3. Sign Up for Specific Projects

Choose from a list of specific projects (jobs, times, and locations) here. We try to have a variety of ways to serve for everyone of every age to participate. Please know that each spot of availability is important and you will be counted on to serve at that specific time. Choose as many hours as you can work on as many days as you are available.


4. Suggest a Service Opportunity

Success for this week not only depends on you signing up to work AND choosing jobs, but it also depends on you submitting jobs.

It's your neighbors we're trying to serve . . . your community. The needs come from your connections. The best job sites we've had have come from members submitting them. Let us know who needs help, and we'll try our best to serve them. Don't wait on "the church" to come up with stuff for you to do. You are the church! You can suggest work here.


5. Tell Others

Let others know what service opportunities you have selected so you can work side by side with your buddies while you are meeting new ones. Send them to this webpage!

6. Share Your Stories

Let us know what God did in your life as a result of serving Him.
You can do that by sending an email to go@thebranch.org, or by posting pictures and stories on your Facebook status with the hashtag: #goweek.


Thank you in advance for being Jesus in our community, and for serving people who could never pay you back!

I Peter 4:10-11 (NIRV) - God's gifts of grace come in many forms. Each of you has received a gift in order to serve others. You should use it faithfully. If you speak, you should do it like one speaking God's very words. If you serve, you should do it with the strength God provides. Then in all things God will be praised through Jesus Christ. Give him the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

If you have specific questions, you can email go@thebranch.org.
