Making a difference in Tuscaloosa

“Faith in action is love - love in action is service” - Mother Teresa

When we love others, we find purpose and meaning in life. The best way to love someone, is to serve them. Jesus was always reaching out and serving. We follow Him by spreading that same love to others today!  Can you image the difference we could make, if we were all willing to see the needs around us, feel compassion for our neighbor, and act in service? That’s the life that you and I were made for! 

Sometimes the only obstacle is knowing where to start. Where do we go, and what can we do? ServeTuscaloosa wants to help you, help others. Our team is out in the community every week meeting our neighbors, and the leaders and organizations that are helping them. They are helping the homeless, feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, and teaching our children - and they are doing a great job! All they need is a little help and support! ServeTuscaloosa knows that you want to be involved, so we work with these organizations to determine what they need. Then, we bring those opportunities to you each month - register for this month's event HERE!
