MR says: Are you looking for ways to make a difference in your community? The Church has sponsored a website that allows you to search out service opportunities in your area.

While service is nothing new to our Church, there has now been a recent refocusing on community service, with new ways to connect those who want to serve with those who need help. In a recent Sunday School meeting, local Church leaders taught my ward (congregation) about a new website, sponsored by our Church called Just Serve.org. The site is a service from our Church, but is for everyone in every community.

After typing in your zip code, service is literally at your fingertips. The page fills with service opportunities in your area, and offers something for everyone.

Just in my zip code, there were 42 service opportunities! Some of these services included a school supply drive, shelving books at the library, walking with clinic patients, gardening for food going to the Houston Food Bank, or babysitting for women attending domestic violence therapy.
