July is here and it’s time for our next Servolution programme, where we reach out into our community with the love of Jesus. We do this each year around the Mandela week and this year we will be going out to bless people on Saturday the 16th  of July. If you would like to be a part of the New Life Servolution initiative, you can choose one or more of these four different ways to participate:
Baby Box Project Donations
The Baby Box Project seeks to impart hope to the mothers in our country that lack a support system and face desperate poverty. Many mothers don’t have anything for their newborn babies and these boxes filled with hope, love and essential items are dropped of at hospitals in and around the Johannesburg area. There will be a collection box situated in the foyer for these baby items. Please feel free to bring one or more of the items that will be included in each box. The items can be made for a boy, a girl, or in neutral colours.

1x Baby Blanket
1x Babygrow (0-3 months)
1x Seasonal Outfit
2x Vests
Socks & Hat
1x Facecloth
1x Roll of Cotton Wool
1x Tub Vaseline
1x Baby Soap
1x Packet Thick Sanitary Pads
1x Packet Nappies
500ml Bottle of Water
1x personal note of encouragement to the new mom
(This should ideally be an anonymous note, but gives the box a personal feel)
Summerfield Retirement Village
Join us as we minister to and bless the elderly with tea and cake. Come with a heart to love the residents, no need to bring anything with you but the love of Jesus.
Due to the fact that we can only take a limited number of people on the Retirement Village outreach, this group is now unfortunately full and we can't accommodate any more volunteers. You are still most welcome to join the Neighbourhood Clean-up also happening on Saturday the 16th of July - see details below.
Neighbourhood Clean-up 
    Guys, bring your tools, weed eaters, saws, hedge cutters, secateurs and gloves to clear around Douglas Road to Galloway Road for the safety of pedestrians and to tidy up the area.
RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) 
     Choose a way you would like to randomly bless those around you. You can choose to do something with your friends or family, or on your own, as led by the Lord.

Here are some RAK ideas you could do:
Send flowers to a friend with a loving note
Pay for someone’s groceries in the supermarket
Offer to help at an animal shelter
Get some friends to help clean up your school
Send a note of appreciation to someone you know
Run an errand for someone you know
Visit an aged family member
Offer to do chores without being asked
Donate to a charity of your choice
Bake cookies for the office
Servolution T-Shirts will be available to purchase for R130 from the Welcome Centre in the foyer on Sundays.
You can also place your order at
Whatever you choose to do, New Life Servolution is a great opportunity for us as a church to impact our community and the people around us with the heart of Christ.

Acts 20:35 states that, “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: It is more blessed to give than to receive” and we know that there is joy in the act of giving.

Thank you so much Newlifers for your amazing generosity and we look forward to putting smiles on many faces as we impact our world for Christ.
