Springville First United Methodist Church is a member of
Love InC of Greater Springville.
LOVE inC (Love, In the name of Christ) is a clearinghouse with the mission: “To Spread Christ’s Love by Helping Churches Help People” Coordinating efforts, being organized, meeting needs without duplicating services, and not allowing one church to become overburdened working alone is the best way to respond to human needs. God provides for His people by mobilizing His Church and by working with many helping agencies through the ministry of Love InC.
Some of the efforts coordinated through Love InC include:
Providing drivers to transport patients to medical appointments
Referrals to the food pantry
Cleaning supplies packages including dishtowels, household cleaning items, oven mitts, a mop and a bucket
Matching furniture donations and needs
Referrals to social services agencies
from Love INK, the Love InC newsletter Spring 2003:
“The LOVE In the Name of Christ ministry model is not about the stuff we can give people — it’s about developing relationships with people in legitimate need so they can begin planning for a different way of life. This new life will exhibit accountability and spiritual growth. LOVE InC is here to help teach the lay people of a church to become better equipped to intentionally and effectively minister to a family in need.”
