When you encounter someone from our North Country Ministries team, you may be given a goody bag, some handwarmers or a cowbell. Why do we give these things away? Simply put, we are servants of Jesus Christ, and one of the ways we serve Him is by serving others. These simple acts of kindness help us to demonstrate the love of God.
Handwarmers - in the Bible, Jesus teaches us to serve others and meet their needs. On some sub-freezing days, a warm pair of handwarmers is just what people need.Cowbells - how do you cheer during winter sports events?? One way is to ring your cowbell! We love to give away cowbells to help encourage on the athletes as they compete in their favorite sport. And the cowbells are great souvenirs.
Our motivation to serve others goes deeper than just our concern for you to have good breath (peppermints), unchapped lips, warm hands and a cowbell for cheering. We want everyone to know the incredible love that God has shown to all of us in Jesus Christ. We have found a great online flash video that we recommend to you: http://www.thekristo.com/.
