The CommUNITY Service Team was birthed out of the Great Commission to "go and make". Bill Moersch, the founder, was prompted to go into the community just like Jesus did. Bill has been a Men's Ministry leader in Lodi for over 20 years and CST was first an effort to connect guys to guys to serve together in Lodi as The Church. Because many others have experienced a similar prompting the movement has quickly gained momentum, transformed and grown to be an all inclusive pathway of those who have a heart to serve others and make a difference in the Lodi community.
God has a wonderful plan for our life and seeing the needs, meeting the needs and serving others is how the wonderful life is lived out. Our greatest success is found in the middle of God's will for our life and giving of our time and talent through generosity is not what we do, it's who we are. God placed us here in Lodi as a part of His plan for us and the Lodi community. We embrace the plan for us and engage in the community God has entrusted unto us. We see ourselves as servant, stakeholders in our local community. We do not replicate efforts of others but instead come up beside organizations that serve the community well and help them be more successful. It's all about :go and make" through UNITY of the commUNITY.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20
"Even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many." Mark 10:45
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35
Generosity is not what we do, it's who we are.
What does love require of me?
