impact

At Voyage we are striving to live the authentic Christian life. This involves four things: knowing (getting to know God better through his word), being (a personal relationship with God and growing in moral purity), doing (serving God) and renewing (rest and relaxation). 


Regarding the third aspect, doing, we feel that it is very important to live out our faith, to take action for God. We deplore "couch potato Christianity"! So once a month we have a unique gathering we call "Impact Sunday". Here's how it works: on the last Sunday of every month we shift our focus from learning from the Bible, singing and other aspects of our usual Gatherings, to serving people in need and doing projects for the community! We meet at our regular time (10:30 AM) for a "mini-gathering" and then at 11:00 we leave in teams to serve others!

If you have a need or know of a need in your community, please let us know!

We have served the homeless, built houses with Habitat for Humanity, helped widows and women in shelters, helped families move, done house and yard projects and cleaned up neighborhoods. 

 

What does it mean to impact at Voyage?


We believe that when we discover the truths of the Bible and when we begin to thrive spiritually, God begins to fill us with his love so that it can overflow to others, especially those who are in great need. God's desires to do amazing things in us and through us as well! We desire to be a group that takes care of those inside and outside the Voyage community as an expression of God's love.

Community Impact is a strong value at Voyage and our goal is to expand our impact in the world beyond Impact Sundays. We see Impact Sundays as our "training wheels" for future greater involvement in the community and in the world and we are seeking other opportunities and leaders to take us to the next level.  

Key 'impact' verses from the Bible:


“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? My dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. This then is how we know that we belong to the truth.” 1 John 3:17-19

“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:15-17

“Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need...there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.” Acts 2:45; 4:34,35

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden, neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise you Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35

“Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.” 1 Peter 2:12

‘“In every way they will make the teaching about God our savior attractive.” Titus 2:10

“As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially those who belong to the family of God.” Galatians 6:10

“They are to serve brothers even better because those who benefit from their service are believers and dear to them.” 1 Timothy 6:2

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10
