Four Rivers’ Dirty Feet

Finally, let’s not forget the examples of Dirty Feet People at Four Rivers. 

When my kids tell me what they learned in River Kids, I see dirty feet. 

When I talk to the security guards keeping my kids safe, I see dirty feet.

When I am given a handout before service, I see dirty feet. 

When the offering is given and received, I see dirty feet. 

When I hear the announcements, I see dirty feet. 

When I am led in worship, I see dirty feet. 

When I hear the sermon, I see dirty feet.

When I write a prayer request on a com card, I know someone with dirty feet will read it. 

When I hear the PA speakers and watch videos on the screen, I see dirty feet. 

When I receive an email from Covenant Connection, I see dirty feet. 

When the staff ministers to me from behind the scenes in ways I’ll never know, I can see the footprints left behind by someone with dirty feet. 

When I’m under the Four Rivers tent at BBQ on the River, I see dirty feet. 

When someone is visited in the hospital, I see dirty feet. 

When 150-200 Community Kitchen meals a day given to the hungry, I see dirty feet. 

When I see those who work with Ladies Living Free or Lifeline Ministries, I see dirty feet.

When the hearts of foster children are shown love for the first time by caring foster parents, I see dirty feet. 

When far away orphans who have been abandoned and neglected are adopted into loving Christian homes, I see dirty feet.

When I am with a River Group whose leaders have opened their lives to join with others in their walk with Christ, I see dirty feet.

When I see pastors and their families willing to sacrifice during difficult times for the benefit of the church, I see dirty feet. 

When I see the faces of those who have mentored me in ways they probably don’t even know, I see dirty feet. 

There are too many dirty feet at Four Rivers to list them all here in a single post. But we can always use more. What does it take to be one of the Dirty Feet People? Simply recognize a need and committing to meet it. Not out of the hope of recognition, but out of a love for God and for others. 

Let’s walk through some dirt together. 

Live The Mission,
