Wednesday Night Guys – Delivering and Making a Difference

For years they have been known primarily as, the Wednesday Night Guys. In reality, they are one of our most faithful furniture delivery teams. The names and faces on the team have changed some over the years. The original group of guys were from our partner church, Alpine Chapel. But now several churches are represented in their ranks.

The team started when a Love INC SW representative came to Alpine and challenged church members to volunteer. A group of guys who were part of a growth group together said, “Why don’t we give that a try? Let’s put our faith into action and help people.” And so they did.

Perhaps more significant even than all the people who have been served by this team, is the influence they have had on the ministry of Love INC SW.

It’s because of their desire to leave more than furniture behind after deliveries, that we give Bibles and other items in “love buckets”, to every family that gets furniture. Their team wanted to better understand how to help people and not enable them. So they engaged in a study of the book, When Helping Hurts, which led to Love INC distributing the book and training on it across our network of partner churches.

Now some of the Wednesday Night Guys are part of a new mentor training program at Love INC SW. And they helped inspire the creation of this group. The were one of our first serving teams to welcome a client to serve with them. Their desire to mentor him and others motivated us to create a group to equip them and others to do just that.
