Pastor's Words

The Pastor’s Keyboard

As we begin this New Year, I challenge you to look at the opportunities of service listed on the table just outside the auditorium. These are just some of the teams you could serve on. If you see one that fits you, then put your name on the paper and give it to the office or put it in the offering plate when it is passed. That is not a guarantee you will be placed on that team, but it gives those responsible to fill teams/committees knowledge that you are interested in this place of service. I have heard people say that they have never been asked to serve. Don’t wait to be asked, but take the first step in making yourself available. Every church member is to have a place of service. Paul challenges us to look at what we can give in service as church members (1 Corinthians 12:12-31). These opportunities of service are our ministry to serve one another in the body of Christ. We are not to confuse that with our mission to reach those who are not yet believers. A church that ministers to one another well will be inviting to those outside the church.

Let’s all find our place of service in the first quarter of 2018.

Pursuing Him,

Doug i
