LET US DO GOOD!
October! How is that possible? Where has the time gone? Summer over. School back in session. Fall upon us. Wow! What a whirlwind! At least that is what it has felt like when I sat down to write this article. What I enjoy most about this time of year is seeing our youngest disciples back in Sunday School and Confirmation. It is a pleasure to come here each weekend and see a bustling parish of children scurrying off to class learn- ing about Jesus Christ! And for that, I am truly thankful, especially those who serve as volunteer teachers, helpers, and leaders.
Each of us has been gifted by GOD and those who lead our Christian Education program have the gift of teaching and love of children. Their commitment and dedication to providing quality lessons and devotions are greatly appreciated. Their tireless dedication to our youth is such a blessing to all. Please remember to keep our teachers, helpers, leaders, and youth in prayer. Also, take some time to say THANK YOU on Sundays for those offering their time and talent in this vital ministry. Without them, our strong program would not be possible.
I would also invite YOU to prayerfully consider where GOD may be calling you to SERVE? Our ministry to this community and beyond is depended upon OUR willingness to be the ‘hands and feet’ of CHRIST in the world. Whether YOU have a few minutes, an hour, a day, week, whatever, what gift do YOU have to offer? What ministry are YOU willing to serve? What are YOU able to share?
‘As we have opportunity,’ the Apostle Paul shared, ‘let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.’
