Many people have asked me and the other staff members what they can do to help. This is very encouraging! So, here are some ways that you can get involved to help and serve. Many of these things may seem simple, but the primary idea is that it frees me and other leaders up to focus on leadership, care, and other church-wide priorities.
This past Sunday, I found myself in a unique situation. Pastor Shane was slated to preach, a group of other folks from the church were leading the music, and my only in-service responsibility was to do the welcome prior to the sermon. I’m not entirely sure where the idea came from—maybe it was the Father’s Day mojo?—but I decided to volunteer in our children’s ministry for both services.
