Many people come through the doors each day – some happy… some grieving and sad, some homeless and hungry…some wanting to get married… some angry…some wanting to join the church…some with no teeth…some elderly and barely able to put one foot in front of the other…some wealthy…some prideful, etc. I always pray that I will bring glory to God in how I treat each one of them. I want each one to feel he/she is important and that God loves them. (I love the saying, “Be kind: Everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”)
My job as ministry administrative assistant is the first person they meet. If I can’t help them, I direct them to one of the pastors or whoever can meet their need. I count it a privilege to work here. Thank you, Lord.
Volunteers are Wonderful! I have a group of volunteers that help me with miscellaneous projects. They are all so committed to the Lord and love to help. This volunteer went the “second mile” and brought a quiche for brunch! Anytime I need her, she is there. She comes each Wednesday afternoon and helps with the newsletter bulk mailing, Sunday’s attendance and children’s worship bulletin. Our whole staff loves her and her faithfulness! Ruth 1:8 …may the Lord bless you for your kindness….
