Adventures in Ministry – June 15, 2009

One of the great joys of ministry is to have the opportunity to work with a great team of Congregational Care Ministers. These women and men are trained and equipped to provide care for the congregation in partnership with the efforts that I lead as a pastor of congregational care.

This evening I am grilling hamburgers and hot dogs and we are going to take the opportunity to celebrate their care and ministry at Resurrection. Those whose last names begin with N-R in the congregation receive better care because of the dedication of these volunteers.

Thank you!

Stories from Easter (3 of 4)

Nicole and I had the privilege to serve as ushers at the 3:00 PM service which was a new thing for me. Volunteers were low for that service and Nicole and I were assigned to section N (center in the mezzanine, for you Resurrection folks). It gave me a new appreciation for the role that the ushers play and recognized the great value in all the volunteers that make worship on any given weekend possible.

Thanks to all of you who make worship possible on any given weekend!
