Stephen Ministry Facts
Ready? Set? Minister! Riding a bike. Using a new computer program. Ironing a shirt. Training is important whenever anyone learns a new skill. Training is important in Stephen Ministry too. Before Stephen Leaders and Stephen Ministers begin their work, they go through a lot of training. When they start their official ministry, they’re ready.
To find out more about what this ministry has to offer, contact: Pastor Thomas, Betty Textor, or Abbe Heemeier.
Isaiah 51:6 “For the heavens vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment.” The things of this earth that hold our attention, that cause us worry, that tempt us away from the Lord: they are all passing away. They will vanish like a garment. They are not for us to worry over, but rather to use for the Lord’s purposes. The things of this world are not ends in and of themselves, but only means to be used wisely by the children of the Kingdom that has no end.
Offering Envelopes: If you are not receiving offering envelopes and would like them for 2019 please contact Ruth Miller.
Ladies Christmas Party: Invitations are in your mail box. Please sign up by December 5th if you plan on attending.
Christian School: There are 15 students at the Christian School that need some financial help with tuition. The list is on the back bulletin board. Stop by or call the school, if willing and able to help out.
Help the L.A. Homeless: When I (Freda) go to California next month to decorate floats for the Rose Parade I’ll be taking a suitcase of items for the homeless. If you’d like to donate they need: men’s long white socks, mittens, hats and gloves (all ages- for men, women and kids). If able to donate, place items in box on pew near elevator.
I’m also looking for an old medium size suitcase, (with wheels) to put items in. The suitcase will stay in California. So, if, you have one that you’d like to get rid of, let me know.
Open Offices: The following offices are open for election at our December Voters Meeting: President, Vice President Secretary, Treasurer & Asst. Treasurer, Financial Secretary, Trustee and Stewardship.
Please, prayerfully consider being a candidates for any of these positions. Contact Dan Howard or Pastor Thomas if you are interested in any of these positions.
