Time and Talent
Every week I have been writing about the importance of serving Christ. The need is great.  You get a wonderful feeling when you know that you are serving to help Christ’s family.
Serving is not just for adults!  It’s a family affair.  Just look at it this way.  You come to church on Sunday and mom and the children can be greeters and dad could be an usher, or mom can be an usher (yes, women can be ushers) and dad a greeter.  The point is, the whole family can serve in one day.
Someone in the family can also be a reader, prepare communion, arrange flowers or be an acolyte. It’s good to show the children how to serve Christ as a family.
There are also other ways.  We have people In our congregation who can’t attend church but would love to have people visit them.  Church is their family, and when they can’t come they don’t get to visit with their family. They get very lonely.  We need people to help in this area.  Ralph and I visit members and we enjoy meeting with them.  Companionship is very important to one’s emotional, physical and spiritual health.
I give thanks to my God always for you . . . Because of the Grace of God that was Given you in Christ Jesus.  1 Cor. 4-5
Mark your calendar for February 9th – Volunteer Appreciation Day and Volunteer Fair.   We will have tables set up outside the church for you to meet the leaders of the various groups. Please stop by and get some information on the groups that might interest you. 
Thank you for supporting Redeemer by The Sea with your Time and Talent.
