As we wrap up the sermon series on what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus I have been thinking about the call to be Moving. The call to use our time, talent and treasure to serve people. This call may seem daunting if you are new to Restoration and just want to find your place in a community that appears to be in constant motion. A community that appears knit together and you are unsure about where your onramp starts.
You may be surprised to read that I have been waiting for you! There is a place for you to start your journey of being known. A place where we are yearning for you to step into the opportunity of serving with your time and talent. A place to step into our life together on Sundays.
On the average Sunday, we have about 420 adults attend services. Did you know that we need about 80 volunteers each Sunday? That is 20% of our adult congregation EVERY Sunday. Multiply that by 4 to 5 Sundays a month and there is an opportunity for each and every one of us to participate in Sunday liturgy. An opportunity for each and every one of us to take a deeper dive in our discipleship by moving to serve. An opportunity to practice living out our statement, “I have a relationship with God that is important to me.”
You may be wondering what Sunday Liturgical Servants look like. They are the greeters that meet you on the sidewalk, the ushers that hand you a worship guide, the people behind the scenes that set out the wine and water and keep the pews supplied with green cards. The people that pray and the people that keep the power point on point. There is a place for everyone. It’s easy.
For those that already volunteer on Sundays, Thank you! Your service has created a space for others to worship and pursue Jesus with our community. We are so thankful for your willingness to serve on Sundays.
So, whether you have been attending for years or just arrived last week, please contact me. I really want to meet you!
Have a good week,
