Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Thank You To All Who Serve

November 25th, 2016

You do a lot around here.

I love it.

After the ladies meeting last Friday, my wife came home raving about how well you ladies did serving. You saw the need and did whatever jobs were waiting. I love that.

And your great service in reaching out to guests… that’s wonderful. Some of you go out of your way to be extra friendly—talking with the guest, welcoming them, showing them where to sit, etc.—I think that’s great. Even though it’s awkward meeting new people, I appreciate those of you who push past your nerves and go do what you should. You are so friendly, and I would love that to spread to others, too. Thank you—those of you who do this—for being the leader and the servant in this area.

Also, thank you to those who do periodic jobs, like Alexa scheduling games and Anastasia setting up chairs (ladies Bible study) and posting things on the website. And Michael C. doing the missionary videos whenever we have one, and all of you setting up tables last week. I really appreciate all those little things. That says a lot about you.

I know I miss things all the time. I know there are more ministries that you’re involved in—nursery, Jr. church, choir, and more that are also weekly—but I appreciate the thoughtful, intentional moments that I see you serving outside of yourself, investing in others.

It’s the simple things that make me happy. Seeing you greet others in church. Seeing you branch out of your friend groups to others. Seeing you welcome and include new people. Seeing you smile. Seeing you sing during congregationals.

I love those things. Thank you. Great work.

-Bro. Ryan
