Everyone Can Serve

Give OnlineLook for opportunities to serve; don’t wait to be asked!  Remember, you can serve without being a part of an “official” ministry. We all can:

  • Extend the word of welcome, whether or not we are official greeters
  • Be listening caring friends, whether or not we are offical lay counselors
  • Be ready to give reason for the hope that is in us, whether or not we are on the evangelism team
  • Be enthusiastic participants and ready to give a hand, whether or not we are on the planning or cleanup committees.

The February Mission Briefing

What color is February? I know it’s a strange question, but we all have associations like this. For me, February is a rich red; it’s a month characterized by love. We have Valentine’s Day on the 14th. The VanArsdol family has a lot of birthdays in February. Needless-to-say this is a great month for connection for us. Let me suggest that our mission focus for February will be connections.
 
Relationships are core to being human and also core to the Christian faith. How are your relationships doing? I expect a variety of responses about this.
 
Recently, many of you have experienced painful losses, some a daughter, others a sister, and still others a father. A chunk of our family is hurting today. The reason loss is so painful is because connection is an essential aspect of living. If loss is the season you are in, know that your church family loves you and our prayers are with you. My counsel is to continue to lean into your hope in Christ and to embrace those who are still with you. Those connections: Jesus, the church, family, and friends are the ways God provides for us in times like these.
 
We are all going to experience relational loss. Knowing that, the wise thing to do is to prepare the best we can. It’s really hard to prepare emotionally but we can prepare otherwise. This means that now is the time to do theological preparation, now is the time to build our trust in Jesus, now is the time to plug into the family of God, now is the time be with family, and invest in friends. If you have these, though grief rocks your world, you will have the resources to weather the storm and grow through it.
 
That’s your homework this month:
Theological Preparation: There are all kinds of ways to do this. I would encourage you to keep it simple. Read through your One Year Bible prayerfully. Think about the redemptive story that God is telling. Relate to the characters. Apply what the Holy Spirit lays on your heart. Unlike other stories we read or watch on television, these stories will ground you in reality more.
 
Build your trust in Jesus: Start the morning by surrendering your day to Him. Commit to doing what He says, whatever that might be. Then, listen. This is going to stretch you and make you more mindful of His presence in your life. Go out of your comfort zone a little. You may find yourself walking on water.
 
Plug into the family of God: To some extend the pandemic has hampered this for us, but not entirely. The beauty of the church is its relational nature, which is bigger than any pandemic. If you cannot get with the whole Body of Christ in worship, then find a way to get with one or two. Call someone, Zoom, meet for coffee. You need that connection and so do others. In fact, every time I reach out to connect with someone, I end up feeling like the one God blessed.
 
Be with family and friends: Again, the pandemic is going to effect how you do this. Practice caution, use technology, yet also remember there is no reason to ration your hugs with those in your immediate household. Perhaps one fruit of the social distancing is the opportunity to refocus time and attention on those closest to us already. Spend time with your inner circle until you can branch out further later.
 
I have a theory about humanity that comes out of the Christian worldview. I think that those who connect with others, in consistently loving ways, feel the most alive. Why don’t we test that this month? Love God and love others and see if, despite the circumstances, you sense more life in you. Jesus told us, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10b). Jesus doesn’t promise the abundance of possession or immunity to sickness and loss. Jesus promises Himself. He promises to love you and be with you until the very end of age. He promises to enfold you into His forever family. This is true life in its fullness, this is connection!
 
Love you, Pastor Kyle
