Called to Serve

Debbie Steen

Have you found your place? I want to encourage each of you to ask the Lord where you can serve others. Our church is growing and welcoming new families each week. Local and international mission opportunities abound.

Currently the greatest need in preschool is for couples that are willing to volunteer in our Extended Teaching Care (ETC) ministry. This would mean taking one Sunday a month at the 10:50 a.m. service and joining a three or four year old preschool class. You get the pleasure of walking the class to the Chapel for their music and Bible story time. After Chapel time, the children go to the gym for recreation led by a preschool teacher. You return to the classroom for about 20 minutes of activities before parents come to pick up. We are in need of five couples to fill vacancies in this wonderful ministry that blesses so many young families. Is one of these classes waiting for you?

Would you consider assisting master teachers in preschool Sunday school? The fall/spring quarter is staffed BUT we need couples for the winter/summer quarter.

You would step out of your Bible study class for three months to share the love of Jesus with the little ones of our church. I would love to visit with you about the opportunities available to serve in preschool.

There are so many other areas of service that have nothing to do with preschool:

• Sign up and join us as we reach out to our community through the Car Show on Sunday, September 15. Everyone is needed!

• Volunteer at the Ministry Center or Jenks CarePoint.

• Take part in our fabulous Christmas Dinner Theater.

If you have any questions about opportunities to serve, don’t hesitate to talk with a staff member. The joy of serving is like none other. Let us all strive to have a servant heart like our savior. May we live in love, act in grace.
