On this Second Sunday of Lent, St Aidan’s celebrated Volunteer for Ministry Sunday. A couple of weeks ago we had our Vestry meeting (Our Annual General Meeting). At that meeting I called on the congregation to prayerfully discern how they might like to get involved further at St Aidan’s. There are a lot of strong ministries at St Aidan’s – each of them requiring time, energy , and resource to be effective. Today the congregation was given opportunity to talk with people who are currently offering leadership to twenty different Ministries in our parish. At Coffee Hour our team leaders had clip boards denoting the ministry that they were representing and folks moved about and signed up for further involvement in the life our church. Not everyone could be with us today – so — to those who could not be with us today, this blog and sermon post is your opportunity to be in touch and let me know where you might like to serve.
What Ministries are looking for support? Glad you asked…..This Picture has the following people (Left to Right) representing the following ministries:
I am pleased to say that we had a great level of participation today. With almost all of our ministries having new people sign on. We managed all of that with NO WATER at the church today – Turns out that if its cold enough, long enough, pipes will freeze. We had a decent turn out nonetheless and there was a great spirit of hopefulness and helpfulness.
If you are a member who was unable to be present today and would like to join your fellow travellers on the road who volunteered today, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate where you might like to serve.
