Renewing our Commitment - Phase II
God greatly blessed Phase I of Renewing our Commitment. Our congregation exceeded our goal for offerings last fiscal year. We should all be truly thankful. But, we can never rest from doing God's work.
This fall, we are launching Phase II of the Renewing our Commitment program with a focus on time and talents. We will begin with an emphasis on God's Word. Starting September 4, Pastor Bauer will be preaching a seven part sermon series with the theme, "Different Gifts, Same Grace". Pastor will show us from God's Word that God gives each of us our own talents and that God expects us to use them in his service.
Our goal is to match our members' talents and interests with the activities we perform in God's service. To do this, the Church Council will be documenting the service opportunities at New Life. The result will be a list of these service opportunities and a "job description" for each one. We will all then be asked to prayerfully consider the gifts God has given us and to match our talents and interests to the service opportunities on a Time and Talent form. The Stewardship Committee will create a database from these forms that will be available through our website to church leaders.
Through this process, we will make the best use of the time and talents with which God has blessed us. As we learn from the process, we will continue to update the job descriptions and keep the database up to date.
