Back in the day, ‘pumped’ was the word. It meant excited, into it, ecstatic, over the top. I have no idea what the word is today. Whatever it is…I’m “pumped.” We have worked incredibly hard to develop and communicate our vision for Life Change. We’ve concentrated on Encounter and believe our worship is making it possible for people to meet God. We’ve poured ourselves into Connect and we are now seeing dozens of new people engage in study of God’s word with God’s people.
However, every time we’ve talked about our strategy (Encounter, Connect, Serve), we’ve had to say, “Serve is still under development.” Well, it’s here. It’s not fully developed. We have a lot yet to learn and sharpen. But we’re unveiling this Sunday. And I’m pumped.
You now have a place to go to find out what you can do in serving here, in the congregation. We have a place to let you know of ministry opportunities in the community (those we sponsor as well as others). There is a place where you can become familiar with our world outreach (this month we’re featuring our international ministries). There is an “item of the month” which we believe will overflow in generosity.
The gifts of our staff have come together to produce a great place to see what God can use us to do. My dream is for all of us to become like Jesus (Life Change). He was a servant (our goal and our method); so we will serve. This is a major tool for accomplishing that. Come by…look…ask questions…get involved.
Then, put some word with it… I’m going to stick with ‘pumped’ until one of you gives me a newer, more accurate word.
