In last week’s update it was announced that the search committee was being formed and I am excited to now let you know who will be serving on this very important committee. The eight members of the committee are: Cassandra Benton, Nate Bostic, Samuel Green, Rod Karr, Tori Moore, Bob Phillips, Leann Sosamon, and Jim Taylor. After much prayer each of these individuals were selected to serve because of their discerning hearts and commitment to our church and the Kingdom at large. We truly believe that God placed each of these individuals on this committee because of their specific gifts and abilities and because of that we trust that this group as a whole will have His blessings of effectiveness and success. As this committee begins their work please keep them in your prayers, pray that they will be strong against Satan’s attacks, clarity and joy in their work, and a cooperative spirit of unity in their search.
While your ministry staff deserves your appreciation all year long don’t forget that October is “Pastor Appreciation Month.” FCC’s ministry staff is hard working and dedicated to promoting the Kingdom in Clinton and DeWitt County, why don’t you take a moment to send each of them a note of thanks and encouragement! While our ministry staff is very good, remember they are not there to do your work for you. Each of us needs to be out “Loving God, Reaching the World & Building the Church.” The corporate “programs” of the organized church don’t do that, we each have the individual responsibility to be out ministering and showing God’s love to others. Let’s move from “Corporate to Contagious.”
This Saturday October 19th is a great opportunity to serve with your family or friends at the Mobile Food Pantry. Sign up to volunteer on the church website under the upcoming-serve-opportunities tab.
This Sunday October 20th is a great opportunity to mix, mingle and visit down in The Underground from 9:00 until 10:30 for DONUT SUNDAY. Come grab a donut and head off to Bible School or stay and meet someone who you may not be acquainted with.
