Dear church family, friends and visiting guests; greetings in the name of Jesus Christ. I pray that you will receive a spiritual blessing in the service. Today, I conclude a three-part series on “Serving Behind the Scenes.” We have looked at the life of Barabbas, Hur and today a willing servant named Epaphras. Epaphras was a faithful servant who served in the shadows, but he made a large and lasting impact on those around him. Wouldn’t you like to make a difference for the cause of Christ and the good of the church? Are you willing to be used of the Lord and invest in the lives of others? Will you commit to serve the Lord alongside others? Our church and school are in need of people who would be willing to serve. Right after the morning service I welcome you to visit our church leaders who will be at tables outside on the front porch of the church. Why not pour some of your time into others. We are looking for Greeters, help on the Church Attendance Team or help with the Temple Restorers who deal with the physical needs of our church. Perhaps you would like to be a help to our Children’s, Jr. High or Teen’s Ministry; be sure to visit their tables. If you have a love for music please visit our Music Ministry table. Our Women’s Ministries has a need for helpers. Our Sunday Children’s Ministries have need for Nursery, Pre-school and Junior Church helpers. There is a real need in our Wednesday Night Children’s Ministry. You may want to help with Games, Teach or be a Snack Provider. If Sports is your thing, Coach Briggs needs volunteers for all our sports teams. Temple Christian School is in need of Classroom, Lunchroom Helpers & Substitute Bus Drivers. If you love working with electronics you may want to visit the Media Services Team. They need an Assistant Sound Engineer, Projectionist, Camera Operator and a Podcast Producer. Why not join in the fun of Vacation Bible School and help with Decorating, Games, Teaching, Snacks during June 17-21.
