On Saturday, September 24, 2016, Reid Memorial will offer our 2nd Annual Inasmuch Day of Service, a day of worship and service to our community. The morning will start with a light breakfast, a brief worship service followed by a day of service and fellowship.
God’s gifts of grace come in many forms. Each of you has received a gift in order to serve others. You should use it faithfully. 1 Peter 4:10
God has created a multitude of gifts for each of one of us. He has given them to us to be used. Unless you know what your gifts are and are being intentional about using them, you are missing out on the fullness of what God intends for your life. Since God has called you to be His fellow worker in this world, He is interested in helping you discover and use your gifts.
Have you been so busy working that you've never really taken time to think about what God has put you on this planet to do? Or, have you tried to figure it out but feel like you're stuck in discerning who God has created you to be and/or what He's designed you to do? Often through life’s circumstances, God has encourages you to take a new look at your gifts and what He's calling you to do.
By using your gifts, you can be an instrument of God's grace in church, in your family, the community and at work. Not only will you change other's lives, but your own life as well.
As the Congregational Life ministry team begins to discern and prepare for this year’s day of service, We are asking you, our church family, to examine you own giftedness and how best to serve those in our community. Is there any area where you would like to lead or share your talents? Do feel called to a particular area of service?
Please take a moment in the days ahead to prayerfully consider how you may contribute to our day of service in September. If you have any questions or would like to facilitate a particular activity, please contact Gene Clark, Congregational Life Chairperson or Joy Weigle, Director of Christian Education
