Sorry for the break in blogging – the holidays are so super busy I’ve been remiss in posting a new blog. I wanted to take a minute to dote on you. Last Sunday, our team did an amazing job getting the kids ready to go for their big debut in the Christmas service. I was overwhelmed with pride at being able to say that the success of our kids’ christmas program came mainly from the efforts of volunteers!
This past week there were a couple of issues that popped up that needed help at the church – who do you call? Children’s Ministry Workers! Were the issues Children’s Ministry issues? Nope – but that didn’t stop the team from jumping in and helping out. You guys continually astound me at your faithfulness and ability to meet the needs that are there.
We minster as a team and we are a family. Let me express my thanks to all those who have served this year and have faithfully given their time to serve the needs of the kids, the team, and the church. You are the ones who make ministry possible at Bethel Temple. I would also like to say thank you to all who gathered around Nola to support her – the outpouring of love in her time of need was overwhelming. It was another display of how you think as a family of ministers.
There have been many times that I have bragged about the quality of the volunteers in Children’s Ministry at Bethel to the rest of the staff and to others around the country. I continue to believe you are the finest group of people I have ever had the privilege to lead.
I can never fully express my appreciation for all you do – but please take a minute to stop by the check-in booths in either the Nursery of Children’s Center and pick up a token of my appreciation for you.
