The church isn't a building, its a body
Dear New Life Community,
The church isn’t a building, It’s a body…the body of Christ, made up of many people. An important part of belonging to that body is serving in a practical way on Sundays. Serving in the church is more than volunteering. As Christians, we are called to be ministers of the gospel, and a fantastic way to do that is by serving in our church.
Galatians 6:10 “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Although we are technically volunteering our time and talents, we are serving for a much a greater purpose. The vision of New Life is helping usher in a time when every person in our Hill Country area knows the good news of God’s amazing love. It’s the people of the church that make sure that vision gets accomplished.
We want New Life to be a welcoming place for people to come and feel close to God, to sing, study scripture, learn and serve together, outside in God’s creation. In order for that to happen, it takes every person in our church body serving on a regular basis on Sundays. Serving on a regular basis is a great opportunity for us to get to know our faith community better and gives us a sense that we are part of something very special, which we are. To those who are already serving regularly, thank you. You are a part of making worship happen each Sunday.
All are welcome to serve too. It isn’t required that you have been at New Life for a certain amount of time or are a certain age. If you know how to read, you can sign up as a Reader. If you like telling people “Good morning” you would be a great Greeter. Snacks don’t need to be homemade, store bought is great. If you are unsure what is required of something you might be interested in serving at, please ask myself, another team member, Pastor, or someone you have seen serving before. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Peter 4:10-11 “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.”
