Mark your calendars!
On Tuesday night, December 5, at 7:00 p.m. we will be hosting our First Trimester 2018 Ministry Night. Once again, it is time to invite suggestions, ideas, perspectives, and assistance with the ministry that we share as we look ahead to the start of ministry in 2018. We will be planning all of our ministries for the first four months of 2018 (January-April).
The last time that we did this in the summer, we had a great turnout. As a result, we had lots of constructive input into making St. James ministry the very best that it can be. This innovative approach puts the responsibility for doing ministry with the people. We gather. We plan. We do the ministry as the Body of Christ. Ministry is not the sole work of a paid staff. Ministry is the work of the people.
If you are unable to be present next week, you can still participate. Submit your Name, a suggestion for ministry, and How you would like to support the suggestion to either: Doreen@stjameslc.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am filled with a hope as I think about the ministry that God is calling us to do in 2018. Please pray for your church that we might have the capacity, will, and strength to do God's will in this place and beyond.
As always, I look forward to seeing you in worship. On Sunday, we begin the season of Advent.
