We had the pleasure of Joy Anderson giving an account of service opportunities at the church. She outlined the upcoming Christmas Market from if you wish to help with sign placement. If you work the actual event you will need to attend a half hour orientation the 11th at 7pm. Cat also informed us to wear red shirts to distinguish the workers.
. We have a few people signed up to assist in this project but we need more. The church needs cashiers, inventory, and booth attendance personnel. If you cannot attend the event there is another opportunity to assist. The event needs to be advertised so signs in the Richardson area need to be put out the Friday of the event. Email Joy
The other event she outlined is the tote bag for homeless around Christmas time. We can all commit to bringing a tote for this project but we can also assist by organizing and delivering the totes. They call the organization “working the bags” and this happens on the
Body and Soul ministry is still on hold. The church where this is held is still undergoing unexpected renovations. Once this is complete we will commit to a monthly or quarterly attendance.
Heath pulled off another excellent discussion on financial matters related to biblical principles. It appears as though we all struggle with similar conflicts on giving and responsibility. It was summed up that the main conflict is between “logic and faith.” Hopefully the discussion will prompt a more giving spirit in all of us.
I finally corned Rodney Whitfield in the service and asked him for direct assistance in developing a bible study in our class. The class today decided to focus on Romans. I plan to meet with Rodney and receive a structured series on Romans with a 10 minute DVD introduction. He said it was good discussion material and will hopefully meet the need for bible study that we have all been looking for.
