We are highlighting Life Services this month. They are in need of some items: diapers (size 5-6), diaper cream, new/gently used baby clothes size 0-12 months, new/gently used maternity clothes. For more ideas go to their wish list on Amazon. They are also in need of a new dishwasher for their Maternity Home.
Children’s Ministry Volunteers
We are looking for some new volunteers to help in the raising up of the next generation in Christ on Sunday mornings. If you have thought about serving with the children’s Christian education in the past or it’s a new thought - please contact Pastor Matt and we can see what getting you involved can look like. For current volunteers - you should have received some Fall scheduling emails recently - please look out for those and respond back to Pastor Matt with your availability and scheduling approvals.
Breeze Church Management Software
We are going to start using a software soon that will help the church get more connected. Breeze has been super helpful to churches as a means to organize people and directories, offer online giving, manage events, and check-in children. We are excited to start using this and we will start rolling this out very soon. If we have your email in the current directory then you should be receiving an email in the coming weeks giving you the means to sign up and make a profile. Emails have been sent out, if you didn’t receive one please email Pastor Matt (email@example.com) or contact Stephanie so we can get one out to you.
We are going to be launching Fellowship Groups really soon! This will be the small group ministry here being sent out into our communities. We are calling them Fellowship Groups because "fellowship" brings the connotation of participation and sharing. Our Fellowship Groups will be geographic, community, and outreach based. If you’re interested, please reach out to Pastor Matt. He is currently working this month to get at least three groups launched this Fall, so email him (firstname.lastname@example.org) or find him on a Sunday ASAP.
Children's Ministry Intern
We are excited to offer an internship here at Berean! The Children’s Ministry Intern will help lead in the Christian education of the children at our church. This role will assist in pointing children to the Lord through classes, events, support and scheduling of teachers, and curriculum management. While this role would help the pastors carry the load for growing and mobilizing the children's ministry, this person would also be poured into and empowered, preparing the intern for future roles. To receive the full job description and application, please contact Pastor Matt.
