Worship with Us This Sunday - 10:15 a.m.
Following Jesus is more than an just a phrase. Embedded in the call to follow Jesus includes those in any form of leadership. From time to time God re-aligns us. Generally those in leadership admonish and caution Jesus followers to seek what God is doing and join him. "Be open to the leading of the Spirit" becomes the call when places of ministry need those gifted and talented to serve others.
Our Youth Pastor, Nathan, and his wife Carrie, sensed God re-aligning them with a passion to lead out in our "community ministries." Nathan continues to hold a love for youth and their families. He will be involved in ministry to students. However, his primary energies will be given to leading out in our "Wednesdays Are For Others" community ministries. Already he has helped coordinate our Food Pantry, Clothes Closet and our Homework Assistance Program. He continues to work toward the opening of our free Medical Clinic. We hope to open up in January.
Along the way this re-alignment also comes with a new way he is supported. God has provided the primary means for his financial support outside of the budget for Snow Hill. Nathan and Carrie believe this will give Snow Hill and opportunity to expand a number of ministries and develop new opportunities in our community ministries.
We are excited when people come to say, "God has led me to serve …." When one of our staff members illustrates this in his own following of Jesus it should spur us all to look around and see what God is doing and participate with him.
We are glad Nathan is with us and giving illustration of following int he way of Jesus responding to the work of the Spirit to the glory of the Father.
