Loving Together Joyfully Time and Talent Appeal

Loving Together Joyfully Time and Talent Appeal

.

The Stewardship Team has begun a new tradition. It’s one that will give you and everyone here at Saint Peter an opportunity to connect with more people (who you likely see on Sunday mornings but don’t know that well) and a chance to test drive one (or more) church ministries.

This is an appeal, not for money, but for time and talent. Let us introduce: the Loving Together Joyfully appeal.

The appeal will officially begin May 5th and will end on Test Drive Sunday, June 2nd. That Sunday, there will be one worship service and celebratory potluck on the labyrinth as we work together to grow a fruit bearing tree.

Every Sunday between now and June 2nd, you will hear stories from ministry team members during worship services, have the chance to participate in fun activities in-between services and pray over a list of possible ministry opportunities—large and small—that you can try over the summer.

You are invited to truly test drive a role or project here at the church that piques your curiosity and speaks to your God-given talents. Some of these activities will only involve an hour or two of your time, and some projects may have a few small group meetings to plan and initiate. We hope you will try several of these and see if there is a group you would like to continue to be a part of for a longer period of time down the road. You are also encouraged to try or start a new project all your own. Explore with us how God might be inspiring you to become more involved at Saint Peter.

Thank you for considering the Loving Together Joyfully appeal. It is one the Stewardship Team hopes will become an annual tradition at Saint Peter. Please pray for our common work together as we continue to reach out with the good news of Jesus Christ.
