A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, far away...just kidding! I once heard 'what if we were to change our wording from volunteers to servants would that change our perception?' I'm not so sure, but it doesn't change the fact that we do in fact need volunteers or servants. Every organization needs volunteers in order to function to its full potential. If you been in church, whether in person or on line, you have witnessed that we have been doing something different during our children's time lately. An individual from Bethel saw that we were in need of worship volunteers, and indicated that people needed to see or hear something 7 times before it was committed to memory (I once heard 17 times). Anyway, this person had an idea, and donated 16 $10 Casey's Gift Cards to be used to do something fun from then until the end of the calendar year. The fun, was having a child/youth pick a number that corresponded with a name of someone who had volunteered that week, with the criteria that they had to be present to 'win.'
This person had gone through the trouble of listing all the things that people do to volunteer at the church throughout the year, and tallied it all up to just under 4,000 for the year! That is way more than any 1 person can do, way more than even 20 people can do! We need each other to live into our full potential! So we have created a Google Spreadsheet, that one sheet is for 2022, and then the other is for 2023 for Worship Volunteers/Leaders. I invite you to take a look at your calendar and see what you have available and sign-up today!

I love God, and people! When the two come together it is like chocolate and peanut butter or peanut butter and banana!
