THE WEDNESDAY WORD…
Because waiting ‘til Sunday is too long
“They shall sing of the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD.” Psalm 138:5
Welcome to THE WEDNESDAY WORD, a weekly communication of Emmanuel United Methodist.
WHY I WANT YOU TO CONSIDER CHURCH LEADERSHIP
The beauty of the United Methodist Church is that it has never lost sight of the cooperative leadership of the church by both clergy and laity. That’s why the laity (yes, that’s you!) are the leaders of all of our administrative teams. We have structured each team to have 3 people each plus the Lay Leader, the Lay Member to Annual Conference and the Pastor. We are in danger at this point of not having enough people to fill the positions that are open. If that happens, the decisions will be made by fewer and fewer persons, which is not how the United Methodist Church was created to function. Please pray and seek God’s guidance about whether God is calling you to leadership in the church. You don’t need any special skills, although a basic understanding of working with budgets is helpful for the Finance Team. We have training available for each position to help you know what to do. If you’ve forgotten what positions are open, please check the website at www.eumcbradenton.org. Thanks, Pastor Kim
