We heartily welcome you to our fellowship. In church we all both give and receive. According to 1 Corinthians 12:7, you as well as the rest of us have been given a manifestation of the spirit for our mutual benefit. The Church marches forward by “that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part…” (Ephesians 4:16). God has provided abilities for every phase of His work (1 Corinthians 1:4-7; 12:4-7). You have a vital place to fill in our church. Prayerfully decide where you fit into God’s program.
Of course, service involves sacrifice of time and energy, but we can never begin to repay our debts of gratitude for the greatest of all sacrifices-the gift of the life of the Son of God Himself! Therefore since we have the privilege of being co-laborers with God let us be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord. For as much as we know that our labor is not in Vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:57).
Pastor, Rev. Charles Perry
