 Opportunities for Ministry

 

 

 

We are in need of Ushers & Readers for service. If you are able to help, please see Pastor Greg for more information!

 

 


We want ,… need to develop a children's ministry. In order for us to do this we need a ministry team to lead this. Pray about how God can use you in this ministry.


We have two openings on our Lay Mobilization Team. If you are interested about this give Rev. Greg or Suzy a holler.

 

 

We have an opening for our tech team. This entails being able to prepare our PowerPoint for a Sunday morning. Being able to play CDs when needed. Being able to operate our sound board and the video. It really is not complicated. Will not have to be there every Sunday maybe once a month. Training will be provided. If interested let Greg, Mike or Steve know.

FOOD PANTRY

Angie Edwards is looking for those interested in working with our food pantry. The goal for this ministry is to have food bags ready and sorted and ready to go when a call comes into the office. We need volunteers to sort and bag the food. We know that as the temperatures drop and heating bills go up needs will increase. We want to be proactive. If you can spare an hour or so a month, please let Angie know. Please consider making a special offering towards this ministry each month. Mark your offering as "food pantry assistance". Note: we should have a lot of sorting after November 15 with Scouting for Food picks up their donations.

BLESSED TO BLESS OTHERS

“It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4.

But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”
And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”
He said, “Bring them here to Me.”

I was asked to write about Sunday School and the Food Pantry. These verses seemed to cover it all. In the first verse, Jesus is talking to the devil who is tempting him to turn stones to bread because he knows Jesus is hungry. He’s been in the wilderness 40 days. It also, I believe, shows without a doubt, Jesus understood our physical needs. We are human; we need to eat, to drink.

We may only have two loaves and two fishes, but I believe if we will bring them to Jesus he will honor our request and he will multiply them. I believe if we get into his Word he will actually show us how that works. The best way to get into his word is to get in a Sunday School class or a small group Bible Study. If you don’t think we have one at Cooper for you, let’s talk. Let’s see what your needs are and were they can be met.

Oh, and by the way, in Matthew 4:4 Jesus was quoting the book of Deuteronomy. This is where the Charlie Daniels’ famous southern rock band gets the line Deuteronomy fought the devil. Paul says all scripture is useful, and I think he meant for more than just quoting. It’s there for our daily bread as well and there is enough to go around.
