Tribute to Church Volunteers

sound-boardThis morning something I already knew was reinforced. We have some of the most awesome volunteers in the world at Grace Community Church.  It takes 150 or more volunteers each week to make a Sunday work. All our volunteers give selflessly to the vision of Grace from the parking lot, to working with children, to greeting and the stage crew.  Their dedication each week amazes me.

I was especially impressed this morning at the expertise of our tech team.  We had a rough start to the day. It seemed every piece of equipment had a bug in it.  Microphones wouldn’t work, chords were missing adapters, projectors didn’t connect with the computers and nothing seemed to work the first try.  With 10 minutes before the first service they were still checking my microphone for a problem.  All the while no one lost their patience and I even heard a few jokes passed between the crew.  When the service began, everything went smoothly and we had another great day.  These folks are incredible!

A church cannot run efficiently without volunteers.  I am thanking God tonight that we have so many dedicated people who give of their time and resources to make Grace Community Church the church that it is.  The Kingdom grows through their efforts.

For whom are you thankful?

    Thanks Jimmy. I think that’s really what makes our team so great…the heart you bring to your work.

    Thank you, but I think I’m speaking for all the volunteers at Grace when I say like your sermon this morning “We Take Jesus To Work”. We all consider our volunteer service at Grace to be a Staff Position and take it just as serious as if we were paid staff. When something isn’t working it is our job to fix it so that we can bring glory and honor to our Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday morning without any distractions.
