Thrive recently welcomed Julia Rathbun to the team as a ministry consultant with a focus on safe church work. She shares some of her story and hopes for the role below. Join us in giving her a warm welcome!
Our church has our members divided into 6 districts with an Elder and a Deacon for each one. This way, if someone has a Council or Pastoral need, they can reach out to their District Elder and/or Deacon.
A few years back I preached a series of sermons on the Ten Commandments. As part of worship each week, we used a responsive reading of this key part of God's Law as a call to discipleship. There are several great readings out there.
