Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
Acts 6:2-4 (ESV)
2 And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, "It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables.
3 Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty.
4 But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word."
This passage of Scripture from the Book of Acts reminds us that the mission of the church is too complex for just a few people to handle. It requires all of us doing our part to keep the unity of the body in the bonds of peace. I call it the "One Another Ministry". We must all look after one another, especially the elderly and homebound within the congregation. Please remember this as you go about your weekly activities.
We had a great turn out for the Care Portal training last week. Over 15 people have volunteered to help meet the needs of families within our community who need basic necessities of life. These families will be referred to us by the Marion County Children's Alliance and the Department of Children and Families. God has called us for the purpose of good works.
COVID has not gone away, so please consider the new vaccine that is coming out this month.
Blessings and Be Safe,
Pastor Stanley M. Jacobs, Sr.
