We, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Romans 12:5
This past fall Bp. Andrew helped All Saints form task forces in six ministry areas, chaired by these leaders:
- Welcome—Janet McBrien
- Outreach—Tom and Patty Champion
- Audio/Visual—Bruce McBrien
- Pastoral Care—Dcn. Martha Learned
- Children’s Ministry—Cindy Carter
- Discipleship—Rick Brown
Each of these ministry areas seeks to reach out to Amesbury and our surrounding communities as well as serve the church body. In order to help these ministries to function well, we are inviting each of you to complete the attached very simple questionnaire so that we can gather information about which ministries you are involved in. You can also tell us if you would like to step back from a ministry or join a new one. There is also a link to a spiritual gifts assessment, to help you identify your spiritual gifts. Please help us by taking a few minutes to answer the questionnaire here.
St. Paul gave us the wonderful image of the Church being the body of Christ in the world. Christ is the head, but we are all the other parts of the body. When each member uses their gifts for the sake of the body, we function as a healthy unit. When we recognize the gifting of others, we can honor and encourage one another to use the gifts God has given each one. Then the body can flourish and thrive for the sake of Christ’s mission in the world.
We are blessed when we see others exercising their gifts, especially in areas where we know we are not gifted. In the same way, others may look to you and be blessed when you exercise your gifts. Thank you to each of you for all that you bring to All Saints, just by being who you are! Every member if of great value!
Again, here is the link to the questionnaire.
