According to the 2016 National Church Life Survey, in which CrossCulture participated, 44% of us agree that their gifts, skills, and talents are being used well at CrossCulture. Meanwhile, 26% want to be more involved in church. Last year, when we conducted a general church survey and found that 48% of us here at CrossCulture are not serving in any ministry.
In Luke 19:11-27, the parable of the minas, Jesus is encouraging the disciples to ‘Engage in business until I come.’ Jesus is coming back, and meanwhile we should not be idle. Instead, we should work out our salvation in our obedience to God and our service for Him and others.
Today is CrossCulture’s ministry fair. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get on board with God’s mission at this church. If you are not serving yet, come and join the 44% of people who have experienced God using their gifts and talents for His kingdom! Sure, joining a ministry is not the only thing that you can do to engage in God’s kingdom work on earth. But it is undoubtedly a great way to join Him in His mission. Happy serving!
