I received a call this afternoon that the new position at my church has been approved by the elder cluster and I’ve accepted it.
Next Monday I will either be the new Communications Specialist or Communications Minister, depending on what the decision is to call it. It’s a benefits/insurance thing. I don’t care either way, frankly; I just want a chance to do some good work.
I’ll be taking care of the weekly bulletin, worship PowerPoints and the sheets handed out that feature the order of worship on Sundays. And I’ll be looking after the church Web site.
One of my goals is to transition the bulletin to an e-mail delivery system for all the folks who want to receive it that way, saving a lot of printing and postal costs. Another is to revive “Family Album,” formerly a quarterly printed piece that featured articles about interesting church members – but as an online, member-access only feature of the Web site.
Thank you to all of you who have had my employment on your prayer stovetop’s back burner all these weeks. I truly appreciate it.
