Although I am not the full-time preacher for our home congregation, when I am not on the road conducting meetings, the elders ask me to preach. Recently, in between Sunday morning class and our collective worship service, I have begun running a slideshow of simple suggestions to help our church family grow in functionality. I call the slideshow "Functional Faith Family."
Here are a few more of those suggestions.
Everyone loves to get a "Warm Fuzzy." You know, those special little notes that sometimes come anonymously or are found unexpectedly. Build unity and goodwill within the church. Get all warm and fuzzy!
Use your personal Bible study time to write a lesson on a favorite topic. Present it to the elders. If they agree, ask to present it or have someone else read it to the appropriate audience.
Few things create greater bonding than good food. Take time to study the importance of eating in the Bible.
Church libraries often are a great source of Bible information. Unfortunately, they are seldom used. Make it your goal to visit the library and see if you can include any of the books in your daily Bible study time.
What's that you say? You don't have a daily Bible study time? THEN START TODAY! :)
Galatians 6:10 (NIV)
"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."
Few things are more urgent or important than preparing ourselves to be functional and, therefore, a benefit to the family of believers.
