THE POWER OF VOLUNTEERING

Hello Deer Flat Family! I have yet to get over one of the greatest evenings we’ve ever had at Deer Flat, and we’ve had a lot of evenings. This past Sunday, the Staff provided a “THANK YOU DINNER” for all of our fantastic volunteers. It was such an outstanding night with 350 of the most generous servants you could ever find at a church.

There is something about serving and volunteering that not only makes a great contribution, but it drains us of our self, while filling us up with a sense of gladness that we stepped up and served. This is one of the things that marked the evening. The Deer Flat ministry staff loved every minute of honoring these people. Fact: We can’t do what we do at Deer Flat Church without great volunteers. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO VOLUNTEER AND TO ALL WHO STEP UP IN THE DAYS AHEAD!

As hard as it is to believe, we have just rounded the corner of the first four months of 2019, and summer will be upon us before we have a chance to get ready for it. With summer comes lots of opportunities to serve. Between Summer Camps and VBS we are going to need plenty of volunteers. For VBS alone, we need workers, teachers, people to make or donate cookies, and more. For the Summer Camps, we need the same…people who can go and spend most of their week at Camp Cascade being a counselor, or any other of the vast open slots that make the camp function.

This Sunday there will be a table in the lobby that has all the details about the upcoming VBS week. It’s the second week of June. Dare I say that it’s just over a month from now? Why not stop by the table and check out the way that you can invest in some of the greatest children, and help life the load for Julie and her team. You will be a HUGE answer to her prayers and a HUGE blessing to the work of the Kingdom.

The month of May brings with it lots of great things at Deer Flat. Let’s maximize on our times together. This Sunday I will be speaking about the unusual times that we find ourselves living in. Come expecting an outstanding Lord’s Day. I can’t wait to see you!

All For Jesus,

Pastor D
