Dear Church Family:
Exciting things are coming down the pike
in your and our church for you
1. To get involved and
2. To enjoy.
This Pastor’s Page is on 1. Getting
Involved, and next week’s will be on the
2. To Enjoy part.

Nominations for each To Get INVOLVED
The (bi)-yearly nomination process is underway. We will
continue the traditional way outlined in the Seventh-day
Adventist Church manual and may work on updating it to
be more flexible on an on-going basis down-the-line. For
now, terms of reference and job descriptions are being
developed and worked on, something also part of an
ongoing participatory process.
Before the nomination committee starts meeting, a form
that was previously created and used by Lubbock church in
the past has been reprinted and distributed today.
Its purpose is to give you ideas about how your church
operates and how you could be part of this. The ideas
printed in it are intended to complement your experience
and observations. Four blank lines are provided, but feel
free to let your imagination roam and add to the form.

Also, I am suggested five questions for your consideration:
1. From the lists given in scripture (1 Corinthians 12: 4-11,
Romans 12: 4-8 and Ephesians 4: 7-16, 1 Peter 4: 10)
(and you can ask me or Google) what Spiritual gifts
you feel you may have?
2. To what people and activities does your Heart lead you?
Do you like the elderly, the young, the poor, the
educated, those in business? Do you like to help, lead,
mentor, organize, follow?
3. What are the Abilities, talents, and areas of expertise
you put to work in your daily life and work? Do you
have IT know-how, time or money on your hand,
medical, artistic or administrative skills?
4. Does your Personality lead you to be an upfront or a
behind-the-scenes person? A starter, or someone who
carries things out to finish? Visionary or detail-oriented?
5. What past or proven Experience do you bring? Have
you ever done what you may like to do? How did that
go for you?

In one word that I use as an acronym:
What is your S.H.A.P.E.?
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another,
as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1 Peter 4: 10

Please return the filled flyer today or take the week to pray
and think about it to better fill your form and return it next
week. It is God’s will that you would be INVOLVED.
With Love,
Pastor Sam
