It takes hundreds of volunteers to provide a level of quality and care at each of our weekend services, throw in an Easter weekend and you have a different ball game. Yet, as we approached the weekend there was a sense of calm within the office—each ministry was completely “staffed” across all of our campuses and services, some had back-ups! It was reported to me this week that forty-three people who had never served before jumped in to help out, and as of Tuesday, eight of them enjoyed the experience so much they’ve decided to keep serving.
I just wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You” to everyone who had a part in serving this past Easter weekend. You ministered to me. You see, I have a daughter who is far from God, yet she felt comfortable enough to bring her boyfriend, who is not a believer, to one of our Sunday services. They both experienced a welcoming atmosphere with vibrant worship and a compelling message. What’s more, one of my sons recently began a relationship with a girl who has had an unpleasant church experience in her past, she has experienced Richwoods twice in the last two months and commented to my wife, Jill, this Sunday at lunch that she’s never experienced church like this before, she just loves being there. She is finding God in a new and fresh environment that is awakening her spirit.
These kind of things happen when people like you commit your time and energy to help build the church, and I wanted you to know you’ve had a spiritual impact on my family. Thank You!
