Summer has provided many with a great opportunity to take a break, and enjoy the world that God has created. Rest is a good thing – it helps us long toward a new and perfect world of eternal rest.
And yet, the time comes when we all return to the reality of this world. For this reason, I have been looking forward to today for a long time. It is the day that we formally launch all of our TAC ministries.
There are so many people who are so involved in serving Jesus across our church. Many give up enormous amounts of their time and energy to serve you and the Lord Jesus. We want to do a better job in acknowledging and thanking people, and above all thanking God for his provision.
Today is also the day in which we will commission Rachael Stabback and Leesa Vesey, as they commence ministry apprenticeships (MTS) at our church. It is such a joy to have them join us in this capacity.
Finally, I want to mention the wonderful staff team. We had a staff day during the week – and I wish all at TAC could have been a “fly on the wall.” They are enthusiastic, thoughtful, insightful and incredibly gifted.
2018 is looking good.
