Jumping into a church position without all the “tools” you need can be a challenge! “Now what?” is a question we often hear from newly elected Council members and newly appointed committee chairs. Thank you for being open to God’s call and serving in your congregation. It is exciting to see how listening to God, the congregation and the community will lead us to use our gifts, open doors and help us live into our congregational vocation.
