I was intrigued to discover that our church sends pictures to everyone after they are baptized. You may not think that is a big deal. On normal Sundays we might have 2 or 3 people per service (for 5 services). That is a total of 10-15 pictures.
But our volunteers still follow through when we have huge baptism responses. Last October, 375 people took that step of faith on one day at our Central Campus. Our team of volunteers then invested an incredible number of hours to sort through and deliver personalized pictures to each person and their family.
Whenever we experience a personal touch like that, someone did a lot of work to make it possible. It doesn’t come easily or without personal sacrifice.
Let’s not take that for granted.
- When on the receiving end, be sure to show your appreciation
- And…be intentional about giving to others on a regular basis
Thanks for listening.
