So that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.
1 Corinthians 12:25-27

In this article series, “Be More Involved,” you will discover many ways in which you may be more actively engaged in serving our Lord. There are numerous aspects of church family life in which your unique gifts and skills are needed and can be effectively utilized. As family members, we receive from God His boundless blessings through each other, as well as, give back donations of our time, talents and treasures as offerings to our Lord that support and benefit the ministries of our church family as a whole.

In the month of July 2022, consider coordinating with the Human Care chairperson in developing strategies and/or coordinating projects in which basic needs are met. Offer to assist in the short-term scheduling of providing meals to families facing difficulties or arrange for transportation to medical appointments for those who undergone surgery. Volunteer to join the card committee and/or visitation teams. On a more personal level, make a phone call or send an email to a fellow parishioner to keep the church family ties strong.

Below are some details about how you can be more involved through demonstrations of God’s love at Bethany Lutheran Church.
