Darin’s Doodles

Hello everyone and Happy Autumn. It is quite obvious that the weather is changing here in Nebraska as the leaves are turning colors and some even falling and of course the crops are being harvested.  As the weather seasons change so does the seasons of the church.  The church recently held its annual meeting where the congregation approved the 2017-18 budget along with electing three new people to the church board of directors.  Those new to the board that will serve until 2020 are Bruce Holdsworth, Wayne Nelson, and Ron Ringland.  The returning board members and officers are: Ann Morris – chair, Gwen Townsend – vice chair, Ken Royal – secretary, Pat Runge – financial secretary, Phyllis Steward, and Janice Znamenacek.  Our congregation is always blessed by all the people that make that commitment to lead and help the church in this capacity.  With the changing of the board it is also the time of the year that the ministry committees are looked at again with people encouraged to help with any of them.  There are multiple committees to serve on from helping clean the church building, memorial committee, and visitation/outreach just to name a few.  There are always things that need to be done at and for the church, if you would be interested in helping out please contact a board member or me.  As we transition into a new church fiscal/calendar year it’s a good time to think about everything we do as church members and as Christians.  We are taught and shown by Jesus Christ to essentially give all that we can and have to share the word of God with the world.  This was Jesus’ ultimate calling on earth.  Bringing people to know God and accept him as the Lord of all is the ministry we know and what we should continue to do.  What is your contribution to God’s ministry whether through Bennet Community Church, your local church, or just by yourself?  It’s completely an individual decision, between you and God.  Ask yourself this:” how would God feel about my work and service on earth?”

In spirit, Rev. Darin
