Last month (May 6th), we had a serving Sunday. I made up some new cards as tools to help people think about where they might be able to serve.
Sometimes ministries approach getting people connected by ministry — here’s ____ ministry, and here are all the different ways you can serve within that ministry.
This approach went another direction — starting with people’s natural interests. Here’s a closer look at how the cards looked. (These are two of the areas I am in charge of under the creative arts umbrella.) The actual tasks fall under different ministries: for example, the arts and crafts card — the first two bullets are my areas, the third bullet is the baby blanket ministry, and the third area falls under Sunday services, special events, as well as children’s ministry (3 ministries)!
We laid all the cards out on a table and many people came by and took them. I still have yet to count how many were taken of each one… it’s been a bit low on my priority list as so many other things have been going great guns to finish out the year!
This coming year I’d like to figure out how to make a stand to put these cards in so that people can browse at any time.
