Clothing Bank update
In the coming few months Carla Eichhorn and Reta Visser will be phasing out of the leadership of the Clothing Bank. We are grateful that they stepped into this role last year and served with so much passion and energy.
Carla and Reta both feel, however, that their time has come to an end. They will be leading the Clothing Bank up until our opening on October 3.
From then on, the Clothing Bank will be taking a break for an indefinite period of time. We feel we have to give this important ministry back to the Lord, and allow him to move and raise up the right new leader or couple. It’s his work, after all, not our work. It’s our desire to see this important ministry thrive and continue to be a blessing to many people in need in our community, especially in economically uncertain times like this.
We would like to ask you to seek the Lord in the coming few months to provide the right leader so we will be able to restart soon. If you feel called to lead this ministry or if you are interested in finding out more, we would love to get in contact with you. Jo Dewan, one of our deacons, would love to start a conversation with you about that. Her number is 06-250 303 40. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The leader we are looking for would have the following characteristics:
· Social skills: you know how to bring people together from diverse backgrounds.
· Organizational skills.
· The right motivation: this is the most important characteristic we are looking for in a person. We need someone who will lead this team who loves God and loves his fellow human beings, and will represent the Lord and the vision of our church family well.
Thanks for praying along!
