We need your help! I’d like to suggest three ways you can make this an amazing event and reach others.
Show up. I always loved that Woody Allen quote, “80 percent of life is showing up.” It is so true! Making time to come, helping out, and being present with others is vital to the success of this day. Whether you come for one of the three pet blessings, or to see the Fort Worth Police K-9 Unit demonstration, the performing dance studio, or the petting zoo and pony ride, make time to come join in the fun and make new friends. Showing up affords you the opportunity to connect with others in our church community in addition to those who will come to our campus for the first time.
Sign up. The old adage, “many hands make light work,” comes to mind. We have many small needs - from borrowing coolers and pop up tents, to needing volunteers for our welcome table, face painting, and individuals to show our facilities to guests (such as docents). Lists to sign up may be found in the back of the church along the windows. We can use your help, even if for a half hour slot that day. Please look over the sheets to find ways you may help out or come join in!
Speak up. Whether you are checking out events and vendors or filling a volunteer slot, take the opportunity to get to know others. Invite someone to upcoming activities and things in which you are involved, like the Men’s Group, Growth Groups, youth activities and our Sunday School. We have a great community and we want others to discover it as well!
October 1 will be a fun filled day! I hope you will enjoy every moment of it, and will also reach out to those who will be new to us that day. We will have brochures about our church to out for distribution, and could use your help in getting the word out about our amazing church fellowship. Remember it is as easy as showing up, signing up, and speaking up as we show the love and community we have found at Saint Barnabas.
