SV Serve EXPO
Sundays, April 17th & 24th
The SV Serve Expo is a fantastic event. There will be 12 different areas set up in the Atrium for people to get information on over 30 different opportunities to serve. (Yes, there will still be coffee and donuts available at the normal times.) The Expo will be available immediately after each of the worship services on April 17th and 24th. Representatives from each of the serving opportunities will be available to answer questions and will have their own specific informational flyers.
The service of volunteers that carry out all of the many things that are done through our church is vital. In reality, outside of some paid personnel, the ways that Severns Valley impacts the lives of people are done largely through a committed base of volunteers. The Expo is a way to make everyone aware of the high value and appreciation that the Severns Valley Staff and leadership place on all of our wonderful volunteers.
We constantly hear from our volunteers of the blessing they receive as they use their talents and abilities to serve the Lord. That is ultimately what a believer is doing, no matter what the area of service is, offering up their efforts to the Lord Jesus himself. The hope of this Expo is to both inspire and inform so as to give more people the opportunity to get in on the incredible blessing of serving. A missing element in many Christians lives is the offering of themselves in some area of service.
There is an old saying that relates to those about to buy a new car, “Kick the tires and try out.” There will be information cards available in the bulletin and around the Atrium that allows each person to indicate which area of service they are interested in. Leaders of that ministry will contact you about the areas of service you indicated on the card. Filling out the card does not obligate anyone in anyway but allows each person to take another step in the possible discovery of a way to serve. We encourage everyone to just “kick the tires.” In other words, learn about an area to serve you are interested in and then try it out for a little while. Most people have to serve in several different ways before they find the best fit for them.
Don’t miss out on the blessing of serving. We hope to see you at The SV Serve Expo.
