A Grand Af-FAIR

After the morning worship service on May 5, the fellowship hall of New Hope Baptist Church was the scene of the third annual Ministry Fair.
A lively, noisy crowd wound their way among displays of a large sampling of ministry opportunities offered by our church body. As their eyes and feet were busy exploring the sights, their hands and mouths were busy making the  provided sandwich lunch disappear.
A wide variety of ministries was represented ranging from bouncing babies on the knee to clearing timber and moving dirt, from teaching and guiding children to aiding and supporting widows, from riding motorcycles for Jesus to slinging hash for Jesus.
You are a vital part of the body of Christ. Find your niche or create a new niche that reflects your passion, your unique gift. Ways of shining the light of God’s love are limitless.
“For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ.
For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.
For the body is not one member, but many.
But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.
And if they were all one member, where would the body be?
But now there are many members, but one body.
Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.”
I Corinthians 12:12-14, 18-20, 27 (NAS)
