Volunteer appreciation

Tonight we had a dinner for all the different volunteers that serve in the many ministries at the church.  It was really cool getting everyone together.  It is crazy that a little over a year ago the entire church was literally the size of what now is our volunteer team.  When  in the Old Testament Nehemiah was carrying out the vision that God had given him, rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, he said that the people had a heart to work.  That perfectly describes the loving body at fresh life.  There are so many people that are not content to sit on the sidelines and watch the action, they are on the front lines serving kids or ushering, or doing media ministry.  It was a lot of fun and we talked about all the exciting things on the horizon this summer and we rejoiced about how much the Lord has done in our midst.
