Please Don’t Volunteer

Volunteering is what we do when we help serve a meal at the homeless shelter, build a house with Habitat, or help sort books at the Planned Parenthood book sale.

Volunteering is what we do at a place that is Important to us—but not at a place that belongs to us.  A volunteer, in most cases, is just visiting.  Maybe it’s helpful, but it’s not the same as belonging to something.  It’s not the same as contributing.   Sunday’s sermon reflects on why leadership, stewardship and engagement in the church matter.

Barb Glass is the Pastoral Care Associate available for the week beginning at 11 am on Sunday morning, July 19. You may reach her at pastoralteam@ucdsm.org or by calling her telephone number found in the church directory.
