Ministry Minute

 

Mingle Ministry

 

Spend a few minutes thinking about your time at the Services this past Sabbath.

 

You walk from your car to the front door. Any mingling going on so far?

 

Probably not.

 

The front doors open and you step inside.

 

A greeter probably offers you a bulletin and a greeting.

What did you do about mingling? 

 

You walk toward the sanctuary door… and Get Inside.

 

The focus for a lot of us now is – Find a Seat.

 

Many of us have a favorite location in a favorite pew.

If you were not early, the service parts may be already started.

 

This is no time for the noise of mingling. Sh-h-h.

 

Get into the habit of Sabbath School Class. These small groups offer the best opportunity for mingling.

 

Share your joys, needs, thoughts, insights.

 

If you aren’t at Sabbath School, you’re missing out!

Get to Sabbath School (on time – or even early!) and make connections. (That’s what ‘mingling’ is all about.)

 

Sermon time...

The pastor will ask you to verbally be present: “Say Amen when you get there!”

And physically be present: “Does this make sense to you? (Raise your hand if so.)”

 

This is not mingling. Important, but not mingling.

 

Mingling takes you to interaction with others present.

 

Most of us have presets: Seek the same people. Comment about the week. Or the sermon. Ask “How are you?”

 

Get out of your comfort zone!

 

Seek someone (or more) that you don’t usually talk with.

 

Get some words flowing back and forth. Find out about this ‘new’ person’s life, needs, struggles, joys…

 

Did the sermon meet a felt need for them?

 

Did the sermon leave any questions?

 

For many of us getting out to the car is the target when church is over.

 

That definitely is a mingle-killer.

 

Encore is a great opportunity. It is an event that you can use to invite friends and neighbors to.

 

It is recorded of Jesus that He mingled with the people.

 

Be like Jesus.
