Thank you for taking a few minutes to see what is going on in the serve life of RezDT!

There is intentionally repeated material here as the previous month's Serve Update apparently wasn't published.

The generosity of our congregation never ceases to amaze! Thank you to all who participated in SO many ways. We wrap up our season of generosity with Wendell Phillips Joy Parties on Friday 12/20 (It's not too late to volunteer), December's Serve Saturday (details in links above), and with an opportunity to deliver meals to home bound people on Christmas day.

Twenty-five leaders gathered on Jan 5 to celebrate, fellowship and set some goals for the year ahead. Several liaisons retired from their duties and the Lord has blessed us with several new leaders to help bring new ideas and energy to serving the community. Remember to thank a liaison anytime you can, they truly make the wheels turn for our serving programs out of RezDT. After celebrating our leaders, we celebrated some successful efforts. Our Backpack ministry continued to grow with participation from families with young children or mobility issues who can't as easily get out into the community. We celebrated the March Madness Serve Saturday where 350 people gathered to serve on one day. We also celebrated the increase in participation month over month! This led to a conversation about these goals:
Do any of these resonate with you? Would you like to add your gifts to the effort? Contact me at Patrick.McLauglin@cor.org to find a time to chat.

This month I'd like to honor the work and gifts of Mark McCall. You can find Mark volunteering for just about every opportunity he can find. He helps a LOT with our Wendell Phillips partnership through tutoring, delivering beds, packaging hunger backpacks, and then serving on the team that delivers them the school each Friday. Mark truly has a servants heart and I appreciate his leadership through service. Thank you Mark for who you have let the Lord make you and all you do with it!
I also hope you've enjoyed getting to know what's going on in the Serve life of RezDT! Don't hesitate to reach out anytime you have questions, concerns, or just need a listening ear. Email Patrick.Mclaughlin@cor.org or call 816-979-1344.
