"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot." Matthew 5:13
God has gifted us all with unique flavor - qualities and traits, gifts. As a mother of two boys, I'm always praying that my kids learn what those gifts are and, more importantly, find ways to use them to fulfill their life's purpose and to further the Kingdom. Do you spend time reflecting, searching, and asking God to reveal to you the unique gifts He has given you specifically? Do you cultivate them, look for ways to use them, and thank God for them? They are the reason you live and move and breathe. You will find purpose, motivation, and fulfillment when you learn to use them. I'm sure of it!
As Vessel gets closer to launching, many areas of service are opening. To recap what was discussed at the Vessel Launch Team meeting yesterday evening, below is a list areas of service and ways that you may want to use your gifts and talents. If you don't see anything here that goes along with your gifts, just let us know! If something here interests you, we would love to know that too! Take a look, pray about it, and let's see where we go from there.

These will be the greeters and logistics coordinators on Sunday mornings. They will be identifiable by a CREW T-Shirt. Primary duties include greeting people, answering questions, escorting people to where they need to go, answering questions about the church and service, making people feel welcome, helping with the offering during the service, making sure there are enough chairs.
