At leadership meeting, we were challenged to share what could be improved in the region. The challenge went beyond expectations and I really wanted to share the notes I was able to take. It was much needed and a good reminder to hold onto.
Make every effort to do God’s will.
Remember who you’re singing to and sing with all your heart.
Sing in your quiet times.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-15
Encourage and help one another.
2 Corinthians 8:7
Be excellent in everything.
Are we jumping into fellowship or jumping into our seats?
Always rejoice in God.
Never be lacking in zeal.
Forget what is behind, leave it at the door.
Strain forward and enjoy service.
Show the difference.
Not being encouraging causes sin.
Sincerely and genuinely try to encourage each other.
Give whole heartedly.
Let’s use our potential together, we’re all here for a reason.
The lost are looking for a light.
If you see someone sitting alone, go get them.
Our team is only as strong as the weakest member.
Strengthen each other.
You can’t understand what we have in Christ if you aren’t sharing your faith.
If you aren’t sharing, you’re missing a big part of your relationship with God.
Share every day and pray for people in your ministry.
Listening to leadership builds faith
Leadership is helping us to grow and follow God.
2 Corinthians 7:11

With more details there can be more understanding.

Remember why you have joy.
Share your stories, there’s a reason you’ve been through what you have.
Stop worrying and let God take control.
Quit judging and learn to forgive.
Reach out and love ALL your brothers and sisters.
Sit with different people and hang out during the week.
1 Corinthians 14:40
Be orderly in details.
Move to the front and motivate visitors.
This is the pattern of God.
How different are we from the world?
Use the Bible, get deep in the scriptures.
It’s your sword, use it!
We’re gonna have problems, address them with the Word.
Continue to do what we need to do.
We’re doing great, God’s going to work this all out.
Though all these great notes are only a portion of what we preached, I’m going to have a lot to go over for the week and apply to my life. I’m excited for how we can all respond to this and grow together! This is get another step in the wonderful journey. Thank you all for the inspiration! So glad to learn we aren’t alone in all of this.
