SHINE: A special light, a special love Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:35-38
Jesus’ ministry must have been amazing to watch. He had the power to heal people. He could immediately change someone’s life with a touch of his hand.
He has not given us that power today. If we had that power there would be no need for doctors and hospitals. There would be no need for ESP (Extra Special People).
But there is a need. We might not be able to immediately heal these precious kids, but we can love them and serve them and their families.
To that end we want to announce the beginning of a special class that will begin on September 15th. The class will be for kids that attend ESP and other kids who face those same challenges. Joe and Laura Whitaker will be leading this ministry.
This ministry will allow the parents of these kids the opportunity to worship God together while their child is being taught in a class designed for them. We cannot heal them as Jesus did, but we can love them like He did.
WE NEED YOU! This class is for any church member who has a spark of desire to serve children with special needs and their families. We need members who want to help with the kids and members who will be there to reach out to the families. For more information email: Sunday, September 8th, 5-7 pm: Training for all interested.
