This month’s servant spotlight is on Jennie Repotski who serves regularly with the BSM, JAM, Tuesday Worship, and Worship Support Ministry Teams. She also helps out with projects lead by the Care, Outreach, and Children’s Ministry Teams. If you have ever been to an event that requires registration or checking-in, then you have seen Jennie in action.
How do you serve in the church family and the community?
One month I set up communion trays. I serve at the registration tables for JAM, BSM, and VBS. I have helped with updates for the directory, I also help with greeting for blood drives and Feeding America Trucks. I am also starting to learn how to run the audio/visual system. I serve communion once a month. In the community, I try to volunteer at any event I can to help people enjoy the events.
Why do you serve?
I serve because I like meeting others and their needs.
What is your favorite part about serving?
My favorite part about serving is making a difference to someone and seeing them get excited about it.
What have you learned from serving other?
Something I have learned is that I have a pretty good life. I could be worse off than I am.
What would you say to someone who is considering serving in a new way?
If you are interested in serving, I say try it. You may actually like to do it. You can always try it out and if it doesn’t work out, try something else. Getting out there is good way to learn more about serving.
