Man I’m glad I found this. Is it okay to post stuff if I don’t attend Life Church? Hope so.
Well, the enemy is on the prowl and he wants me to jump ship on my church. I go to a church where they really center on family and kids.
This was a double whammy for me because I have neither. Long story short I worked really hard at meeting church members and staff, but right when I felt at home the enemy attacked.
He would say that no one liked me because I didn’t have a family or kids. It was extremely tough. It really started getting worse when I realized that the Bible study classes seemed more like a social outlet than a day of rest with the Lord or people would always want to meet other single people. More for the dating aspect I think. That’s fine and all, it just wasn’t always Christ centered. I just want JESUS
Sorry long one hear......
After much prayer, thankfully God stepped in and spoke life and courage into my heart and I was revived.
I’m currently serving in Kids Ministry and at first I was pumped because God had really been putting this on my heart. I was serving in Adult Bible Studies BEFORE.
A little about me. I’m an only child and I went through many divorces with my parents. Both my parents are single now, but they each had 2-3 marriages over my younger years. I grew up quickly, so I pretty much knew life at a young age.
Anyways, that’s why I joined Kids Ministry, so that I could always be an ear for any kid that’s going through a tough time at home.
Of course, things were awesome. Volunteered for my first VBS. Everything was great, I’m always up at the church helping when needed during the week and then teaching 3rd grade on Sundays.
Here’s where I just don’t know how to read others, so I could use your help please.
Big picture—- always wanting church to succeed and will help in whatever way I can.
After VBS it’s like I became a ghost to the staff and the Kids Director barked at me for taking a breather during tear down of VBS. First time that happened and we are close. She never apologized and really hasn’t talked to me since. The family pastor hasn’t said much to me either and that’s tough, because they both chose me to teach in Kids Ministry.
So of course hear comes the enemy , saying they are just using me to get things done and they don’t want to have fellowship with me.
I just don’t get it.
So know I’m stuck in a situation where my adult community is pretty much non exsistent and the adults that teach in Kids, do t really communicate.
I’m still liking it because the kids are great.
Service on the other hand is getting bad. I feel like the pastor is really telling the members what they want to hear and not preaching the WORD appropriately.
I’m sorry it’s so long, but any thoughts would be much appreciated.
