Minister's Message

Happy Spring!

   As I sit writing this today, it is 30 degrees outside and ice is on the trees.  Yet I know that in a short time I am going to be seeing daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths breaking through the earth towards the sun and blossoming, sharing their beauty!  Aaahhhhh, I love Spring!

   Also as I sit here today, we are just a few days away from our Annual Board Retreat.  Although we call it a retreat, we work from 9am to 5pm both Friday and Saturday discussing all aspects of our ministry.  Your Board Members take a day of vacation from work to attend this retreat!  Now that is dedication!

   Some of the things that have manifested out of recent Board Retreats are as follows: 

We are excited about our Spirit Groups, spear-headed by John Braucher and John Russ.  It is wonderful to have so many opportunities for spiritual unfoldment available to us.  

   Also, coming up soon is our Second Annual Planet Unity Earth Day Celebration!  You will find more about this event in this issue of Wings.  This is a fantastic opportunity to be in service to both Unity of Springfield and our surrounding communities.  Sign up to volunteer for this very important event. 

   One of our focuses is Community Outreach.  I know that there are many of you that have a heart for outreach and I ask you to prayerfully consider either being a Team Leader or a Co-Team Leader for this aspect of our Ministry.  If you have ideas for Outreach, please contact Amy Burnett, our Board Liaison for Outreach. 

   Our Junior Sunday School (JSS) is taking shape as we celebrate having our space again!  Thank you to everyone who has donated items and helped with organizing the area.  You will have an opportunity to purchase items needed for the JSS soon through Amazon. 

   We are working on getting our version of a ‘Coffee Bar’ going.  If you enjoy coffee and people, please consider volunteering your time on a Sunday morning to serve coffee.  You can do it once a month or as often as you like.  Please contact Michelle Johnson, our Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested. 

   I am so excited about all the things happening here at Unity of Springfield.   Please know that none of this is possible without YOU!  Thank you for your continued support of our Ministry through your time, talent and treasure!

 

With Great Love,

Sue Baggett-Spears
Minister, Unity of Springfield
