Our OnBoard Party is only 2 weeks away, and we are still excited about people who get involved at Connexus! We think we have some of the best teams of volunteers out there, and we can’t wait to add you! Today we are happy to introduce you to Jim and Corine!
Our family came to Connexus when we launched in 2007. We believed in the mission so strongly that we were willing to venture into a new church format in order to help bring others in our community who did not have a church family, to a church that was willing to be innovative and open to the culture in our communities. The Christian message does not change but the way we present it needs to be open to change.
We are so glad Jim and Corine believe in and participate in our mission; to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. Together, they are part of this mission by helping to create a welcoming environment for every guest who walks through our doors.
[We] both serve on the Guest Services team and it is very exciting and rewarding to meet new people and also to welcome those others who come each week. It is a great opportunity to be involved and to share our faith in a limited way. A warm smile and an encouraging word helps new people feel like they are welcome and can help them to feel more comfortable in an unknown environment.
This is exactly right! Making people feel welcome is the first step in making sure people feel comfortable enough to ask questions and explore faith in Jesus.
Corine shares how her faith has personally grown too!
I am encouraged in my faith when I see newcomers return often and many who eventually become regular attenders. It is quite exciting to hear stories from those who come and so often feel that the message was just right for them on that day. Obviously God’s hand is upon them and the Holy Spirit is evident in our midst. Seeing the baptism of someone that we greeted for the first time one Sunday morning months before is encouraging, exciting and a blessing.
Seeing positive results of your participation in our mission of leading people into a relationship with Jesus is the most rewarding experience of all.
Connexus is an exciting church in which to be involved. When we witness life change that didn’t seem possible a short time ago it is a blessing and an encouragement to continue in this mission. It is also very exciting to see all the young families that are coming out each week and to talk to the many volunteers in all areas that make this “church in a Movie Theatre” work so well.
We couldn’t be happier that Corine and her husband choose to be involved here at Connexus. They urge you to get on board and serve, too!
Serving is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in the work of Connexus. There is a sense of belonging when you serve and also satisfaction being a volunteer. Sharing our skills in whatever area we are interested in is a way to grow our faith and give back to a God who has provided us with so many blessings. We are very thankful to be part of Connexus and to be able to serve others.
If you are curious about how you can share your time and ability at Connexus, please join us for our On Board Pary on June 6th at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm!). We would love to help you find an area that you’ll fit perfectly in. Just click on the link below to RSVP!
