Service for Christ or serving others isn’t a drag, but a great privilege, when you do it “heartily as unto the Lord” (Col 3:23,24) in the strength and ability that He gives. As a matter of fact you can’t do other than serve because the “love of Christ urges us on” (2 Cor 5:14).
There are many ways in which the BPPC community can, and does serve. During the Church service itself, and immediately afterwards, there are many roles which need to be undertaken:
The music team works hard to provide excellent music to accompany the worship of God. This includes the organist, the pianist, the guitarist, singers, and at times even a flautist. These hard working people selflessly lead the congregation in singing to the Lord. Of course they have to practise as well, so that there are no hitches during the services.
Without the multimedia team the church services would ground to a halt. This dedicated team deals with the audio and visual sides of things, including, but not limited to all aspects of the sound system, words for songs, Bible readings, pictures, and videos.
Then they patiently record all teaching from the pulpit so that friends and members can listen again online or, after downloading the messages, in the quietness of their own homes.
There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea, a biscuit, and a good conversation after a church service. Yet, without the hard work of the morning tea team there would be no tea, no biscuits, and by extension, much less fellowship.
Behind the scenes there’s lot of work going on. Without these “martyrs of monotony” functioning behind the scenes little would be accomplished. Sometimes a job seems small, yet often it’s the small things that make any enterprise progress and produce.
Our church buildings and grounds are like our “home” and need the same kind of tender, loving care that we give there. There’s always a weed to pull out, a lovely plant to plant, a dripping tap to fix – just the things you do at home. Feel free to help out in this important ministry.
