Sharing God's Love

Last night at the Leadership Christmas Party, our speaker, Dr. Bert Downs, asked us what we did this year to show God's love, so that others would know who He is and what He has done for them. Being tired, I couldn't call much to mind, although I know God has been busy and we have been busy trying to keep up with Him.

This morning I read Psalm 105. It reminded me that God wants us to focus on what He has done, share it, and rejoice over it.

Here are verses 1-5.

Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name;
make known among the nations what He has done.
Sing to Him, sing praise to Him;
tell of all His wonderful acts.
Glory in His holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
Look to the LORD and His strength;
seek His face always.
Remember the wonders He has done,
His miracles, and the judgments He pronounced

God is doing so much in and through the people at El Camino so that those we come into contact with will have an opportunity to know who He is and how much He loves them.

Here are a few things that came to my mind this morning. I pray that through all these events and ministries, God's love has been made known to others.

*He brought more teachers and students to our English as a Second Language ministry, Friendship International
*He brought strong, godly, motivated, skilled leaders for our Missions Fellowship group and Missions Committee
*He is growing our leaders to lead with wisdom, enthusiasm, energy, excellence and efficiency
*He has brought strong, growing leaders for our Middle Schoolers. They are investing in them, and in turn the students are reaching out to their unchurched friends.
*He has brought a lot of volunteers to staff the ministries He has called us to, such as Sunday School,media,facility upkeep,music,youth,etc.
*God has brought godly, dedicated leaders for our Elective and Small Group ministries
*God continues to strengthen and unify our Ministry Leadership Team and staff
*God continues to give us His vision for ways to reach out to our friends and community...Good News Club Family Game Night, Youth Pie Nights, Father Daughter Dinner Date, Mother Daughter Tea Party, Mud Bowl, J Walk BBQ, Praise in the Park, Community Christmas Dinner...

What ways have you seen God working this year at El Camino so others will know the love of God?
