At the beginning of March, John Friesen organized a training session for the hosting ministry. It was encouraging to see individuals attend who are committed to serving as an usher and/or greeter. We really value intentional training for each of our ministries and consider it beneficial for anyone serving at Deer Run Church.
Our LifeGroup ministry is constantly growing and developing. At Deer Run Church, we see the need for everyone to be in a LifeGroup and encourage people to get involved in one. On January 13, Pastor Quentin Unger organized a celebration social for everyone who is in a LifeGroup. We came to the conclusion from this event that our LifeGroups can put together an impressive potluck spread. Everyone was able to enjoy food with the company of their LifeGroup, which was followed by a time for evaluation for each group to discuss the vision and purpose of their group. It was very life-giving and encouraging.
