R3 and Kingdom Workers

                                                 

Kingdom Workers is a team of retired volunteers who generously give their time and talents to help churches.
We have applied and been accepted to be a SHORT TERM PROJECT for Volunteer Support in 2022. 
We will be receiving a team Jan 17 through Feb 27 of 2022. As a church we have the opportunity to host this great group of volunteers with lunch and snacks on their workdays Tues through Saturday. We also have the opportunity to work together with them on Saturdays with a joint congregational workday (anyone can help anytime if you have extra time). They will be staying in RV’s on the church property. We are excited to have them joining our fellowship for a few weeks (some might stay for different periods of time) and getting to know them!

A special note to Kingdom Worker Volunteers… Thank you for considering this mission project! We are so excited to have you here in Texas! We are also very thankful for your willingness to serve and help! Your time, efforts and contributions we pray, will be a great blessing! When you arrive you will find a very beautiful and nice traditional church. Because of our mission, the goal is to create a church space that is that is more relaxed, contemporary and relational. There are many reasons for this, that have been studied, reflected on and prayed about in the past 5 years and in greater detail in 2021. While we are stepping out in faith, we have already seen blessing and positive shifts happening. These changes are sometimes hard for us as well, and we are honored to have you walk with us in faith, constantly praying that God would guide and direct our path so that we stay on mission to share Christ in a timeless and relevant way.
