Have you been looking for a place for God to use you at TRBC but you can’t because your time is limited, or you are homebound, or you are on-call all the time. One exciting opportunity for you to serve in is on our Welcome Calling team. Welcome Callers make a first phone contact with those who visit TRBC on the weekends, primarily thanking for the visit and inviting folk to come back. This is something you could do on your own time schedule, during the day or during the evening. It is simple, instantly rewarding and you can make lots of new friends. You determine how many calls you will make and you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.
On any given Sunday morning on our campus, it can be EXTREMELY difficult to find a parking space. That is a good problem to have because it means that there are a lot of people hearing the Gospel being presented. It is a bad problem because…well, there is no space to park your car!!
There are over 300 spaces at the Lahaye Ice Center that are not being used effectively on a Sunday.
Starting last Sunday, TRBC Guest Services has started running shuttles from that lot to the front of the church. There is also free coffee and donuts available to anyone that uses this service.
We need people to help drive these shuttles.
If you have a valid Virginia CDL drivers license and are wanting to team-up to serve in our church, we have a place for you. We start running the shuttle at 8:15am and conclude at 1pm. We are needing approximately 10-12 drivers that can rotate in serving on a monthly basis.
If you can assist for only an hour on a Sunday, that would help as well. All that you need to do is to send an email to Jay Rebsamen by clicking here.
Thanks in advance for your help!
At Thomas Road, we believe that God has designed each of us with a unique S.H.A.P.E. Our S.H.A.P.E. is the combination of traits that defines who we are. Our S.H.A.P.E. also determines where our best ministry “fit” will be.
We will be most effective and fulfilled in ministry when we use our Spiritual Gifts and Abilities in the area of our Heart’s desire in a way that best expresses our Personality and Experiences. Therefore, gaining an understanding of our individual, God-given S.H.A.P.E. is vital for experiencing success and fulfillment in ministry.
