What You Focus on Grows by Kate Godfrey (Continued from page 3)

In the last decade, we have spent nearly half a million dollars on adult spaces. We installed an elevator, restored the Sanctuary, and renovated the Common Room, roughly $442,000. Please go spend some time in the spaces we have set aside for our children. How do you feel in there? West Omaha churches attract families with state of the art facilities which are colorful and filled with child-centered activities and artwork. How do our spaces compare, right now, in the year 2012? Are we doing everything we can to make children (and their parents) welcome in our congregation? If not, what steps can we make, right now, to change that? I look forward to hearing from you. This isn’t a complacent congregation—this is a push-up-your-sleeves-and-fix-it congregation! So, what do you want to do? With love, Kate Godfrey

The SMT Needs Your Help A note from your Senior Ministry Team

Over the last three months, your Senior Ministry Team (SMT) has been working to listen to our church’s team leaders and community members to better understand how the SMT can serve and empower our existing teams. We have also been working to find leaders for a few programs that have recently been without structure. Last month you were asked to consider how you might help sustain the church’s programs financially. Now we want to ask each of you to consider how you might help us fill our program teams and vacant leadership positions so that we can continue moving the church forward. Are you willing to be involved in a team or serve as a leader in the ministry team? If so, would you do us a favor and reach out so that we can work towards filling the vacancies we currently have available? If you are interested in learning more about the teams and leadership positions, please contact us at seniorministryteam@firstuuomaha.org. Thank you for continuing to make our church an amazing place to be in community with each other. With Appreciation, Kate Godfrey, Walt Jesteadt, Jack Perry, and Ben Wallace
