if there is a tornado watch or warning; does your church cancel services; does the office close if its in the middle of the week?
I have recently started to teach a class on sexuality to 7th grade girls at our church; I started with the material from Faith Alive, called sexuality;
I am looking for other available resources.
When i asked my girls "do you know what God says about sex?" they said no, and were very interested in the answer.
Rob, did your sermons discuss that question?

Posted in: Do You Worship and Work at the Same Place?
I am the office manager of the church that I attend; the benefit is that this feels more like a ministry than a job.
the downfall is that I oftenfeel that i do not get a sababth because I am working on Sundays also.
Thanks Melissa for your encouraging words!
