Staff offices. Lots of offices, some cubicles, a nice conference room. A coffee machine and a few kitchenettes. A couple of copiers and lots of computers. You’ve seen one office you’ve seen them all, right?
But without offices to work out of, none of the other ministries would exist let alone thrive. Sermons need planned. Youth retreats need outlined. Budgets for maintenance and snow removal need prepared… all the “business” of the church happens back here.
During the week our choir practices in this area too as they prepare for Sunday’s services, and during the Sunday services, our security team has offices in this space that allow them to keep us safe.
But even more happens here! Our Care Pastors each provide counseling for up to 20 people every month out of these offices. They offer free support for addictions, mental health, marriage support and more for people of all ages. It’s good to remember this the next time you walk by and start to think, “Oh, those are just the offices.” They’re much more.
