Global Ministries in Absarokee
On August 15, the Community Congregational Church of Absarokee was pleased to welcome Carol Shipley to our altar as pulpit supply in Meg Hatch's absence.
Carol is one of the UCC representative to the Common Global Ministries Board, and she is currently serving as co-chair. Global Ministries a the partnership of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church Disciples of Christ to serve in mission work together along with approximately 270 global partners.
Absarokee's Mission Committee had asked Carol to share her presentation about Global Ministries with the committee and the church. The Committee was able to visit with her before Sunday, giving Carol an opportunity to share specifics with us on the work of Global Ministries and providing us an opportunity to ask questions.
On Sunday, Carol carried most of the service, much as our normal pulpit supply, including prayers, offertory, and benediction. She even has a Children's Story ready – unfortunately we did not get to hear that as we did not have any children in attendance that day. Her presentation on her work with Global Ministries was excellent, informational, and uplifting. The photos she shared depicted a pilgrimage she made to the Dominican Republic on behalf of Global Ministries, and she provided other important information about the work we do with our partners in 70 countries across the globe.
In these times with so much need around the world, Global Ministries is able to step in quickly and provide targeted relief for many. We highly recommend inviting Carol to help your church with pulpit supply. It is well worth reaching out to her.
