Meet GT's iServe Superstars!
Glad Tidings Church is taking this opportunity to honor those who labor among us! We appreciate your dedicated service to the Lord.
The iServe Superstar this week is Louise Powell!
Age is never a factor for Mrs. Louise Powell when it comes to servanthood. Being an integral part of the missions team every year is only one ministry that Mrs. Powell is involved with. She travels each year to participate in short-term missions abroad. Occasionally someone on the team will try to relieve her of a task she is involved in performing and she will promptly tell them “this is my job, go find your own job to do.” She is a prayer warrior, and even at 89 years old, does physical labor right along other team members to accomplish our goal. She once shared with me one of the scriptures that she has built her life upon; 2 Cor. 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.” Thank you Mrs. Louise for being such an example of servanthood at its finest! We love you.

We want to hear from you! Glad Tidings Church has so many awesome volunteers who cheerfully serve. You'll find them in every ministry; they are in the pews, the parking lot, and often behind the scenes. We want to recognize these special people, and we need your help. Who do you think should be our next iServe Superstar? Click here to vote...
Compassion Takes Action
By James Reine, Youth Pastor
My wife truly inspires me to be better. She has such a passion to reach hurting people that it motivates me. For her, it’s beyond feeling. I, on the other hand, am not naturally that way. I want to help people and go the extra mile but I get so caught up in the habit of, “I can’t help you but I can pray for you.” Subconsciously, misusing the “silver and gold have I none” bit. Peter and John actually meant what they were saying, whereas I have a twenty stashed in my wallet, but am sometimes unwilling to release it.
I feel sympathy but my sympathy doesn’t naturally evolve into compassion.
I have grown but I am still not where I would like to be. My love significantly falls short of the love of God. I think we are all in the same boat. When you think about what his love has actually done for you, it is seemingly impossible to represent that love to people unaware. One can assume that we shouldn’t even attempt to display Christlike love, since our effort falls so short. But that isn’t what God intended. He knows we fall short. He knows that our love is merely a shade of the magnitude of his love. He knows this, but he still expects and enables us to love beyond feeling. To love with our hands not just our hearts. To move beyond noticing, caring, and feeling and into doing.
