Calm Some Storms

Hey there Gloria Dei! Pastor Chris, here, filling in for Pastor Tim with this Friday Followings. I hope you’re having a great week and looking forward to the weekend. If you’re around in Sioux Falls this weekend, I hope you can come and join us in worship! If not, please join us online! We’ve worked really hard to provide a great online worship experience on our website: https://www.gloriadei-sd.org/live

As you might know, we’re in a new preaching series titled “Do You Believe in Miracles?” and this weekend we’re into the New Testament with the story of Jesus calming the stormy sea. What a powerful testament to the way the Lord calms not only real storms, but all the storms in our lives.

Lots of us have faced metaphorical storms in our lives, storms that have suddenly and swiftly changed our lives forever. For some people, storms are every day. The last few times I’ve served with the Gloria Dei Mobile Hair Salon I’ve had some conversations with guests about their “stormy” lives. Many of them getting out of prison, working on finding work, trying to make ends meet, the “stormy” stories are endless, particularly for those who are in need. It’s a fascinating and powerfully impactful ministry.

There is nothing quite like having the dignity of a fresh haircut to change your perspective in life. And there is nothing quite as good as experiencing the grace of God and knowing that you are made in God’s image. Our Mobile Salon does just that.

I’m so thankful for all the volunteers who have made this ministry happen and it’s so exciting to share pictures and stories of the ministry happening. Check out our Facebook page or Instagram account for those pictures and stories.

If you’ve been thinking about how you could help with the Mobile Salon, but maybe just don’t have the time right now, I have an easy request for help from you! Our team is looking to spread the word about this great serving opportunity to as many hair stylists in the Sioux Falls area as we can. The stylists we have had serve with us are positively impacted just as much as our guests.

The next time you sit down in the salon chair to get your hair cut or done, would you mind telling your stylist about the Mobile Salon ministry? We’ve made it easy for them to get to know the ministry and sign up to serve with us. All they have to do is go to this link to find out more - https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508044AABA72BAAF85-volunteer

Perhaps together we can help calm some storms for some people in our community as we seek to do this work together in the name of Jesus. If you have questions, please let me know!

Let’s GO, Gloria Dei!
Pastor Chris
