Who are the helpers at church
When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it  (Gal 6:10:

Introduction–Some years ago, we were all glued to our TV’s because two boys were kidnapped.  Then they were found . Ben (4days old) and Shawn (4 ½ years old) were kidnapped by a man and the police found them yesterday. Everyone is said that a young teenager named Mitchell was the key to finding the boys because he was willing to help his friend in identifying a truck. We are all to be helpers for others.  Have a member read, Galatians 6:10.

  1. The story of the first men who were chosen to be helpers in the church.
  2. The church would come together, bring their food and eat their meals together. The Jewish men were helping their older family members who were women to have food.
  3. The non-Jewish women did not have a family member to help them so they were not getting food.
  4. They complained and the Apostles decided they could not wait on the table but they would choose men who could help these women get the food they needed.

All of us need help at certain times in our lives.

  1. The Lord send helpers to the church because there were older women who were not being given the food they needed.
  2. Last week we had a funeral for my brother-in-law and it was sad but wonderful because we were able to spend time together and be with the family.  We were all helping each other.  But there were some people who were doing more than their share.
  3. These men and woman and boys and girls were happy to be able to help.
  4. God has designated certain men and women who love helping.

There are other people who are better at studying and planning for the church.  We all have a special place in the church.

  1. I am usually better at planning and studying and sharing the gospel.
  2. Our teachers are all gifted in sharing God’s word with you.
  3. There are some of us who really want to be helpers.  They take up the money and help with the chairs.

All of us are important to the Lord and to the work of the Lord.  We need all of God’s people to work together and share the gifts that God has given to them.
