Lent: Assist in setting up the worship service

About two months into my new-found relationship with God, I arrived early to the New Testament Church in Tampa, Florida and found the pastor, Rev. Charles Strickland, vacuuming the church. My entrance to ministry
was as simple as volunteering to vacuum before the Sunday evening service. This released the pastor to pray and become more prepared for the service
to come. 

It is easy to become active in any congregation if you don't mind serving. It was also a very happy and fulfilling time. I discovered you can pray while vacuuming and took this discipline to work with me. At that time I was the lead custodian of a 60,000 sq. ft. building and my specialty was floors. I was "forced", or "blessed" to have to pay my own way to higher education, and my job became not only a mission field, but also an opportunity to pray.

Lent activity:
Volunteer to assist in setting up for worship service.
