Remember to Contact Your Minister:

1. WHEN YOU ARE FACING A SERIOUS PROBLEM
Most Ministers have been trained to help people with their personal, family and other problems.
The important judgment of a spiritual leader,
together with his prayers for Divine guidance, will enable you to face your problems with
confidence. Don't allow your problem to get too big for
you.

2. WHEN SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN THE CHURCH
You constantly meet young people and adults who are in your community, and others who have not
united with the local church. Put in a good
word for your church and tell your Pastor about the prospective members.

3. WHEN THERE IS AN ILLNESS
Your Minister is as near as your telephone. His presence, counsel and prayer will be helpful. Your
Pastor will appreciate your phone call when
you, your loved one or friend is sick or going to the hospital.

4. WHEN THERE IS DEATH
Your Minister should be notified when there is a death in the family. He can comfort and counsel
you or your family at this difficult time.

5. WHEN YOU MUST MAKE AN IMPORTANT DECISION
If you are a young person and face a decision about going to college, arranging your course of study,
or choosing your life work,
make an appointment to see your Minister. The viewpoint of your spiritual advisor should be
considered.

6. WHEN THERE IS A WEDDING
  Your Pastor should be consulted before the Wedding day is set. Since you undoubtedly drive to
have one or more conferences
with your Minister, it is advisable to contact him well in advance of the Wedding.

7. WHEN SOMEONE DESIRES TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN
Happy, indeed, is the Pastor who is asked to talk with someone desiring to become a Christian. Tell
your Minister
about friends of yours who are interested in knowing more about the Christian faith.
