Here we are at the end of my first week of work and I LOVE it! I've had the best week. It's so good to feel productive with something other that how many loads of laundry you can wash, dry, fold and put way!
This week I've learned to produce, print and fold the Sunday worship bulletins, I learned how to maintain our pastors library (don't laugh, it's harder than it sounds), I learned to enter Sunday School attendance into the computer. And the hardest task I've been given is to organize BT's (this is how pastor will be referred to from here forward) cd collection. You don't understand, our sound guys record his sermons every Sunday morning and every Sunday night. He tapes his Sunday School class for those of us who teach other classes, and he's on 2 or 3 cd lists (where he gets cd's once a month from other pastors or evangelist) SO when he opened the double doors of the cabinet where the cds "live" there must be 1000 cds just thrown into the bottom of the cabinet. So, my task you ask, organize them and figure out some way to store them and catalog them so we know what's there. Ummm yeah! So, that is the task I shall work on next week while he's attending the Ga. Baptist Convention on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday along with producing the bulletin for the next Sunday. YAY, finally a job with a challenge.
I'd love to show you pictures of my office, except I don't have one yet. I'm just bouncing from place to place until we can figure out where my office will be. We don't have enough room in the "office" area for everyone and our new building, where all the children's ministry staff is going, will not be done until the first of January at the earliest, so I'm homeless. Once I get an office I'll take pictures to share with everyone. Well, I vowed that I'd use my 1/2 day off on Fridays for something useful, so I guess I should go pay bills or do laundry or something, right?!?!
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
