Cleaning Ministry

By Garrett Glende

As we continue to transition into our new church building, many new opportunities have been made available for those eager to serve God. One of these new ministries is not for the faint of heart or the weak-stomached. However, it is open to anyone who loves God and wishes to serve the church by lending a helping hand! Now that we’ve moved from the school in Scripps Ranch to our own building in Sorrento Valley, we face the responsibility of having to clean and maintain the facility on our own. You might have noticed that the bathrooms (especially the men’s) aren’t quite as offending to the senses as before and that the carpet seems to be miraculously devoid of stains (for now). This is all thanks to our wonderful new cleaning ministry led by its faithful servant, Simon Huang.

Every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday night a group of LBCers can be seen vacuuming, scrubbing, mopping, washing, wiping, and serving. The team works diligently to make sure that the church is tidy and presentable for the next time it will be used. Every night the leader of the group makes sure that the team is focused on serving God with a pure heart, wishing to glorify Him even through scrubbing toilets and wiping down sinks. Even though it’s a very simple job and may not get a lot of face time, the cleaning ministry is a vital part of the church. Randy Tsuchiyama, who leads the Wednesday night crew, says that “it’s cool to see people wanting to serve in something simple. It’s really encouraging just seeing people willing to serve by doing something that’s not glamorous at all.”

The cleaning ministry is in need of anyone who is willing to sacrifice their nights to get together and serve God. If you’re interested in joining, please contact Simon Huang.
