Where Can I Serve?
Loving God - loving people
Being intentional about loving God means being intentional about loving others.
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.” Philippians 2:5-7
We have a number of ministries through which you can serve within the church family and within the community around us. In addition, these service opportunities can be great opportunities for you to get to know others in the church better.
These opportunities are the most common, but not the only ways you can serve. We are always open to new ways to serve the church and our community. Contact the Director of Outreach for more information.
