Serve

As Christians, we are called to serve as the hands and feet of Christ.  We serve within the church walls as well as beyond.

As we make ministries with children and their families a higher priority, do you have an hour or two per month to volunteer in the nursery?

 

Mission (sharing God’s love outside of ourselves): local ministries; regional and international mission teams.

Worship (glorifying God as the gathered community of faith): read scripture, ASL interpretation, audio-visual support, children’s message, acolyte (candle lighter), crucifer (cross bearer), usher, decorating, altar guild.

Care (sharing God’s love with those in need): Community Care Ministers, ride service for elderly.
