Serve in Our Community
Jesus came to serve... (Matthew 20:28). Serving helps us to grow as followers of Jesus and serving gets us tangled up in the work of Jesus right here right now. We hope you can find a place where you will be challenged, where your gifts and passions intersect with a need, and where you will encounter our living God.
Do Less. Go Deeper.
As you consider ways that you can serve consider focusing on a few things so that you can engage those things with a little bit more time and energy. Too often, as Christians, we over-work ourselves by committing to too many things. This only results in burn-out, lack of joy, shallow engagement, and less opportunities for others to get involved. So as you pray about where you will serve consider saying "NO" so that you can joyfully say "YES."
