We serve as an act of worship. We serve to build community.
Volunteering to serve for the local church and within the local community is at the heart of the Gospel. When we serve, we are taking on the persona and and character of Jesus, who told his disciples that he came not to be served, but to serve. Serving in ministry makes us more like Jesus. Search your heart and read through the serving opportunities to find a team you’d love to be committed to.
Here are some phrases you’ll come across in your search and what they mean:
