God is active in the world, transforming hearts and lives. When we serve, we have the opportunity and honor to come alongside what God is already doing.

You have been blessed with skills, talents, and gifts. We invite you to use these blessings to serve, whether that’s inside our church, out in our community, or somewhere in the world. Often we serve expecting to help others, but most of the time, the life transformed is our own. Whether you have a little or lots of time to serve, consider making the kind of impact that only you can make with God’s uniquely given gifts.

“I did not come to be served but to serve.”  Matthew 20:28
