Serve

Use Your Gifts

Serving is a natural part of belonging to a church family. It's an opportunity to use time, effort, and abilities to help others experience the hope of Jesus. And in the process, you'll develop a greater connectedness to the other people in the church.

Why We Serve

We serve because Jesus served us (Mark 10:45). Even though He is God, He gladly chose the role of a servant (Philippians 2:5-7) and came to rescue us from a hopeless future (Jeremiah 29:11). He is the example of a life devoted to serving others (John 13:12-15).

In following Jesus' example, we serve to:

  1. Meet the needs of our church: We consider it a privilege to work together, share the load, and strive to care for one another using our gifts freely (1 Corinthians 12:12-27). 
  2. Make disciples: We look for opportunities to serve those outside of the church as a means of sharing hope with those who haven't experienced it (Isaiah 58:10).

How We Serve

In the Bible, we are encouraged to serve:

  • sacrificially (John 15:13)
  • intentionally (Colossians 3:23)
  • practically (James 2:14-18)
  • impartially (James 2:1-7)
  • humbly (Romans 12:3)
  • faithfully (1 Peter 4:10)

TEAMS

We believe that serving is better when we do it together. Teams are groups of people with a common passion and common goal. Below is a list of our current teams with a brief description of what they do:

  • SETUP / TEARDOWN: This team sets up the YMCA for the church to gather and tears everything down when we're done.
  • HOSPITALITY: This team of greeters and ushers makes a great first impression and helps everyone feel welcome.
  • KIDS: This team checks-in, cares for and teaches kids about Jesus. A background check is required to serve on this team.
  • SAFETY: This team keeps people safe and responds to emergency situations. A background check is required to serve on this team.
  • BAND: This team of musicians and vocalists leads people in worship through song. An audition is required to serve on this team.
