Serve

I'm Interested in Serving

Are you willing and hungry to serve?

We all have been given gifts by God to serve our church family. We can help you figure out what those are and how best to use them. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an outgoing, energetic personality or you prefer to do things ‘behind the scenes’ out of the public eye; we can help get you plugged in.
