SERVICE WITHIN OUR WALLS
God has given each of us gifts and strengths to use in ministry. Paul describes the church as a body with each part interdependent of the other (1 Corinthians 12). Peter tells us that when we serve using our gifts we are administering God’s grace in its various forms (1 Peter 4:10). Jesus promises us the Holy Spirit and said that he has called us for the purposes of bearing lasting fruit (John 15:16).
Some of the ways we serve in the church is through common service (e.g. groups hosting us on Sunday mornings or taking turns with Celebration Sunday lunch). Sometimes we do this as individuals in ways that no one knows about (Matthew 6:3). Some of the service we do is with others in various ministry teams.
Check out the opportunities for service below and see if God is calling you to step up and use your gifts in the church.
