Why Volunteer?

God equips us for this service…

He doesn’t ask us to do things alone. He gives each of us different abilities, skills, and experiences to use according to His plan.

“The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ…Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”—1Corinthians 12:12, 27
God made us to be part of a community…
In serving, we grow in relationship with fellow Christians. We develop new friendships and deepen old ones.

“Love your neighbor as yourself.” —Matthew 22:39

We are able to volunteer in different ways depending on our life stage. For example, someone busy raising a family may be looking for opportunities that can include children, but only require short time commitments. Someone who is retired and has experience serving in local hands-on mission work might be ready to join an international mission team. Some may want to use work skills and experience to help the church. And others may find volunteering a good way to develop new skills and experience. It is good to explore new volunteer opportunities.

It is important that, as volunteers, we be engaged in ministry that fulfills each of our needs for involvement and commitment. We should only volunteer in those areas about which we are impassioned, excited, and committed.
Please use the form available on Sundays to indicate any area that you would like more information on.
