Serve

Serving is a great way to get connected with others and it an important aspect to your spiritual growth.  

So, when you’re ready, there’s always an outlet for your talents - from playing the guitar to using a hammer, running a video camera to stuffing envelopes - your effort will help make a difference in the lives of others!

 

To help you get started, we want to learn a little more about you.  Please take a few minutes and complete this Team Member Form

Once complete, we'll follow up with you to help you better understand all of the options available and get you connected with that ministry's leader.
