How Can You Help?
Before we list off all of the opportunities to serve Christ in the church, it is first important to emphasize that you are already the hands of Christ in your world. The church exists to help you and others live out your calling as a child of God in the world. Whatever you are already doing to make this world a better place for others is a part of helping the church to be the body of Christ.
Here is a list of opportunities in which you can help make our faith community stronger:
Worship: participate in worship regularly–your voice helps others hear and praise God more robustly, more clearly. We value and depend on lay leaders to read the lessons, usher, serve communion, help lead the singing, videotape the service, and provide coffee fellowship.
Music: join a vocal choir, handbell choir, lead music for children’s Sunday School, play an instrument in worship.
