Our Christian work is to love. Actively loving the world means sharing the gospel in word and deed. Neither can be separated from the other for either to be effective. The purpose of learning to gather and care for one another is to become more others focused. This life is not about us…we must learn to live differently.
Work in Love with Us
We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
“But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all.”
This is why we serve; this is why we call it the Serve Team.
If you are interested in joining along side our serve team to better aid the ministry and have a voice in the work and events of the semester, let us know by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
