Top 10 Reasons to Serve

  1. Make a Difference

    Church departments, local ministries, and global partners need you. Participate in making an impact in our church, our community and the world to make it a better place to live, work, and play.

  1. God said to

    Some things in the Bible are not exactly clear, but this one is.

  2. Gain perspective

    It expands our worldview, and our kids’ worldview, to people and communities very different from our own, and this is a good thing.

  3. Grow in your faith

    Watch God do the unexplainable before your very eyes.

  4. Gain new skills

    Stretch yourself by trying your hand at coaching young children or writing an article for a newsletter. Or you could help a not-for-profit update its bylaws. Through volunteering, you polish your skills—or learn new ones.

  5. Relationships

    Service brings together diverse people. New friends are made and existing friendships are strengthened.

  6. Health

    Research shows that individuals who participate in service have better physical and mental health than those who do not. So exchange an hour of your workout for volunteering and you are set!

  7. Witness

    People might ask “Why?” And then you would get to tell them. Maybe even tell them about Jesus.

  8. Dudley

    Scott told you to. (Didn’t he?)

  9. Fun

    Because maybe you’ve always wanted to play dodgeball with 5th graders, but it’s a little awkward to invite yourself onto a playground near you.
