Get Involved at CenterPoint


Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. ~~1 Peter 4:10

Why Should I Serve?  Serving is one of the ways that we can express our love and thanks for all the things God has done for us. By serving, we become more Christ-like. In addition, it is a great way to meet people and become connected with others who share your particular passion. Serving will make your church feel like a place you belong.

What Do I Need to Serve?  The first thing is a willing heart. Then be willing to commit some of your time, whether it is a few hours a month or a few hours a week. The time you spend serving our God and serving others will be some of the best time you can spend.

How Do I Serve?  There are many areas of ministry that are in need of a few helping hands to keep that ministry going. If you are interested in volunteering, there are many opportunities listed below. To aid your decision, we recommend taking the Spiritual Gifts Inventory by clicking here. For more information, click on any of the positions.

Thank you for helping our ministries to serve and love both those inside and outside the Church!

 

Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men.  ~~Eph. 6:7
