“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2
The many and varied outreach ministries of this church are living organisms designed to meet needs both spiritually and physically. They are arms of restoration to all persons, especially those of the household of faith. To the extent of their existence, touching the immediate needs of both the church membership and the community is the primary goal. Therefore, establishing tangible assistance to such needs is absolutely essential.
Wanted: Gifted volunteers for difficult service in the local expression of the Kingdom of God. Motivation to serve should be obedience to God, Gratitude, Gladness, Forgiveness, Humility, and Love. Service will rarely be glorious – temptation to quit place of service will sometimes be strong. Volunteers must be faithful in spite of long hours, little or no visible results, and possibly no recognition except from God in eternity.
