Opportunities to Serve


As a believer and faithful follower of Jesus Christ we must realize that God created us for a purpose.  He has a special plan for our lives and wants to use us to accomplish His work.  When you became a Christian, you were filled with the Holy Spirit and given special gifts for ministry.  A spiritual gift is an expression of the Holy Spirit in the life of believers, which empowers them to serve the body of Christ, the church.
