READY TO HELP?


One of the most fulfilling things any of us can do in life is be a blessing to others. This is done through the gifts and talents that God has given each of us. Ephesians 2:10 tells us, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” God gave every person the gifts and talents that we need to complete our mission for the Kingdom.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 20:26, “…but whoever desires to become great among you, let Him be your servant.” Romans 12:3-8 talks about serving God with the gifts He has given us. Verse 7 talks about the gift of ministering. The word minister here is the Greek word ‘diakonia.’ We get the word deacon from this word. It means to be an attendant (as in a servant).

With all this in mind, we are to use the gifts that God created us with to serve others. The Helps Ministry consists of all places in Grace Christian Center where you have an opportunity to bless others by serving. We ask that every person prayerfully consider where they may serve God. Every service takes between 75 and 100 volunteers, so we know there is a place for you!
