Discover the Joy of Serving
Serving others brings joy for several reasons. For one, it brings joy because serving is an act of worship. That is, we express our love for God by serving Him. The act of serving also brings joy because it is a means of fulfilling God's purpose in our life by putting the skills, gifts and abilities He has given us to work. And serving brings joy because it transforms us; that is, as we serve other we grow spiritually.
Every one of us is gifted in some way to serve. Romans 12:2 tells us: "We have different gifts, according to the grace given us."
Discover How You Are Created to Serve
Each of us is uniquely made. We all have different combinations of spiritual gifts, passions, abilities, personalities and life experiences that make us who we are that work together to prepare us to serve God. We believe there is a place to serve for every person who is part of Autumn Ridge Church - a place to serve that is just right for them. Discovering where you fit in is as easy as 1,2,3.
