  • Praying for those who are sick and hurting & writing cards for them.
  • Become a part of the Ministry of Encouragement.
  • Give old eye classes, ink cartridges, greeting cards, “Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels for Education, for various ministries.
  • Take food or provide other assistance to the sick and those who are grieving.
  • Go out of your way to welcome guests in our worship gatherings.
  • Volunteer to teach or assist in our Children’s Ministry. No experience needed, just a willingness to serve!
  • Visit our shut-ins to encourage them.
  • Come up with creative ways we can fulfill our mission to love God and to love people.
  • Be active in telling the good news and loving people in tangible ways as you go through your normal rhythm of life.
