"Say Yes": For the next two weekends, we're going to give you a unique opportunity to "Say Yes" to using your special gifts, talents, and skills to help further God's kingdom through various roles. Stop by the lobby to meet and chat with our Ministry leaders. They'll give you some helpful information and show you how to sign up to serve on one of our Ministry Teams: Children's Ministry, Worship & Tech, Student Ministry, First Impressions, Family and Care, Outreach, and Operations.

    Jesus said "For the son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45 NIV).

     We want to help you find the place where you can "Say Yes" and serve as well! In fact, if you're not quite sure where to start or how you fit best, take the S.H.A.P.E. Test to better understand how God has "shaped" you to serve.
