Why would I want to serve others? Everything in our culture says that people should serve us, not the other way around. It was no different in Jesus’ day. But he told his followers that if they had a desire to be great, they had to learn to truly serve others. Check it out – Mark 10:42-45.
As we serve others with the various abilities and resources that God gives us, we soon realize how God uses this to grow us in our own faith. At Heritage we want to provide every opportunity for people to serve each other. The church is a body (1 Cor. 12:27), and we can’t function the way God intended us to unless every part of that body is serving together (1 Cor. 12:18). We recognize that though it may be counter-cultural, serving is an essential part of following Jesus Christ.
Serving others as part of Heritage comes with many benefits, here are just a few:
- Connect with others serving in the same area
- Acquire new skills
- Develop your character
- Learn to lead
- Experience working with people
There are many contexts for serving with Heritage, both during our corporate gatherings and throughout the week. Whether you are looking to work with people or stay behind the scenes, work outside or behind a desk, be involved every week or when your schedule allows, we have a way for you to plug in and bless others.
You don’t have to be an expert or have extensive experience to serve, we will train you. But we do want to consider the specific ways in which God has gifted you. If you would like to add your contribution to what God is doing through Heritage, please complete an Online Serving Worksheet and we will be in touch!
