Serving as an Act of Worship

_DSC5055We have often heard that serving brings glory to God. How does that work? In 1 Peter 4:10-11, Peter urges us to use the gifts we have received to serve others. This passage says,

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

These gifts that we received from God are to be used to serve others and bring praise to God. Serving is about God receiving his rightful glory through our worshipful response to him in service._DSC5012

What gifts has God given you to glorify him? No matter the gift or the time constraint there is a place for you to serve. Your help is essential in the effort to bring the gospel into the lives of children and their families in our community.

Springdale offers a variety of different capacities where you can glorify God in service to Him. VBS is an exciting and fun way to serve our community! As summer approaches and we draw near to this opportunity to share the gospel with children in all different walks of life, please consider taking time to serve our community and our church body. VBS encompasses a variety of opportunities for people to use their specific, God-given gifts for service.

Here are a few opportunities:

  • Room Decorating

We’re even looking for willing servants who only have a day or two to offer during VBS week. We value your help as we serve on this mission field. We are all ministers of the gospel and we can help to share it with the children through every act of service. Please consider how you might be able to use the talents and gifts God has given to you as we go on mission in our community.
