Community


Serve Christ in the community

Serving shifts your focus off of yourself onto others in your community. You begin to see others as Jesus sees them – and see Jesus in others. Jesus said, “...Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25: 40 NRSV)
