Opportunities to Serve
One of the congregational expectations at Grace Fellowship is for our members to find a ministry in which to serve. As members of the body of Christ, it is our honor to serve our Lord and Savior with the spiritual gifts and talents He has bestowed upon us. We ask that you take a moment to take our Ministry Opportunity Survey listed to the right. It will help us identify where your skills and talents might be best applied. For a more in-depth exploration of your gifts and talents we invite you to check out our Spiritual Gifts Test listed to the right.
Descriptions of many of our ministries can be found below. We welcome suggestions for other ministries that our members would like to see or start at Grace Fellowship. Please contact the church office with your choice for service or suggestions for new ministry opportunities.
