eStreet-Serves-Final-01-01We believe serving is more than volunteering. It’s deeper, vaster and a key component of discipleship. As followers of Jesus, serving is God’s love in action, and it can be life changing. That’s why we strive to connect people with ways to use their unique gifts and passions to be the hands and feet of Christ in our church, community and world.

Opportunities to serve in Raleigh include serving with our ministry partners; through missional communities; and special events, such as our Great Day of Service and Stop Hunger Now. You can serve beyond Raleigh with our ministry partners in Africa, Armenia, Bahamas, East Asia, Guatemala, and Haiti. We encourage folks to serve both outside and inside our church walls at least once a month.

There are many opportunities to serve in the church through hospitality, worship and music, our youth and children’s programs, and behind the scenes.

For questions, contact Renae Newmiller, Director of Sending Ministries.
