Serves

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 is 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.

Beyond Raleigh, we partner with ministries in Africa, Armenia, Bahamas, East Asia, Guatemala, and Haiti.

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

For upcoming events, and ongoing ways to serve locally and globally, sign-up for our monthly Faith In Action newsletter.
