Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so 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. 1 Peter 4:10-11
On most Sundays, it is easy to imagine that “all the bases are covered,” since there is someone to greet you at the door, read the lessons, take up the offering, teach the children, sing the music, serve the coffee and cookies, etc. All those tasks are done by volunteers who say by their volunteering, “Faith Church is important to me!”
The reasons people volunteer are varied, but there is one truth that applies to all volunteers: you will be more closely connected to this community if you volunteer in some capacity than if you don’t. Being part of a team can be a very rewarding experience.
