Service is the giving of time, energy, skills and resources to provide for others. We serve our church, and we serve as the church. Serving our church happens in so many different ways. Holding open doors and greeting people, planning and organizing events, cooking meals for one another in times of need, teaching, singing or playing an instrument are some of the ways people serve our church. Serving as the church is also varied. The focus of such service is to reach out beyond our walls to practically share God’s love and compassion with our community. We endeavor to serve people, with humility, wisdom and grace.
We encourage everyone to thoughtfully and prayerfully consider ways they can serve our church body knowing that each of us is full of great value for our church body.
We provide opportunities that we can serve as the church, such as Faith Promise Missions and Family Promise. As with all else we do as a church, our aim is that through serving our church and serving as the church, each of our lives are shaped and formed to serve others whenever the opportunity arises.
We will keep everyone updated as opportunities arise to serve specific needs.
We encourage anyone looking for a place to serve to consider one of these great ministries.
We support many mission projects, but we're deeply invested in Ukraine. We partner with Mission 823 in their endeavors. Our partnership includes prayer and financial support of Mission 823 and Camp Willow Park. We have also purchased land in the Ukrainian village of Pidhaichyky, and we're actively raising funds to build a bridge-to-life home there.
We open our church building for a week, once per quarter, to be a home for families without a home. The key goal of this ministry, for us, is love and hospitality. Family Promise of Clear Creek is a ministry that helps families get back on their feet by allowing them to save funds, find employment, and receive the training necessary for sustainable living.
We've partnered with the 4B Disaster Response Network – a group of local churches mobilized to help rebuild our area after Hurricane Harvey. 4B represents a geographical region (from Beltway 8 to Galveston Beach and Brazoria County to Galveston Bay). Today, 4BDRN continue to assist those still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Moreover, we are prepared to mobilize and serve quickly in response to future natural disasters. You can learn more about 4BDRN and the current opportunities to serve at 4bresponse.org.
