Serving is the natural outflowing of God’s love from our own lives into the world around us.
A Challenge to Serve
If you are just beginning to consider how God might have gifted you to serve, set aside some time to pray through the extensive list of opportunities below and choose one to try. Perhaps you will discover a joy in that opportunity, or maybe He uses it to lead you to a different opportunity.
