Here at Cityview Bible Church, we 'Love to Serve'. This theme intentially carries two main ideas:
1) God created each of us with certisn natural talents and spiritual gifts. When we serve others by using those talents and gifts, we will feel a sense of fullfillment in serving, and we will 'LOVE to Serve.'
2) God shows us what love looks like. He came to us and served our greatest needs. His example teaches us this truth: our love for God and for others motivates us to serve them, so we 'LOVE to Serve.'
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SERVE?
When we say the word 'serve' we are talking about your volunteer work at Cityview Bible Church. Maybe that's the time you spend with the facilities team setting up the gym on Sunday mornings, or maybe it's the Kids Life small group you lead, or the time you spend greeting families as they arrive to the YMCA. Essentially, to serve means to give of your time for the benefit of other people.
WHY DO WE SERVE?
Look, serving others is hard work! It takes time and effort that could easily be spent elsewhere. The question of why we serve is the right one, because we want to serve for the right reasons, and we want to LOVE to Serve! That sense of ministry fulfillment comes from the act of service specifically when we are serving others from a place of love and trust in Jesus, not from a place of obligation.
These are a few of the reasons we serve:
- Jesus modeled serving others; if He served others, we should too.
- When you serve others, you discover your own gifts and talents.
- You will make lasting relationships with the people on your team.
- Other people at Cityview benefit from your service and volunteer time.
