“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
– 1 Peter 4:10
It’s something the average churchgoer may not think about as they go about their Sunday morning rituals. The time, hard work and effort that go into making sure the community is allowed to enjoy and embrace the Good Word of Christ. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes at your local church and it takes more than just a few people to keep Sunday morning schedules running smoothly. At Eternity Church of Clive, there’s a special program in place to ensure that everyone can help out without missing a beat. It’s known as “Serving ONE | ONE.”
Serving One, Attending One
So how does this program work? Those who participate have the chance to be a part of not one, but both Sunday services at Eternity Church. Volunteers enjoy one service and work to make sure another runs smoothly. It can be quite the task to ensure there are enough greeters, ushers, and caretakers at every service, but now everyone has a chance to give back. The volunteer program is essentially double-sided, but so are the rewards!
“So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
– Galatians 6:10
Whether you sign up to work in the parking lot to ensure all visitors and lots are safe or you simply volunteer to greet visitors as they arrive, the serving program offers invaluable experience. Those who get involved build a community of friends and family in the church, an experience that makes attending all the more enjoyable. Helping hands are a driving force behind the Christian community and the church’s volunteer program, led by coordinator Teri Frana, couldn’t do it without the support of the congregation.
If you’re interested in getting involved, head on over to Eternity Church’s website or reach out to a church official. A little goes a long way and at Eternity Church, everyone has a chance to take an active role in their Christian community.
