"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
If you look around Hope, you will see that our volunteers are an essential part of our day to day ministries. God has gifted each of us with spiritual gifts meant to serve His Kingdom. Whether its the welcoming smile on a Sunday morning, helping a child with their craft, or working behind the scenes to get ready for an event, God has called us to serve.
Peter reminds us in 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 that we all have a role to play, a responsibility we are called to fulfill. So, how can you serve God and His people?
