If we become involved together, as a church, we can expand in our outreach.
A heart of service is another step of growth in our faith as Christians.
“If therefore there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”
“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, let him speak, as it were, the utterances of God; whoever serves, let him do so as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen”
I Peter 4:10-11
Hear what our volunteers have to say about serving at ShoreLife:
“George and I did not know how we could serve at a church that has so many young families. We prayed about it and waited to see if the Lord opened any doors, meaning, reading something in the bulletin that spoke to our hearts, responding to a request to serve, or hearing about a ministry like Moms that is close to my heart. Now, we are hosting a Bible Study in our home. I think the Lord wants all of us to serve in some way because it will give us a sense that we are connected to HIS church and will feel a part of the fellowship.”

“Kevin and I have gotten involved in various ways over the years. It is a blessing to serve as part of the body knowing that in working together, and each of us doing our part, we get to be used by God to be His hands and feet. We have served in areas where we see a need. Currently, we are teaching the 3rd and 4th graders. Seeing the kids who are really asking some great questions with amazing insight has been a blessing. We have also served through opening our home for small groups. Serving in this capacity has really connected us to others in the body. We enjoy serving through ShoreLife with ministries such as letters of encouragement and providing meals. It is good for our kids to serve alongside in this capacity and to demonstrate to them that serving is important and can be fun, too. We have been blessed by serving the Lord at ShoreLife.”

“When I first started attending ShoreLife I was a wallflower; a very shy wallflower, so getting to know people was extremely difficult. I quickly got involved in helping out in Sunday school classes and that is how I got to know people at ShoreLife. When I worked in the guppies class I got to chat with the ladies who worked in there, get to know the moms, and get to know the kids as they grew up (my first Guppies are now in High School, yikes!). Getting involved is what made ShoreLife my home. After all, doesn’t everyone in a family help out around the house and work together? I forged bonds with amazing people through serving together in ministry. God made us to do good works for Him (Ephesians2:10), and so I am at the most peace in my life when I am doing what He made me to do!”
