How and where can I serve?
Whether down the street in Roswell, in downtown Atlanta, or around the globe, we are called to use our God-given, unique spiritual gifts to be stewards of God’s grace (1 Peter 4:10).  If you would like to discuss ways you can serve or need more information on serving in any area, please contact the Associate Minister/Missions and Service at 770-261-1716.

How do I know where I should serve?
Each of us receives special gifts when we accept Christ as our Savior.  As Christians, it is a privilege to serve Him through our church as the body of Christ within our own community and beyond. We encourage you to explore your own Gifts by sampling different opportunities inside and outside the church. By identifying your gifts and passions you will be able to find the opportunities to fulfill God’s purpose for your life. If you need help finding opportunities, contact the Associate Minister/Missions and Service at 770-261-1716.
