Serving at Bascomb
At Bascomb UMC, we encourage everyone to serve the church in whatever manner suits you best. We have so many different ways you can get involved, there is bound to be something that interests you. So why serve the church?
1. Serving puts feet to your faith.
Christ has brought us a beautiful freedom: the freedom to walk with God! Before Christ, we couldn’t commune with the Lord—we were impure. Now that we can walk with Him, we have a choice: use our freedom to go back to our old ways or serve one another.
Service is an expression of true faith. If we say we love Christ, but refuse to actively love our fellow Christ-followers, what do we think faith is about? Jesus Himself made a point of serving humanity everywhere He went—even to the point of death. Our “death” is far less than what He experienced. It is the awkwardness of learning something new, the uncomfortable adjustment to our schedule or the inconvenience of staying late. But that’s what love is: a sacrifice.
2. Serving connects you with others.
Serving your church connects you with fellow believers. It can be hard to meet people outside your immediate circle. Serving is a great way to find people you may otherwise never meet during or after the service. Bascomb has many first hand accounts of people becoming lifelong friends because of service opportunity that they both were a part of. You never know who you’ll meet when you choose to serve!
3. Serving cultivates humility and love.
Finally, service is a reflection of God’s heart. From the beginning, God has been humbly and lovingly serving humanity: providing for our needs, bearing with our sinfulness and making a way for us to know Him. When we think we’re too good for service—or too busy, a more common excuse—keep in mind that this is something God Himself does for us every day.
You don’t have to have amazing skills to serve. You just need to be willing. But if you do have a gifting—and most of us do—that is your opportunity to share it with fellow believers.
If you’re not already serving, start seeking an opportunity today. Leave an imprint where you are and you’ll see God make an impact on your heart.
