Serve

Every Member Ministry 

Under the new covenant, Jesus Christ purchased every Christian to be a priest to the living God (Rev 5:9-10). Therefore, every Christian is equal partakers of grace as a "priesthood of all believers". There is no special class of Christian, which is why every member has a vital ministry to their local church and to the watching world (Eph 4:11-16). We encourage every member at Grace Evangelical Church to look for opportunities to serve one another and the community around us. Examples of every-member ministry include:

  • Studying the Bible with another member or visitor.
  • Meeting up to read a good Christian book.
  • Inviting members or visitors over for a meal. 
  • Visiting someone in the hospital.
  • Knowing and meeting the needs of others.
  • Calling or messaging someone to see how they are doing.
  • Using the membership directory to pray for the body.  
  • Meeting together to pray for another and keep one another accountable.
