Serving God at Emmanuel
"And He personally gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the training of the saints in the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of God’s Son, growing into a mature man with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness...From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part. Ephesians 4:11-16
“Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different ministries, but the same Lord. And there are different activities, but the same God activates each gift in each person. A demonstration of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial." 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
God has uniquely designed and shaped you to serve Him through the Church! It is through serving God that He uses us to build others up and grow spiritually ourselves.
Once you are committed to growing through Worship at Emmanuel, and are plugged into a Small Group, Bible Study, or Ministry Group, we want you to be able to find your place to Serve God. We have many areas of Ministry to Serve in at Emmanuel. We encourage you to start by serving in and through your Small group, Bible Study or Ministry Group. Then consider a Ministry of the Church You can be involved in.
Consider your SHAPE: Spiritual Gifts, Heart (Passions), Abilities (Talents), Personality, and Experiences. If you need help in this journey we have resources at our Website to help you or we would be glad to meet with you!
Simply Check out the Ministry Team Areas below. Fill in the form below. Remember you are not committed for life! We encourage you to test out your gifts and where you feel you might fit! If it doesn't work or is not a good fit, its ok!
*To help you, here is a list of Spiritual gifts and their definitions based on what we find in scripture. Prayerfully read through and consider these.
Perhaps there is a ministry that we do not have yet at Emmanuel, that God may be leading you to start or give leadership to. We are open to that! Talk to a staff member and we can begin to pray together to see what God might have in store.
* Please note that serving in some areas at Emmanuel will have some specific requirements such as Police checks, special training, age requirements, regular attendance at Emmanuel, and membership.
