We believe the cheerful and sacrificial giving of our time and talents is part of our worship and a way to obey God's command to "love one another" (John 13:34-35). There are a number of ways for you to use your gifts to serve the body of Christ for God's glory within and beyond the Five Points community. For even more opportunites to serve, check out the serve portion on The Table or pick up a "Serve" booklet at the Welcome Desk before or after our Sunday service.
Join a team of individuals who serve behind the scenes by providing for the audio and visual needs of our services, events, and activities. Training on how to operate the sound and video equipment is provided, so all that is needed is general technology experience and a desire to serve. (2-3 hours per week, mainly on Sunday mornings.)
