Serving Others

Inside and outside the church

Why Serve Others

This component of our Vision Statement relates to being the hands and feet of Jesus. We serve others both inside the church (serving on a specific ministry team), AND outside the church (involvement in community activities, service groups, or outreach events).

Our desire at Vero Christian Church is to have every member committed to this level of showing the love of God through service to others.

A form of outreach!

In his book, "The Faith Once For All," Dr. Jack Cottrell asserts:

Community service activities by the church draw not only those who are directly helped thereby, but also those who observe what we are doing...The point of doing such good works is not to bring praise to ourselves, but to cause others to glorify God and thus want to surrender to Him.

Service Survey

As we continue our vision of Love God, Love People, Serve Others we want to determine the community impact members of VCC are having. could you please take a moment to answer the following questions? Thank you in advance for your help!

Also, by "in church" ministry, we mean anything you do as a volunteer act of service in the church (teaching a class, Communion prep, greeter, etc.). The outside the church service areas could include things like: coaching a little league team, volunteering in the arts, school volunteer, helping a local charity, etc. Please list the approximate number of hours per month you serve in each of these areas. Again, thank you for taking the time to fill out the form below.
