Throughout the Bible, we see God’s followers referred to as ‘servants.’ This is true throughout all of Scripture but culminates in Jesus who demonstrated the ultimate act of service in his self-sacrifice on the cross. Jesus himself said that he came “not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).
As a church, we depend heavily on Sunday Ministry Teams made up of volunteers who serve our church by creating an environment where others are loved and where we can worship God in the Spirit and in truth (John 4:4). Creating such an environment requires numerous very practical areas of service, whether that’s the behind-the-scenes work of setting up chairs, or whether it’s organizing stations to partake of the Lord's Supper. All of this aims to create a hospitable environment as we seek to fulfill the biblical command to love one another (John 13:34).
