For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Living the way of Jesus is an invitation to use the gifts, talents and resources we have to serve Him and one another. At CTW, we live open-handed with our entire lives, including our time. Serving is the natural outworking of the Holy Spirit living in us and it makes us look most like Jesus. We have places to serve on Sundays during church services, during the weekly ministries, and in our community.  We would love to invite you to join us as we serve His Church and His people and the community around us.

Serve in the church

Use your unique gifts to help serve the church.

To have a heart for the house of God is to love His church and serve His church. Everyone is invited to take that step into a ministry to serve. We are never more like Jesus than when we serve, so join a serve team today and make an impact for Him. Click the link below for all of the different serve teams we have and get connected today!

Serve in the community

Help put the love of Jesus on display for the world to see.

Throughout the year, we have multiple opportunities to serve our community. We do not want anyone to feel limited to serving the community only within the organization and programs the church supports. If God calls you to be involved in something, do it! Do not wait on permission to do good and love people in the name of Jesus. We will have organized opportunities to serve the community, and you can find those by clicking the link below or heading to the events page.
