303 Serve

303 Serve

At Windover Hills, we believe that everyone can make a difference with their lives.  One of the ways we do that is by serving others with our gifts, skills, passion and talents. In serving others, we live out the love that Jesus came to share with us.  By volunteering, we grow in our faith and understanding of what it means to be a person who is fully alive.

We want everyone to have chance to explore various opportunities to volunteer until they find the place of service that works for them.

Volunteering will allow you to experience a ministry that “fits” you.  By signing up to volunteer in an area in our church, we will give you the opportunity to try out a ministry area short term before you make a longer commitment.  If the ministry area is a good fit for you, we will ask you to serve in that area for a year.
