Thank you for your interest in serving at Gold Country Church. Serving is a great way to connect deeper with God and the community. We encourage you to explore getting involved in the life of the church.
At GCC, the gospel of grace is the starting point and end goal of everything we are doing as a church. We believe the heart of Christian service is not primarily a call to DO something, but a call to KNOW deeply the Good News that “the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).
This verse is so much more than just an example of Jesus for us to follow. Jesus is calling us to know and trust him as our Saviour and Servant-King before we follow him as a servant to others. Just as how we love because he first loved us (1 John 4:19), the heart of serving is first the joy of knowing that our Lord came humbly to love and serve us. We do not serve in order to be a “good” Christian, because the only person good enough to impress God is Jesus. Rather, serving others is our response of worship, gratitude and love to God because of the grace we have in Christ. This is the Good News of grace. This is an important step for you to know the church better, and more importantly to allow us to know you. As we serve alongside one another, we really want you to be known and cared for in both spiritual and practical ways. nWe value your desire to serve, and thank God for you.
