God has blessed us all with unique gifts and talents.  As Christians, we are expected to use our spiritual gifts to serve others and to glorify God.  Jesus, himself, came to Earth to serve, rather than to be served.  By serving others, we show our love for them as well as God’s love.  Serving is also a great way to get connected within the life of the church.  Below is a listing of many ways in which you can get involved and volunteer at Covenant.  Please consider serving in at least one of these capacities.  Many find that in their mission to bless others, it is actually themselves who are richly blessed.
