Why We Serve

Our default mode as human beings is to serve ourselves, but Jesus calls us to something radically different—he calls us to serve him and others. Serving on Sundays is a simple and tangible way to love one another and follow Jesus. Whether preaching the gospel to a crowd or serving someone a cup of coffee, all our service matters to God. We encourage everyone to find a place to serve at RCL using the unique gifts, talents and resources God has given you.

Serving Vision

Jesus tells us when we serve others in His name, we are also serving Him: “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25:40) We participate in His work of the gospel by serving one another in love. While Jesus asks us to serve Him, it’s important to note He serves us before we ever serve Him. Our service is driven by a sense of gratitude for God’s love and presence in our lives and by a desire to glorify Him in all we do.
