"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others."

1 Peter 4:10

There are numerous opportunities to serve the Lord through the ministries at FEC. You may have particular gifts to enhance a particular ministry. Throughout this brochure you’ll find exciting opportunities with a short description for each ministry. Prayerfully consider where you can be used most effectively in this local church body. Serving in one of these capacities is the best way to connect with others in the church.

 

See the following list of volunteer opportunities where you can begin serving the Faith Church family.

 

 

Caring & Sharing Committee

If you have empathy for others, this may be the team for you. Help coordinate family receptions after funerals or coordinate meals for families with illnesses.

Time commitment – varied

 

 

 World Outreach Committee

A passion for seeing the gospel brought to people groups around the world is the prerequisite for this committee. This team communicates with our overseas and local missionaries, provides education for the church on the state of Christian missions, and determines the financial needs of missionaries that this local body can meet.

Time commitment – 3 hours/month

 

Outreach Ministry

Faith Church has a passion to reach beyond the four walls of the church. In fact as a measure of the success of our church we believe we have to be making an impact on our community. We want to do good deeds, to gain good will, to earn opportunities to share the good news. Our desire is to rub shoulders with those who are not yet followers of Christ. To accomplish this we encourage everyone to interact with co-workers, neighbors, classmates, and relatives who are not believers by sowing seeds of God’s love in these people’s lives. Our heart is also to help those who are oppressed, the fatherless, the widow, and the poor (Isaiah 1:17). We seek to help our city to prosper through acts of service and prayer (Jeremiah 29: 7). Throughout the year there will be opportunities to serve the homeless, feed the needy, mentor children, help single Mom’s with car maintenance, do home repair for the community’s needy, all in the name of Jesus.

Knit-Wits for Missions

The Knit-Wits for Missions is a support group for the church’s mission outreach around the world and locally. We are made up of men and women who knit and crochet for those in need. We have on-going projects including prayer shawls that provide comfort to the suffering, baby items that serve to support the ministry of Life Choices of Loveland, and baby blankets for the church families when they give birth. We also do various projects during the year that lend support to missionaries and short-term mission teams.
