Service Opportunities

Now that you have discovered your SHAPE what’s next?

Jesus said to his discipleships, “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives life to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

We hope this assessment process has been both encouraging and helpful to you. You are a valuable piece of God’s story as you participate with others in Christ’s body, the church, and as you make a difference for God’s kingdom. Where, how, or even if you serve is your choice, but as you respond to God’s purposes for your life, God promises you will reflect Christ’s light in a life-giving, fruitful, and joy-filled way. When we give ourselves away for the sake of Christ, we experience God’s presence in a unique and humbling way. Ironically, we think we get joy and fulfillment by accumulating more and more for ourselves, God says the opposite is true! In the process of serving, may you know God’s infinite love for you, experience deep relationships with those you serve alongside, and discover your own God-given potential!

Choosing Your Place of Service

1. Pray: ask God to help you discern a ministry connection to explore
2. Review: look through the list of current Service Opportunities through SBPC to find a ministry area or position that interests you
3. Connect: contact a SBPC Ministry Leader within the area of ministry you selected. Talk through your SHAPE results and explore the potential areas of service available
4. Volunteer: begin serving! If you discover this isn’t the best fit you can begin the process again.
