We are made for community, and each of us is meant to be an important part of the life of the church.  We become more of who God created us to be by being in a thriving relationship with other believers.  Below are some of the avenues by which we seek to accomplish that.  God places each of us in fellowship within a congregation in order to serve.  If you are unsure of what or where to serve, a beginning step is to take a spiritual gifts test.
