opportunities to serve

One of the greatest responsibilities God has given us is the opportunity to serve others. Serving isn’t what we want from you, it’s what we want for you. It’s not what you have to do, it’s what you get to do. You will often hear the phrase “Salty People Serve” because the mission at Salty Church is to “RESCUE and EMPOWER people for Christ.” It is far greater than what we can accomplish alone as a staff, so we need every person to use their gifts to serve others. One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve. And it’s not just on the weekends! Serving opportunities are available seven days a week. We have many opportunities that need your unique God-given talents and individual passions.
