How can I serve CCPC?
Many of us think of roles such as praise leader, Sunday school teacher, or even barista! Now all of these positions are important and some are even vital (coffee). But we must remember not to put the cart before the horse. The Church is not a professional organization seeking certain skills to accomplish a goal.
The Church consists of men and women who have been called by the Lord to serve one another and to serve the living God. One of the primary reasons why we have membership at CCPC is to discern whether the individual loves CCPC. Not the institution, but the people. Can they look around the room and commit to knowing the people around them and to seek gospel-centered relationships?
A Church that fills roles with people--even capable ones--who are not members will only sterilize the very character of love that the church is called to exemplify!
So if you wish to serve CCPC, first, choose to love the people around you. Pray for them. Encourage them. Love them. Have coffee with them. Meet them on campus. Meet their kids. Spend time with them. Laugh with them. Cry with them.
And as your heart grows fonder for what God is doing at CCPC, He will show you where to serve.
