If you have been attending Valley Bible for some time, you may be wondering what steps you can take to get more involved. This is a great desire because, as believers, we are called to serve one another (1 Peter 4:10) and when we are all doing this, then the whole body of believers grows and matures in the faith (Ephesians 4:11-16). Below are some practical steps that will help you to get more involved here at Valley Bible.
First, we would encourage you to get involved in one of our growth groups. Our growth groups are smaller groups of believers that meet on various days of the week. Normally a growth group meeting will involve some form of Bible Study as well as a time of small groups. We believe that these groups will allow you to develop more personal relationships that will not only help you feel more connected to our church but also to help you grow in your relationship with Christ. For a list of our growth groups as well as where and when they meet, please see our growth group page.
Second, if you want to also start serving in other areas of the church, then we would encourage you to talk to your growth group leader about the opportunities there are to serve in the church. They will be able to provide you with guidance concerning what ministries have needs as well as who you can talk to if you are interested in certain ministries.
Third, another way to express your interest to serve in the church is to fill out our Service Opportunities Survey. Please keep in mind that filling out this survey does not necessarily mean that each ministry listed actually has a current need or that you will automatically be contacted about serving in each ministry you select. Rather, the goal of this survey is to help you see the areas that we have people serving in as well as to provide our ministry leaders with people who are interested in serving when needs do arise. We still recommend the best course of action is to talk to your growth group leader or even the ministry leader of the ministry you want to serve in.
