It takes a lot of behind-the-scenes sweat to make a church thrive, and you may be surprised at the relationships and personal growth that happens for those who give their heart and hands to help out. If you would like to serve, we’ve listed a few great ways to get started. Download this form(I Can Help Form). If you like, you can fill it out and drop it by the welcome center in the GWC lobby or fax or email it to our office.
Be a hero! Help kids grow a lifelong love for God and His Word. For more information about serving on the GWKids Team, please see the “Volunteer in Children’s Ministry” section.
- Welcome Center (Irma Martinez)
Be a friendly face in the lobby, helping man the table where visitors and new members come to pick up materials and ask questions. Also guide existing members as they collect info and sign-up for various church events.
- Ushers (Odis Smithers)
An extension of pastoral ministry, these gentlemen provide more than just a good seat. Bible veterans, they pray before each service, always ready to minister to people when a need arises. Because they’re assigned the same section each service, they’re usually the first to develop a caring bond with new regulars. Their job is to serve the congregation and set a positive atmosphere in the sanctuary.
Communion, Baptism, Dedications
During Jesus’ days on earth, eating together was a very intimate form of fellowship. It represented a close bond then, and it still does today when we receive it together with God and each other. At GWC, we serve communion during one Sunday morning service each month.

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.I Corinthians 11:24-26
Baptism is a great picture of our new life in Jesus, and in fact He commanded us to be baptized. Though the rite itself does not save us, it does prove our salvation since it shows our willingness to obey Him. Our next water baptism service is set for Sunday, October 30, 2016, at 5:30 PM. Interested? Please sign up by calling us at 281-580-8806 or email us now: firstname.lastname@example.org
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Â Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Â For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.Romans 6:3-5
Prayer can transform. It can change destiny. We believe that’s what happens when we publicly dedicate a child to the will of God. It also presents a chance for parents and family members to commit to raise the child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, (Ephesians 6:4) summoning His help along the way.
