SERVANTHOOD

“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).

Heart of a Servant

As followers of Jesus, we are grateful to be empowered by God’s Spirit to serve those around us who are hurting. It is our desire to help meet needs in ways that enhance the dignity of all involved. We strive to be responsive, creative, and faithful to our call: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace…” 1 Peter 4:10.

Join us in the joy of following Jesus, the One who came to serve.

G2K is Harvest’s clothing ministry, and each Spring, G2K provides free Prom Dresses and accessories to girls in Medina County.
We sponsor The Prom Ministry to demonstrate God’s love and bless teen girls by promoting positive self-image and confidence based on their inner beauty and identity in Christ. Every girl, made in the image of God and adopted into His royal family, should have the chance to feel like the royalty she truly is.

Each Spring, we turn over the ground of our community garden and participate in the renewing process of caring for our neighbors as we tend God’s earth.
Friends of Harvest are encouraged to help plant, weed, tend, and harvest the vegetables that are grown. We then donate this fresh produce to community food pantries.
A wonderful opportunity to get your hands dirty! Adults, teens, families are encouraged to dig in, and grow together!

MISSION: As followers of Jesus, we are empowered by His Spirit to serve those who hurting. Living out this life of faith, we invite others in our community to share and experience the Good News of Jesus Christ.

CORE VALUES

JESUS: Jesus meets us in the pain and struggles of our lives and loves us in the midst of it all. He rescues us from our bondage. This is the source of our hope and contagious joy.

STORY: We are each part of God’s story. Everyone has a story to tell and each story has value. We are committed to discovering the places where these stories connect with the eternal story of Jesus and His love.

SERVE: The original followers of Jesus continued his servant ministry in the world, and they changed the course of history. Following His call, and the instruction of those who have gone before us, we take our place among the next generation of those who serve in His name.

RISK: The life of faith is a life with risks, taking steps outside our comfort zone. Jesus called on his disciples to risk comfort and stability to share His Gospel, in word and deed. The calling on our lives is the same.

GOAL: To encourage the congregation develop their God-given abilities in the service of others, and provide opportunities for them to do so.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
