Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Glendora Community Church is service. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. GCC  members are involved in a variety of ministries.

To seek life transformation in Christ for everyone, growing together through Worship, Discipleship, and Service.

Service:

A note from Mike Platter, Senior Pastor of GCC…

We definitely believe that Jesus is the Answer to the spiritual needs of the individual and of the world.  We believe that God wants each local church to be an avenue through which the love and power of Jesus can reach others.  Therefore, as a neighborhood church, we want to be focused on following Jesus and on being useful to Him in loving others.

There’s a story about Jesus which gives an almost perfect picture of what we believe. It is found in the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 6 and begins with verse 44.  He has been preaching to a crowd which had followed him out to a deserted area.  After preaching, he knew they were hungry, but there was no nearby place to get any food for them.  Someone brought him a bit of food, some bread and some fish.  Jesus prayed over the bread and then distributed it to everyone.  Because of the power of His faith and His touch, that small amount of food fed 5,000 people!

We find our church in that story.  We are the person who handed over the little bit of bread and fish – we believe that Jesus wants to use our small amount of talents and gifts to bless others.  We are also sometimes the hungry people in the story – and we have learned to look to Jesus for what we need and to share with one another of our resources.  And, sometimes we are the bread and fish itself – we believe that He will actually use our lives to touch others with His love.

That’s who we are trying to be:  people who follow Jesus, trust Him, and let ourselves be available to love others as His love flows through our lives.

 How Can I Serve?
