the call To Serve
Answering the call to reach people of the Mid-Ohio Valley and loving people through excellence in serving. Ephesians 4 says we’re all equipped to build the church so that believers can grow in unity and maturity in their faith. We truly believe God made you with a purpose, and serving is a great way to discover it and live it out. There are many serving opportunities at Freedom Gate, no matter where your gifts and interests lie, there’s a place for you on Team FGC.
Why We Serve
“Serving on the Care Team is like helping family members. It is always a pleasure and great fun when we all work together.”
“As a guest I always felt so welcome here, which helped me feel comfortable in getting back into a church setting. Being on a serving team gives me the opportunity to be a small part of helping new guests feel that same level of welcoming.”
“We are newer members to Freedom Gate but have been a part of serving teams for over 20 years. We love feeling connected to our church family and find that in serving the body of Christ you receive far more than you can give”
