How Serving Helps You Step Out of Your Comfort Zone [ONBOARD]

Onboard White

In the midst of preparing for our big On Board party, we have had so much fun sharing about our unbelievable volunteers!  They make serving at Connexus such a joy!

SylviaThis is Sylvia; she is one of our incredible volunteers that serves on the Hospitality Team here at Connexus.

This is who Sylvia is!

I did not grow up in church.  My family went to church only on Easter and Christmas.  I stopped attending altogether in my teens.  When I got married and had kids of my own I felt there was something missing in our lives.  I wanted them to have faith but didn't know what to teach them.  I asked God to show me the way.  After some searching I found Connexus.  At the first service I knew I was in the right place.  We've been coming back every weekend since July 2009.

We are so glad that she does!  She makes sure that we get a hot, delicious cup of coffee every weekend.

I serve on the coffee team and I love it!  I enjoy drinking coffee so it seemed a natural thing for me to do. I think it's wonderful that we greet guests with a warm cup of great coffee.  It makes them feel welcome and invited.

We couldn't agree more!  We love making our guests feel welcome, and Sylvia does a great job at it.  Not only is she great at what she does, but she has grown as a result.

I used to be a lot more shy and was even hesitant about joining the coffee team.  But I took that first step out of my comfort zone and God has really helped me overcome that.  I've also joined small groups and made some great friends, watching and encouraging others to grow in their faith.  I feel closer to God now than I've ever been my whole life.

This is so encouraging, and we love to see everyone at Connexus growing in their faith. We deeply believe that one of the greatest ways to grow your faith is through serving.  

It is so evident that Sylvia is passionate about our vision to create a church that unchurched people love to attend, and our mission to lead others into a growing relationship with Christ.

I love that I found Jesus at Connexus.  I was unchurched but I didn't feel like I couldn't belong.  Now that I know who Jesus is I am passionate about inviting my unchurched friends, family and co-workers. I want them to discover who He is too!!

And that's exactly why we do what we do week in and week out.  We are so thankful to have Sylvia on our team and so thankful for the way she urges others to help out as well!

I really think serving is the natural next step to take to grow your faith.  You never know where God will lead you.  You just have to make the first move by offering to help.

If you think you may be ready to step out of your comfort zone and take a step forward in serving, we are planning something just for you.  We are throwing a party to highlight all of the opportunities we have here at Connexus to serve, and we would love for you to be there!  Join us on June 6th at 7:30pm for our On Board party and check it out yourself!  To RSVP for this exciting event, simply click the link below!
