Serve Opportunities

You’re never more like Jesus than when you are giving and when you are serving! That’s why serving is a core value at ERBC!

Serving is not just something you do; as followers of Christ, we are called to be servants!

“The greatest among you must be a servant!” –Matthew 23:11.

Jesus demonstrated this very scripture in his action as he washed the feet of his disciples (John 13:14–17), as he healed the sick (Matthew 4:23) and fed the poor (Luke 9:10-17), and even as he died for us upon the cross (John 19:28-30). These are just a few examples of the constant servant leadership that Jesus exemplified throughout his life.

Moreover, Jesus said the most important commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-40). These two commandments are intertwined. To love God fully, we must indeed love our neighbor.

In Matthew 25, Jesus explains further: “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”

Serving others glorifies God by ultimately pointing to God’s unwavering love for our neighbor and our love for both God and our neighbor. This is what being a Christian is all about: Loving and glorifying God.

If you are not yet serving somewhere, or would like to serve more, please take a look at the serve opportunities below.

We have both in-house and outreach service opportunities, so take your pick!

And there is always enough room for more volunteers, so don’t be shy and let us know what you feel called to help with! If you see an opportunity you would like to know more about or sign up for, please fill out the Serve Interest Form at the bottom of this page.

Take the Spiritual Gifts Test and see what your natural, God-given gifts are!

Every Christian is blessed with Spiritual Gifting from God!

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 states,
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

So what Spiritual Gifts has God bless you with? Take the Spiritual Gifts Test to find out!
