Small Ways to Serve

You don't have to cross the ocean to be on the mission field, you just have to walk outside. There are so many ways to serve friends and even strangers. Serve through love whether at church or in your community.



For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Galatians 5:13
