SERVE OPPORTUNITIES @ CRC

Capture

Say “Hi” and ‘pass the plate’. CRC wants to be a church of friends… not simply a friendly church.  Sign up to be a Section Leader on a Sunday during the 10am service. It’s all about making friends. Also consider serving as a Sunday morning greeter…be a welcoming handshake and smile to everyone who comes to CRC.

Find Your Sweet Spot!  CRC invites you to discover that place of service where God has designed you to thrive! The best way to discover your sweet spot is by serving in the church (children, youth, adult, support tasks, etc) and discerning if that’s your “sweet spot”.
