Serving In The Lord’s Light – The Importance Of Serving
Serving brings together our community. We’re based in Santa Teresa, New Mexico but have impacted the El Paso community and beyond because of our volunteers and outreach workers. We’re bringing hope to those around us to help anyone in need of support and the Lord’s word.
Serve Your Church
Every weekend, hundreds of people attend services at our campuses. Our volunteers make it possible for them to feel welcome at each experience. Our teams of volunteers act as the hands and feet of Jesus in so many ways.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Serve Your City
Jesus called us to serve within the church and our communities, to be an example of His love. Therefore, our Serve Team serves our community daily, caring for those in need.
Serve Your World
The biblical foundation for our call to preach the Gospel to the nations comes from Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19-20. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…” It is our responsibility as Christians to take the good news of the Gospel to those who have never heard. Missions are about helping people, but most importantly, missions are about being a part of something bigger than ourselves. Jesus called us to serve within the church and our communities, to be an example of His love. Therefore, our Serve Team serves our community daily, caring for those in need.
How We Help Serve Our Community – Community Services & Outreach
We have committed ourselves to various community services and outreach programs. These have benefited our community and helped us grow and send our message.
We’ve created programs such as:
- Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive
- Fall Festivals
- Water Giveaways
- Give Back To First Responders
- Servolution during Holy Week for Easter. Servolution is about creating a revolution of service in our community.
- Pamper Night For Military Spouses
- Nursing Home Visits
- And More!
How To Get Involved
There are three fundamental ways to spread the life-giving message of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth: Pray, Give, & Go. We’re always looking for more people to join and contribute to the Lord’s cause and purpose. To join one of our teams, head to our Next Step class to sign up. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about our upcoming missions, trips, and opportunities.
Prayer is such an essential part of missions. When praying for missions, you have the opportunity to lift up those that are lost and hurting. Not only can you pray for the unreached people of all nations, but you can also pray for those going out on the front lines. Missionaries, long or short term, depending on the daily prayers of people at home.
You may have a passion for global missions, but perhaps it’s just not possible for you to go right now. That’s ok! Giving is another excellent way to be a part of fulfilling God’s call to global missions. Those who go can’t do that without partners who give.

We love that you sense the urgency to reach the lost and spread the message of Christ to the world. You can respond to this urgency by becoming involved in short-term missions.
