Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Good Shepherd Christian Center is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads to every nation. GSCC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as cleaning the church, to preparing food for the homeless.


Mission Statement

 


Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of GSCC, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Ushers

The usher team at GSCC fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of GSCC. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.


Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at GSCC serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. GSCC is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, fasting and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, before the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry and our community. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer at 6:30pm and Bible study at 7:00pm.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, GSCC holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from christian children movies, to games, to object lessons. The age group is 0-12.


Youth & Young Adult Ministry

GSCC youth and young adult ministry go by the name of S.W.A.G.(Saved With Amazon Grace) We are involved in our community and city. Every 5th Sunday the youth are in charge of the service. In the youth ministry we have praise dancers, perform plays, outside events such as bowling and going to the movies. We are always coming up with new and exciting things to do. The age group is 13-32.
