Serve

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ – Acts 20:35

Scroll down this page to explore serve opportunities — which will be updated periodically — that you or your group can participate in. Some people are hesitant to serve because they aren't sure where God is calling them. By clicking HERE, you can take a free test to help discover your spiritual gifts and God's purpose in your life.

Churches Loving Schools

Our Chapel family partners with New Zion Baptist Church to come alongside and share God's love with James Blair Middle School's teachers and staff. People from both churches show support through individually written cards and prayers. Special gifts and cookouts are given throughout the school year as an extension of this encouragement. If you would like to "adopt" a member of the JBMS Spider Family, then please click on the button below to take you the Sign-Up Genius form.

Adopt-a-Mission Partner

One great opportunity to serve in this season is to “adopt” one of our local or global missions partners. “Adoption” simply means coming alongside your partner in various ways, such as committing to pray for their specific needs. Other ways to engage with your adopted partner include building relationships, serving at their location, and donating your time, talents, or treasures. When you adopt a partner, your first step is to commit to prayer and then allow the Lord to direct next steps.
