GOD MADE THE WORLD AND GAVE US SKILLS, ABILITIES, AND GIFTS TO USE FOR HIM AND OTHERS IN IT.
As we look at Jesus, we see God serving us (Mark 10:45). When Jesus served on earth, He lived for others (John 17:19). Serving defined the whole of His life (Phil 2:7). We live and flourish by His living, dying, and rising. Jesus calls us to do the same. When we take in Jesus’ love and life, He changes why we serve. We don't serve out of selfishness, asking, “What can I get out of this?” or “Look at what I’ve done.”
Many of the New Testament letters confront selfishness. Living in authentic community, the first churches were marked by life for “one-another” (Ephesians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:8; Hebrews 3:13). Jesus said it best: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34).
At Apex, those authentic communities are called “house churches.” It’s the vital place we live life together, giving our talents, resources, and selves to serve one another. Together, we go into the world to serve our neighbors and the nations.
This page offers opportunities to serve throughout the life and ministry of the church at Apex: where we’re gathering together to celebrate God, growing together in Jesus through authentic community and going together into the world. You’ll find what the opportunity is, where it takes place, and who to contact.
For those volunteer opportunities that take place in both Kettering and Xenia, we’ve notated the Xenia contact with an “X” and Kettering contact with a “K."
