As God’s children we are all wired for service.
God is calling each of us to serve, but sometimes we don’t know where to start.
Wired 4 Service is our church’s intentional effort to help people understand how their spiritual gifts, their passion, their abilities, and their life experiences uniquely equip them to do something special for the kingdom of God. W4S is a core team that wants to walk alongside you as you search for how you fit into the mission that God has given Argyle UMC to transform the world one life at a time. You may be wanting to hear God’s call for your life. You may be looking to find an existing ministry to connect to in our church. You may have an idea for a ministry and what to know what your next steps might be. These are just some of the ways that Wired 4 Service can be a part of your spiritual journey to discover and live into how you are “Wired 4 Service.”
We invite you pray about the ways God may be calling you into mission and service and be part of the “one-life-at-a-time” mission of Argyle UMC. The first step in growing deeper in faith through service, if through relationships and our core team wants to get to know you and your passion. Maybe engaging in the story of Jesus’ walk to Emmaus during worship will inspire you to take the next steps in your own faith journey. Maybe participating in community misison work with your family will help to quench your thirst to give back to our neighbors. Or maybe you sense that Vacation Bible School or an introduction to our youth group is what’s missing in your child or teenager’s life.
Whatever path you choose for your journey, know that hundreds others are seeking hope and healing—just like you— and that we are a community of faith committed to living and loving like Jesus.
