As we worship God and learn together, we are called to respond to God through our work in the church and in the world. Whether it is through serving on a Council, committee, or work group; whether you are visiting the sick or serving as an usher; whether you are working as a small group leader or providing financial support to the church, these are all ways of serving as stewards. Using our gifts to serve is the essential third step in the process of growing to spiritual maturity.
