Serving others is one of the great privileges of humanity and reflects the character of God in a multi-faceted ways.  Jesus Himself said that He came not to be served but to serve and to be a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28).

In the family of God there many ways to serve one another.  As Jana says above, we cannot meet all the needs of the world, which are many, but if each does what we can and what we should it will add up!

Below is a list of ways you can serve in the Church, the Lock Haven community, and the world.
