Serving Opportunities

At Blue Ridge we believe that serving is not only an appropriate response to God, it is also an avenue to encounter Him in new ways and experience spiritual growth. When you are answering God's calling to serve, He equips and fills you. When you serve it's much more than pouring out what's been poured into you, it's a way to move closer to God.
