This is Justin and Holly. They have attended Connect Church for 13 years! They serve across multiple ministries and Justin became a Deacon this year.

What have you learned about yourself and others through serving at Connect Church? 
“The phrase “blessed to be a blessing” definitely applies to helping serve in our church. I have learned the importance of relationships and how we can grow in Christ through those deep relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ. The biggest surprise is the continued blessings we receive by serving. Seeing growth and answered prayers in myself and others is a huge blessing.

We have ministered in Connect Kids by serving in the Nursery/Pre-K department and VBS. We are now helping teach an adult Truth Academy class. It has made a huge impact on me spiritually because of the conversations and accountability gained in our adult class. It has helped me grow stronger in my faith and grow strong relationships that help keep me accountable. It is awesome to know that brothers and sisters are worshipping together, praying for each other and living life together.”

If you could encourage someone else to serve at our church, what would you say? 
“I would say do it! You will be blessed beyond measure by serving. You will get to know people that you may not have previously known and develop stronger relationships because of it.”

Thank you for being a big part of our church and helping people find and follow Jesus!
