El Boletín Informativo de la Iglesia
No Te Pierdas Las Bendiciones De Servir
A veces, en nuestro fervor bíblico para enfatizar que la salvación no es por obras, no somos capaces de apreciar plenamente que hemos sido salvados para hacer buenas obras (Efesios 2:10). De hecho, Dios te ha colocado en tu iglesia con el fin de que tú puedas ser edificado, de modo que puedas trabajar y servirle. Si nos permitimos seguir siendo sedentarios esto significa que estamos descuidando el mismo propósito de Dios para nuestra salvación y de otros. Al servir, sigues y te comportas como Jesús y con eso también lo glorificamos. Si usted está interesado en servir como líder de una célula, coordinador de voluntarios, equipo de bienvenido o en cualquier capacidad, por favor, marque el lado reverso de la tarjeta de asistencia y díganos en que área de servicio le gustaría participar o contáctese con Pastor Tom Martínez al 407.556.5016 o
