Serving At CAC
Christ Alone Church Serving & Ministries Opportunities
Christ Alone Church’s (CAC) mission statement is to introduce people to the life-transforming Jesus, and we are a church committed to fulfilling this mission through serving and having a focus on missions in the community.
Below is a list of the various serving and ministry opportunities that exist at CAC, and included are the names of the people that lead the ministries. The ministries are broken up into three sections:
- Session Approved & Internally Developed Ministries
- Session Approved & Affiliated Ministries
- Member/Attendee Linked Ministries
CAC encourages all members and attendees to pray and to spend some time in thought regarding their gifts and passions and determine where their gifts may best be used in service of God. If the listing below isn’t a match for someone’s passions or gifts CAC strongly encourages that their gifts be put to use in new areas that they can bring to Session for review.
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. ~ Mark 10:45
