There is no thrill like being used by God to make a difference in other people’s lives. God wants you to live your life bigger than yourself. Everything you do for the Lord is ministry and is a big deal to God. God is great at using the small things you do and making incredible miracles out of them.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
When you start serving where you are, you add value to other people’s lives. That’s why Shoreline is making it easy for you to get involved at the church.

Then watch what happens!
By volunteering at Shoreline, you’ll meet new people, discover new dimensions of your greater purpose and God’s plan for your life, get more fulfillment, advance your own personal ministry, have fun, help organize and make a difference in the lives of others.
Open your heart to live significantly
Rekindle and commit to the idea that God wants to use you to make a positive difference in the lives of others. If everything in your life is about you, it’s out of balance.
When the early church started, the Bible says that the Holy Spirit fell on ALL people.
“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” – Acts 2:17
Be aggressive about discovering your purpose
Everything has a purpose. God will speak to you and show you what your purpose is.
Push through your inadequacies
God uses each of us, in spite of ourselves. The only people God has available are people with inadequacies, which should not be a barrier. It’s a level playing field.
Start right where you are
To serve the Lord God, you do not need to become a missionary in another country. You never know what God will do through what you do wherever you are.
Don’t be afraid of your past
Everyone whom God has ever used had a past. God never wastes a hurt except to use it to help make a difference in someone else’s life.
Take the next step
Don’t stay on the sideline as a fan. Get in the game! How can you get in the game at Shoreline? Pick up your mobile phone, type in “mad” and text it to 313131. Our staff will follow up with you. You can make a difference!
