Make a Difference through Service
God put you on this earth to know Him, grow in Him and make a difference for Him. At Knott Avenue you can make a difference for God’s kingdom through serving.
Mark 10:45 - For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Galatians 5:13 - For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
When you serve, you are like Jesus in “other-centeredness” and love. To Get Going in service is to find a place to meet a need with the spiritual gift(s) that God has given you. There may be a need for something at Knott Avenue that God has specifically built a desire in your heart and gifted you to make a difference.
Throughout 2017, Spiritual Gift Assessment Classes will be offered to help you understand what God teaches us about Spiritual Gifts and how they are to be used. Once you take these classes you will have a better insight of how God has specifically equipped you to serve others. Knott Avenue staff will show you ministry opportunities in the church that correspond with certain spiritual gifts so that you can make the match to make a difference.
We also want to make a difference in our community as we will be partnering with Love Anaheim - loveanaheim.org and Love Buena Park - lovebuenapark.com on projects around our church community to meets needs in the power and love of God. You can go directly to their websites and sign up. In the fall we will be making a difference by serving Orangeview JH with a workday project.

Thank you to the 150+ volunteers who came out and served on campus for our Work Day, Saturday March 18. Our campus looked amazing for all the visitors on Easter Sunday, largely in part to your efforts.
