One of the best ways to experience community and grow in your faith is to get involved in helping others and sharing what God has done in your life. Through selfless service and love, people in our church are bringing hope to our community and beyond. Together we can make a difference that will make an eternal impact in our community.

Let us help you find a place to serve using your gifts and passions all for the glory of God! We have more than 100 different opportunities to serve at SBC and nearly 3,000 SBC individuals involved in service opportunities within our church and with our many local ministry partners. Let us help you discover which one is right for you.
