Service Groups

Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men. - Eph 6:6-7

Service Groups

Interested in getting more involved? One of the best ways is through serving.  Through service, you can discover how God has uniquely gifted and wired you with talents and passions.  If you feel led to honor God through service and call St. Edward’s your church home, we invite you to make service a part of your worship with us. We hope and pray that by serving with us, you will cultivate more of a Christ-like attitude and lifestyle, that will spill over into other areas of your life.

If you would like to serve, or find out more information about a particular ministry, reach out to the contact associated with the specific area(s) that you are interested in.
