Our heart is to connect with and serve the community. Serving allows us to connect in a way that is beyond words…it is action. In the book of John chapter 13 we see this beautiful picture of Jesus spending some of his last earthly moments with his beloved disciples. He has this intimate moment doing something unheard of...HE WASHES THEIR FEET! This is a big deal!
The Son of God washes the feet of the disciples then he goes on to tell them in John 13:14-15 (CSB):
So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done for you.
There are so many verses that talk about serving. Before washing any feet, Jesus specifically taught his disciples:
It must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” - Matthew 20:26-28 (CSB)
Serving is a natural progression of spiritual maturity. It shows that we are putting others before ourselves for the growth of the Kingdom.
Some ministries at Casting are:
Kids & Youth
Jesus utterly loved kids…and we do too. We have a Sunday program geared specifically to them along with a Wednesday evening gathering they can further learn about Jesus.
"What is a Small Group?" A small group is a group of people who come together outside of the Sunday service to live life together, learn God's Word, connect with each other, care for one another, and serve together to build the Kingdom. A small group is a group of people coming together to build the Kingdom. But there are some major aspects that happen within EACH and EVERY Small Group we have.
Outreach can mean many different things to people. To some it is about the community events that are planned, implemented, and put on. To others it is the small things that are done anonymously to help a child get new shoes, help a hurting family with groceries after a fire, or encourage a couple after a loss. Our outreach team is involved in all of these aspects of life…from the big events to the life impacting little things.
