In the Community
Caring for Those Around Us

Serve...For the Community

Christian People Go - For the glory of God we share the Gospel, by word and deed, with a world in need of grace and hope. We serve people according to their needs and our abilities, and welcome them into our family of faith.


There are countless ways to serve God and Others. A Christian may have deep doctrinal conviction without service, but no Christian can be vibrant without service to God and others. 

We support and serve at many community organizations, local ministries, and international missions. If you are interested in serving in any of these areas, please contact the church office at ministries@oursaviourjax.org and we will put you in touch with the appropriate ministry leader.
