Made to Serve

At Creekside we don’t want people to simply volunteer to meet the ministry needs of the church. Instead, we believe that God has equipped each person with abilities and gifts to serve the church. It is not our intention to squeeze people into a volunteer role, but to help people use their gifts in a ministry that uniquely fits them – even if we have to start a new ministry. Part of the DNA of our church is that our future will be driven by who God brings us and how those people have been made to serve.

Mission Work

We want every person to believe that Jesus is Lord and Savior. Because of this we actively strive express the love of Jesus to those around us and those around the world. This takes a variety of forms. All of our sermons proclaim the love of Jesus, we encourage our people to show the love of Jesus, and we support various mission work in a variety of ways. Below is a list of our ministry partners and how we work with them.

The Cooperative Program is a unified plan of giving for the missional purpose of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the world and making disciples of all the nations.

9% of all our received money goes to the Cooperative Program.

Embrace Oregon connects caring community members with vulnerable children and families in partnership with the Department of Human Services. They are dedicated to the flourishing of every child.

We provide Welcome Boxes to children awaiting foster homes.

HOPE Coffee exists to prove high quality coffee and invest profits from its sales directly into Christian missions, primarily in Honduras.

We buy, drink, and serve their coffee.

The Villebois Events Committee is an independent committee that serves the greater Villebois Community by organizing and encouraging participation in events.

We support their activities through volunteering and donating.

For over 50 years, Operation Mobilization (OM) has been bringing the message of hope through Jesus Christ to men, women, and children around the world by partnering with local churches through Bible studies, teaching students, building businesses, relief development work, the creative arts and much, much more.

We support an OM missionary with prayer and money.

OUR EKKLESIA

Our Ekklesia is an experiment in Christian community wherein followers of Jesus together form a church without walls, traveling on a journey of faith in which they love wholeheartedly, hope continually, and share God’s revolutionary grace.

We support this church plant through prayer and money.

S.E.R.V.E.

If you are ready to take the next step in church involvement by serving, S.E.R.V.E. is a great place to start. It is a three part process that seeks to help people understand how God has called and equipped them to serve him at Creekside Bible Church.

The first part of the process is to attend a two day (five total hours) class that teaches:

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT MINISTRY

When you are finished with this section you will understand what it means to serve, the purpose of serving, and why you should serve.

THE PROCESS OF DISCOVERING HOW GOD HAS MADE YOU TO SERVE

Just knowing that you ought to serve isn’t good enough. The next step is understanding how you should serve. The second half of the class teaches a specific process for figuring out what God might be calling you to do.

The reflection portion of S.E.R.V.E. is done through an online survey (“servey”) that is designed to take people through the process that is explained in the second section of the class portion of this process. This survey takes approximately two hours to complete and pushes people to consider five important aspects of their lives that will help them see more clearly how God might be calling them to serve.
The final portion of the S.E.R.V.E. process is to meet with an pastors of Creekside Bible Church. This meeting offers you and him the opportunity to discuss how God might be calling you to serve. The point of the conversation is not that the elder tells you what to do, but helps you think through the data that you have generated through the “servey.” It will also allow for you to hear of any ministry opportunities/needs that the church currently has (No worries, if none of these fit you, we will not try to get you to do them anyway!). When the meeting is over the pastor will either put you in contact with the proper ministry leader so that you can begin serving or, if no current ministry fits, continue to work with you to see what God might want to do with you in a future ministry.
