At Countryside, we believe ministry is vital to the life of the church body. Yet, instead of viewing people as a means to get ministry done, our philosophy is to use ministry as a means to get "people done". This means that ministries are a crucial platform for believers to utilize their spiritual gifts to serve one another and our community. But it also functions as a beautiful accelerant for spiritual growth as serving brings about opportunities for learning and spiritual development in the lives of those who serve. Without ministry opportunities, the church becomes little more than a spiritual food service. With this approach, we have divided our Countryside ministries into three categories: Outreach, Grow, and Connect. Each of these categories provides platforms of service for those who are members and have made a pronounced commitment to this local assembly. You can find many of these ministries as well as how to get involved by choosing the desired category listed below.
