Every person has been gifted by God. Are you using your gifts to build God’s kingdom through the church? A church is more than a building and the leaders that work in it. A church – Ingomar Church – is a place where people find God and their lives are changed!

When we serve at church, we contribute to something bigger than ourselves. We actively minister to others through our service. And in the process, we are better for it!

What is your passion? What are your skills? How might they intersect in serving others through Ingomar Church?
