Without a doubt, First Baptist Church of Glenarden is a large church. If you wanted to, you could slip in and out each Sunday and never be noticed. But God desires so much more for His church.

That’s why you are so important. God has gifted everyone with special talents and resources to further His kingdom here on earth. But it all starts by getting involved!

Whether you have lots of time to volunteer each week or only a few hours every once in a while, consider making the kind of impact that only you can make. Decide for yourself the length of time you’ll serve. We promise that you’ll meet new friends, grow spiritually and maybe even learn something about yourself.

Ready to give it a try? Click the volunteer job announcements, complete an application and background check for each open position. If you need help determining your passions, interests and/or spiritual gifts, take this short spiritual gifts test at http://www.spiritualgiftstest.com/test/adult.

God is doing something special here at FBCG. Thank you for getting involved and giving back!
