We respond to God by investing our lives in the spiritual, physical, and material needs of others.
We believe that real service is not found in painful drudgery (i.e. “I serve because I ought to”), but rather as a missional opportunity (i.e. “I believe in the mission of Warehouse, and my service allows the mission to be fulfilled. I serve because I want to.”).
“When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices.” Proverbs 11:10
The most rewarding service at Warehouse takes place when a person serves in an area where they are gifted and passionate. When that happens, not only does the server benefit, but the whole community benefits as well (Ephesians 4:16). This is the exciting interplay of dynamic service.
Our heart is to live out our calling to inconvenience ourselves, so that our friends and neighbors can flourish (Luke 10:25-37). As followers of Jesus, a life of service is the countercultural ethos that we hope defines us.

Serving In Our Community
We believe everyone has a particular gift or skill that can be utilized to help the church function beautifully and accomplish our mission (Romans 12:3-8). When you serve out of who you are, not only does it benefit others, but it’s also a critical part of your own spiritual formation process. If you don’t know how you are wired to serve, begin by taking this spiritual gift inventory.
As you consider how you want to serve, keep in mind that Jesus never promised that following him would be easy, but he did promise that it would bring joy. Committing to serve regularly requires denying yourself (Luke 9:23), but we do so joyfully, because investing in others is an essential part of our spiritual formation process that leads to a fully alive existence.
We have lots of ways to get plugged in by serving in our community! Let us know the areas you’d be willing to serve in by clicking here.

Get Involved Outside Our Walls
CARING FOR RESILIENT CHILDREN
Jesus remembers the children saying, “The Kingdom belongs to such as these.”
Now is the time to surround youth with a village. From local foster care and adoption, to holistic community development in the Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe, partnering with Ashley Park PreK-8, and the promotion of high-quality art education, W242 is committed to affirming the gifts, talents, and potential of resilient children and youth as leaders in this generation and the next.
WELCOMING FAMILIES AFFECTED BY INCARCERATION
Jesus knows the pain of incarceration saying, “You visited me in prison.”
Now is the time to welcome local parents and youth into a restorative community. From furnishing apartments, to letter writing, providing transportation and support groups led by practitioners, to the annual Advent banquet with families whose loved ones are incarcerated, W242 is committed to dignified friendships where those unlike each other grow into an understanding that all of us are affected by incarceration. When one part of the body suffers, we all suffer. Dr. King said, “Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.”
