Get Involved

How Do I Get Involved?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for service and fellowship. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Greater Providence. Your church needs your help now and urgently so. We have many ministries that are not doing what they have the potential to do because they need You! You must join in and help make this church God’s best.
