Responsibilities

Sunday morning worship is the furnace that fires up every other ministry of Greenbelt. This ministry is a crucial part of our discipleship pathway where we hope to see people regularly attend Sunday worship, find a LifeGroup to join, and serve in a ministry to be a blessing to others. These three components, we believe, help people grow in their relationship with Christ. Our social media presence has become the new “foyer” of the church. Most people learn of us and connect with us first through social media before ever visiting the church in person.
