i don't know about all those; i just know what service means to me.
service to me is something more than just performing a duty or doing something to help someone.
service is a comittment...to God, to the person, and to myself.
service is a way to help others to bring forth the glory of God.

service is providing help to someone without expectations.

S = sacrifice your time and yourself for another person's need.
E = everyone should be in service to everyone else.
R = rise above the world's view of "me, myself and i."
V = vital: service is vital in this fallen world.
I  = instant feeling of joy when you help someone in need.
