Much of our church's life together is made possible by everyone contributing their gifts, time, and care to serve the community. Here are some opportunities to serve:
If you would like to make an impact on the next generation please consider serving once a month with children's church. You can choose to work with preschoolers through grade 5 depending on your comfort level and preference and we can always use both teachers and assistants. Teachers are given a ready-to-teach lesson but have some lesson prep during the week while assistants can just show up one Sunday a month to help children engage with each other and the lesson. If you have no previous experience with teaching or children, assisting is a great way to learn and develop your own gifts while serving others.
Volunteer once a month to come play with the littlest members of our congregation! Nursery volunteers work together to set up and take down the nursery and play with and care for the children 0-3. We ask those interested to have been part of our church for at least 6 months before volunteering for nursey.
Volunteer with our youth who are in middle school and high school. This is an opportunity to get to know and invest in the lives of these young people. There are opportunities to help out on Friday nights at Youth Group (with leading small groups, supervising large group times, bringing snack, etc.) and occasional opportunities on Sunday mornings as well.
Come a few minutes early one Sunday per month to set up the welcome table and greet everyone as they enter. Ushers are responsible for helping visitors connect with anything they need (children's church, nursery, accessible seating, translation, etc.) and making everyone feel at home. Ushers also collect and count the tithes and help answer questions and pass out information.
Spanish Translation Ministry
Are you bilingual in Spanish and English? Have you wanted to use your language skills to bless God's kingdom? We are in need of more translators for our Sunday morning service, to translate the announcements and sermon into Spanish so that our Spanish-speaking congregants can hear and receive the message. Volunteers receive the sermon notes the night before so they can review it and look up any unfamiliar words, so they can be prepared to translate the sermon on Sunday morning.
* Service opportunities involving minors will require going through LiveScan.
