130 is the average number of volunteers needed per-Sunday at NSF. That means there are lots of different roles you can play, and we want you to serve where you are able to best use your gifts. Whether you have one hour, once a year, or want to help every week, there are ways to get involved. Feel free to read descriptions of roles below, and contact the people in the areas that you are interested in serving with.

Bake Communion Bread

We bake bread in the kitchen at church about once a quarter, and it is always fun to have more bakers to help! If you want to bake with us, or bake a batch at home and bring it in, just let us know.

Make Food for Events

Throughout the year, we host events of all shapes and sizes, and they all involve lots of help in the kitchen. Whenever we are about to host an event, we will contact you to see if you are interested in bringing food or serving food. There is no obligation by signing up here.

Help with Events

If you want to be contacted when we host events to help with the behind the scenes prep (decorating, helping with registrations, etc.) let us know here!


Each year, we have around 12 Fellows come to Chattanooga who are in need of a host family to stay with for their 9 months here. The Chattanooga Fellows Program equips recent college graduates to faithfully find their vocation, commit to community, explore their faith, and practice civic responsibility. They are seeking families of any type (empty-nesters, young families, ect…) that have an extra room in their house and a desire to be a caring and open place for a thoughtful recent graduate to live.

Pray for a Student

Pray for Me Campaign

Pray for Me Campaign connects generations in the church through prayer. We encourage all adults to consider praying for a middle or high school student in the school year, and we encourage all students to participate in the campaign. On launch day, each student will pair up with 3 adults (from 3 different generations), and those adults will be their prayer team for the school year. While it is incredibly simple, it is also incredibly important.

Sunday School Teacher

PreK-5th Grade
One Semester

Sunday School teachers are assigned to one class for one semester, and they are paired up with a co-teacher.  Teachers can be spouses, friends, roommates, etc. All lessons plans and materials are prepared for you and ready in the classrooms each Sunday.

Men's Breakfast

Once a month, we host a Men’s Discipleship Breakfast for men of all ages to hear teaching and get to know one another better. If you are interested in making food for this, you can do it once or as often as you would like. Just let us know your availability. Please plan to prepare enough for 40 men.
