130 is the average number of volunteers needed per-Sunday starting on August 12th. 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, or look at all the options at once and sign-up for multiple opportunities here.
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.
Sunday School helpers are paired up with 2 teachers in a classroom, and assist in activities and classroom management. This commitment is 4 Weeks On, 8 Weeks Off.
Our check-in helpers welcome families as they arrive for Children’s Worship and Sunday School, and make sure each child receives their nametag. Helpers stay for the duration of Sunday School in the hallway to help if children need to go to the restroom.
Teachers and Helpers team up to help children learn the “what” and “why” of the elements of worship.
Nursery volunteers can choose which age group (0-3) and service they would like to volunteer in. This commitment is once every 6 weeks, for one hour.
Nursery workers choose which age group they would most like to serve (0-3), and serve in that age group every other week. This position is paid.

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.
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.
When people are in need of meals, our meal coordinator will first reach out those nearest the family, as well as those who love to be a part of this ministry. If you want to regularly receive the food needs of those in our midst, let us know. Or, if you know of anyone who is in need of meals due to illness, birth, etc., and would like to have them organized through the church, please contact us.
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.
If you are interested in singing or playing an instrument for the Christmas/Easter choir, or during a worship service, let us know! Before rehearsals start for choir / band events, you will be contacted to see if you are available for that time and you can opt in or out as you have availability.
Email us here if you want to be added to the prayer-chain list. There is also a group of Pray-ers that meets on Thursday mornings in the Fellowship Hall from 9-10 a.m. and anyone is welcome to come.
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.
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!
