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.

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.

Provide Meals for Those in Need

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.

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.

Sing in the Choir / Play in the Band

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.

Be Added to the Prayer Chain

Get Emails as Prayer Needs Come Up

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 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.

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!


Welcome People on Sundays

If you have the gift of hospitality, and making people feel welcome, we would love for you to be a part of our greeter team. Greeters serve once a quarter, before the worship service of their choice begins.


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.

Evening Service

Our evening service will start August 12, at 5 pm. If you are interested in learning more about it, or volunteering during that time – click the form below.
