Volunteers make ministry possible. Find out ways you can volunteer your time and talents for the family of faith within the walls of the church.
Find Your Place to Serve
Volunteers make everything at the church– Sunday morning and weekday activities– possible. You can choose to be a greeter, welcoming event volunteer, or note writer on the Hospitality Team or donate your musical talents on our Worship Team or in our Cantate and Bell Choir. There are truly so many ways you can get involved.
Volunteer positions are available to fit any schedule. There are roles for Sunday mornings, weekdays and special events throughout the year. You can choose to volunteer weekly, monthly, or as needed. Appropriate training and guidance will be provided, so please be encouraged to try something new!
Additional information is provided below. If you would like general information about a volunteer opportunity or have a new idea about a way to help, please fill out the form below and someone will be in contact with you.
All you need is an active mind and body, ready to play and have fun with our children. You do not need to be a biblical scholar. You simply need to love God and have a desire to help children grow in their faith. Activities in the Children’s Ministry build a faith foundation for every child that will last a lifetime. Lessons and crafts are prepared ahead of time for each group, so you are not responsible for coming up with a lesson or the supplies.
All areas below are for working with Pre-Kindergarten to 5th grade and a background check is required prior to serving. New volunteers will shadow an active volunteer to become familiar with the responsibilities.
Children’s Area Greeters Volunteers provide a smiling face and a friendly greeting to guests and members; directing families to the correct rooms and assisting in getting Sunday School off to a great start. Greeters serve once a month before service from 8:55 – 9:25 a.m. or 10:45 – 11:15 a.m.
Children’s Ministry Prep Team Help prepare for all of the fun to take place on Sunday mornings in the Children’s Area. Volunteers work on Thursday afternoons stocking, cutting out items for crafts, and organizing materials for Sunday School.

Children’s Teaching Assistant This group helps teachers with a variety of things during class (crafts, games, etc.), allowing the teacher to focus on the lesson. Volunteers are needed for two hours, once a month, which could be on Sunday morning or for Wednesday Night Alive.
Special Needs Shepherd If you have a passion for supporting people with disabilities, you can become a “shepherd” for a child with special needs. Your help will allow parents to worship together while their child is supported and encouraged in the Children’s Ministry.
