Ways to Serve and Opportunities to Volunteer

Children's Choir

We are thrilled to introduce a musical program designed for students in grades 3 through 12. Our Children’s Choir is dedicated to nurturing both musical talents and the spirits of our youth. Rehearsals take place every Sunday at 9 am, just before our Worship Service. This program offers an ideal platform for children to explore the joys of singing while enriching their spiritual journey through the transformative power of music. With numerous opportunities to perform throughout the year, we extend a warm invitation to all families to embark on this melodious adventure with us, creating cherished memories together.

Coffee Hour Hosts

As a Coffee Host, you are not just serving coffee and treats; you are a reflection of God’s love, spreading warmth and kindness to everyone who walks through our doors. Serving in this role is not only easy but also incredibly rewarding. If you have a passion for hospitality and a desire to impact our church community positively, we invite you to become a Coffee Hour Host. Your efforts will help us continue to create an atmosphere of love, fellowship, and connection that defines our church.

We have openings every 3rd Sunday of the month. Sign up to set up/clean up, or to just drop off morning goodies. Let’s continue to make Sunday mornings at church a time of warmth, fellowship, and celebrating the joy of God’s love.

Sunday School Teachers

The mission of our Sunday School program is to share the splendor of God’s love, acquaint children with cherished Bible stories, passages, prayers, foundational hymns, and more, guiding them on their personal paths of faith. Our classes are tailored for kids entering Pre-K through grade 6. Programming content and resources are provided for each class, making it seemless for volunteers to provide engaging and age-appropriate lessons. We welcome those interested in volunteering either for the program year or on an as-needed basis, to help teach our Sunday School program, including parents from our children’s and youth ministries, former school teachers, and individuals knowledgeable about the Bible. Our volunteer teachers undergo background checks and follow our Safe Haven Policy to ensure a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults, fostering inclusivity within our community.
