Whether it's teaching a Sunday school class, singing in the choir, serving in the nursery or helping in the Welcome Center on Sunday morning, there is a place for you to serve your church! We’re here to help you find a place to serve in your area of interest, passion and giftedness. There are many opportunities spanning every ministry with varying degrees of time commitment to fit your schedule.
Imagine what our families, church, and community would be like if we all took the time to do what God uniquely designed each of us to do in serving others. The ripple effect of each person making their unique contribution would result in a revolution of Christ's love being felt in tangible, life-changing ways. Whether you have lots of time to volunteer each week or only a few hours every once in a while, consider making the kind of impact that only you can make. Your life will never be the same!
