Benefits of Volunteering

  • Volunteering lets us help others
  • Volunteering makes us more generous with our time

  • And most importantly, volunteering is us being obedient to God.

Our volunteer team is an incredible group of people using their gifts and passions to serve God's Kingdom.

And there’s so many different ways and places in the church you can volunteer. From creating a welcoming environment by serving on a Host Team, to introducing the next generation to Jesus by serving on a Student Ministries Team or Children's Ministry Team, to crafting a powerful church service on the Production Team—we are a group of people advancing the Kingdom of God.

There’s opportunities to serve before and after church services, during church services, or during the week, and everywhere in-between.

We want you to start considering where you might best use your talents, gifting, and abilities to serve God’s kingdom.
