Our congregation represents a commitment by many individuals to work in partnership for the greater good. There are lots of ways to serve and give back to our community.

Sunday Mornings

We would love for you to help with coffee setup, snacks for coffee hour, or cleanup. These are easy ways to get involved. Greeters and Worship Associates are also important roles on Sunday mornings. Contact our Office Administrator to sign up!

Special Events

Another way to volunteer your time and talent is to help at one-time events like an All-Church work day or a multi-generational social event. Or you can provide childcare for a church meeting or event so that parents can attend. These activities are organized by our various councils. Contact the church office with your interest.

Serve with Grace

When you volunteer, we hope you find the experience fulfilling. One way you can ensure that is to “serve with grace.” That means you consider your gifts and discern where and how to use them. When you use your gifts, you will be nourished, not drained, and serving will become a spiritual practice.

We also support one another in our volunteer commitments by following a covenanted relationship on our councils, which helps us to build closer interpersonal ties and remain mindful of the spiritual nature of the work we do together.
