Jesus came not to be served, but to serve others. Our volunteer teams offer an opportunity to serve others by using the unique gifts and talents God has placed in you.
Whether you love to smile and welcome others, teach young children, or play on the worship team, we would love for you to join one of our teams! We believe in the potential of each person and empower volunteers to use their talents to the fullest. Serving is also how we build relationships with others and participate in advancing God’s kingdom.
Check out the serving opportunities below. Sign up today!
