Weekly & Servants

Service Opportunities

Door Greeters: Members of our congregation greet everyone with a smile and a handshake as people enter the building. Greeters provide hospitality, welcoming people to worship and directing them as needed.

Welcome Center Hosts: At the Welcome Center all worshipers complete a Connection Card; guests receive a guest bag; and the host/hostess there can provide further directions as needed to newcomers.

Set Up Team: Teams of two to four people prepare the worship space prior to each service. This includes setting up microphones, speakers, the video equipment, and the altar—the focal point of our worship.

Ushers: Ushers create a hospitable atmosphere by carrying out various tasks before, during and after the service (passing out Bibles, collecting the offering, ushering people forward for Communion and the like) so that the focus of the service can be on God’s Word and Sacrament.

Audio/Visual: Audio/visual involves forwarding the slides during worship or monitoring the soundboard for the musicians as well as finding a quick solution to any problems that might occur with the sound or video during worship.

Children’s Church: Volunteers help with music and crafts and lead the Bible story for the children during our worship time. Children age two to sixth grade are welcome to attend Children’s Church.

Lay Readers: Lay readers read the Old Testament and New Testament Scripture readings during the worship service.

Communion Assistants: Two individuals assist Pastor Vern in distributing the elements to those communing and collecting the empty cups.

Take Down Team: This happens after the service and involves putting all our items back into the storage room and leaving the facility as good or better than we found it.

Counters: Under the direction of Kathy Choitz, our Financial Secretary, two to three individuals count the offering each week and prepare it for deposit. This area of service requires a confidentiality agreement and the ability to record information accurately so that each contributor can receive a statement at the end of the year for tax purposes.
