get involved

Volunteers are a vital part of our church community.  God has given each of us unique gifts and abilities, and there are many different ways to serve. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you’re interested in serving.
We're looking for volunteers to serve on our Greeting and Hospitality Teams! If you like talking to, offering help to, and shaking hands with new people, the Greeting Team is perfect for you and needs your help.  If setting up and maintaining our coffee and water table and chatting with people who come up for something to drink is more your style, you will fit right in at our Hospitality Table.  Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page if you’re interested in either serve team.
