Serve others

Ministry Teams

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”.  

1 Peter 4:10

Ministry Teams

Our Children & Youth Teams are quite important as we place a high value on including young people as an integral part of our congregation. This team includes Nursery (Birth to preK), Hope4Kids (Kinder to 5th Grade) and Youth (6th to 12th Grade). All volunteers on this team must be background cleared.

Our Hospitality Team oversees church decor and preparations for special events including social lunches such as the Chili Cook off, Easter, and Christmas. No event is too small or too large for this team to plan, coordinate, and serve. They also ensure the church is restocked on supplies each week.

We enjoy diverse music (old, new and updated) to help engage worshipers from all church/musical backgrounds. Sundays include a mix of traditional hymns, popular worship songs, and modern Christian tunes. Our Worship Team includes musicians, singers, projection, online broadcasts, and sound system. You do not need to be musically inclined to join this team!
