Share your talents in any of our many ministries or help start a new ministry to serve new or unmet needs of our congregation or community.
Ushers are much more than God’s Doorkeepers, they are often the first line of hospitality. Worship is more inviting, and more welcoming when a friendly servant of the lord is assisting in taking care of the needs of the congregation. The Usher Ministry is a wonderful way to serve the Lord and meet and greet the congregation.
Greeters help to create a warm, caring and positive environment for our church members, visitors and friends. Greeters are often the first people you meet upon entering our church. In addition, to greeting everyone with a smile and “Good morning/afternoon/evening, greeters answer questions, help distribute church bulletins and provide directions to the various areas of our church (sanctuary, children church, fellowship hall, nursery etc.)
The goal of the music ministry is to produce faithful, effective Ambassadors of the gospel of Jesus. This ministry includes teaching songs and some music theory, while developing dependability and commitment to God and God’s Church. Recognizing that creative talents are a gift from the Holy Spirit, it is our challenge to utilize those gifts in the most professional manner, so that the gospel of Jesus Christ, God may be glorified.
