SERVE IN OUR MINISTRIES

Several internal ministries couldn’t exist as they do without the commitment of the many volunteers who foster transformation through their God-given talents and abilities.

 

 

 

 

CARE

Spiritual gifts are used and not wasted as we share the transforming love of Christ through care. The Holy Spirit uses our efforts to change hearts. If you have a passion for walking with others in hard times, you may want to consider becoming a Partner in Care or a Stephen Minister.

Contact: Rick Waters, Pastor of Care

CHILDREN’S VOLUNTEERS

Our children’s ministry program exists to introduce children to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them to live their whole lives in response. We do so by building Christ-centered relationships, teaching a Bible-centered curriculum, and participating in missional activities.

Anyone who is interested in serving in this ministry MUST complete their Safe Sanctuaries. You can find a list of requirements here.

Contact: Julia Varela, Children’s Minister
