Sunday Mornings, Wednesday Jubilee Night's, and the simple running of the Church also need help. Opportunities are listed below. Volunteering helps you meet more people and build deeper relationships.
Everything takes time and money and the ways to help financially are below.
This Church runs on People!
Making Our Services Work
Setup & Takedown
Volunteers arrive Sundays before Church to arrange the chairs. Special services might include tables, holiday elements.
Volunteers are asked to arrive at church early, follow directions to make coffee and kids juice, set up for post-service fellowship with cups etc, and then clean up after the fellowship time.
Ushers & Greeters
Volunteers arrive at church early, and welcome people as they come into church. They direct newcomers and their kids to the appropriate programs, explain post service fellowship, and lead them to ushers. Ushers explain how the service runs. After the service they attempt to help them make connections.
Our largest volunteer need is running three programs for Children up to Grade Six during the service. Volunteers might tell stories, lead short discussions or assist in crafts, music, drama and more. Vulnerable Sector Checks are paid for.
Making Our Worship Work
If Music is your thing there might a place on one of our regular music teams or in special songs or special services as part of choirs, readings and sometimes dance.Volunteers practices before the service or during the week for special events.
Sound & Stream
If you have an ear for Sound, an interest in camera's and streaming or can just help keep the screen leading our singing and liturgy then we have opportunities! Volunteers practice with music teams before the service and help startup and shutdown all the technology!
Congregational Prayer unites us in thinking of God's grace, our call to impact society, our need for God to move among us and be with those in need. Volunteers pray with/for us once every few weeks.
Elder & Deacon of Service
Elders meet with the teams to encourage them and pray over them before the service. They assist with pastoral needs that may arise, The Deacon of Service makes the weekly cause known and ensures safe and confidential handling of all gifts.
Making Jubilee Night Work
Food Prep & Setup
Volunteers will work with head cooks to follow recipes and instructions in making the meal for Jubilee night which feeds around 60-80 people.
The need is smaller than on Sundays but Jubilee night nursery allows adults, youth and teens to fully participate in the after meal programs. Vulnerable Sector Checks are paid for.
Adult Ed Leaders
Jubilee night Adult programs are lead/hosted by other Members with the curriculum support of Jubilee night leaders. If you have passion for a topic, others do to, and we help make it a faith growth opportunity for leaders and participants.
Kids and Youth Leaders
While the specific programs change with out changing kids needs. Leaders, helpers, and event supporters for girls, boys and youth programs are always in demand
Making Our Organization Work
Elders support and oversee Jubilee life- providing pastoral care, supporting staff ministry, performing administrative duties, attend a few meetings a month, and have an overall passion for our community's well being.
Deacons support Jubilee's community- both inside and outside the congregation. They do outreach initiatives, financial support of people in need, and oversee offerings/budgets. They attend one or two meetings a month and have an overall passion of our community's well being.
To free the Elders and Deacons to work on the needs of people and the community an Executive helps ensure the running of the Organization today and in the Future by managing policy, communications, staffing, finances and property plans and issues.
Property Administration handle repairs and upgrades, oversee the facilities coordinator, handle rentals of the building, and organize the maintenance of the outside and inside of the property.
Helping our People Thrive
If you like seeing how God makes a difference in peoples lives, in our church and in our community then our prayer team would love you to join them. This team feels the pulse of the spirit and is a great comfort to those who need to know that people are bringing concerns they cant or can barely handle before the Lord regularly. This team meets at least weekly or as the spirit moves them.
We know we are blessed enough to assist others, but we may not always know how. This team helps make building, services and events open and safe for all of us.
When humans get together confusion, frustration and conflict can happen. The restorative practices team uses listening and responding to many voices and views to better equip each of us to work together towards better understanding and stronger relationships.
Churches are not an easy place to work and our personnel committee helps support our staff, ensure they are setup for success, hold them accountable for their jobs and ensure they are fairly compensated in their fields.
Giving is investing.
THIS WEEK'S CAUSE
ONLINE VIA CHURCH CENTER
Every Sunday we choose a cause to highlight and you can give to that or the general budget of the church through CHURCH CENTER. You can do it with minimal information as a guest or signup to CHURCH CENTER to store your credit or VISA Debit card infomration.
Regular giving is easier for people and organizations. CHURCH CENTER can take regular credit and debit amounts that you pick and that you can change at any time.
Under the covers payment fees of 5% on Credit and 2+% on debit get taken off. Our cheapest and most popular regular giving come through fixed direct debit setup through our treasurer using the PDF form, You can cancel before the next scheduled date if your situation changes.
Baskets at the Back of the church.
Some of us have built lifelong habits that don't involve technology or swiping cards. We provide two baskets on a table in the back for the cause of the week and the Church. If you write something on the envelope we can likely accommodate your wishes. Anonymous cash still works!
For our kids we also provide a way to drop off money or a material donation for summer camp or designated yearly cause. Learning that giving makes your life better rather worse is a great thing to learn early.
Passing a collection plate along at Church was fun while it made sense. But not anymore as we aim to stay pandemic ready and careful for those with weakened immunity.
FAITH PROMISE GIVING Forms are done once a year. It gives the Church some idean what giving to expect. They are confidential, changeable and optional. If you do personal budgetting its really just communicating what you were already thinking.
WHEN IN DOUBT TALK TO SOMEONE!
It can sometimes take some time and a couple of tries to match up the right need and the right volunteer. Ask for help!
