A Community That Serves
1 Corinthians 12:27 reminds us that "Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it."
Part of what it means to belong to the body of Christ is connecting with others to serve His church. Each opportunity to serve is important; each has value. Too many people just want to be church consumers. But at Redemption Hill, we believe we are most joyful and fulfilled when we are serving as the hands and feet of Jesus.
So where do you fit? Where would you best connect?
Check out the list of serving areas below and see what might be a good fit for you!
Let's Serve together.
Info Desk: Do you like to help others? The Info Desk is our frontline for showing hospitality to first-time guests and regular attenders. Info Desk Volunteers connect, provide information, and assist to make sure that each person coming through the doors has a welcoming experience.
Hospitality Team: Do you like meeting new people, making them feel welcome, and helping them get where they need to be? The Hospitality Team is best described by Romans 12:13 to “Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.” Team members are assigned an area of the building before the worship service to roam and be hospitable and friendly. These volunteers are looking to create connections with others, answer questions, provide directions to the right area, and assist as needed.
Child Check-In: The safety and care of the children in our church is a top priority. One of the ways that we help provide a secure environment is having parents electronically check in their kids (ages birth to 3rd grade) prior to taking them to their room. Volunteers will assist parents in checking in their kids at one of our three check-in stations located in the front lobby and with escorting new parents and children to their classrooms.
Usher: Sometimes it can feel intimidating as a new guest entering the building. The Usher greets those who are entering the auditorium with a smile and a worship guide and assists them in finding a place to sit if needed. In addition, these volunteers may assist in collecting for the offering during the worship service.
Coffee Counter: We believe a warm drink says a lot. The Coffee Haus volunteer provides a hospitable environment in serving coffee and tea to those who attend our service. Volunteers need to come prior to the start of the service(s) to prepare coffee and ensure there are sufficient supplies.
Communion: Communion is a wonderful time of remembrance and community for our body of believers. Volunteers are assigned to one of six designated locations in the auditorium and assist by holding and serving the bread and drink to the people.
Worship Team: We believe that as Christians we are called to exist in a state of constant worship which permeates all of life (I Corinthians 10:31).
While music is only a very small part of our actual worship, it is a very important part. Hundreds of references are to be found in the Bible concerning musical worship, and we believe that the church should often and regularly join together in songs of praise to our God (Psalm 100:2; 149:5; Hebrews 2:12).
We believe that worshipping together allows us to draw close to the presence of God and that it strengthens our affections for him in a profound way. Involvement in the worship ministry is the facilitation of this worship, a service to the people of the church as we draw near to God and He draws near to us (James 4:8).
Sound: The Sound person manages the audio components during the Worship Gathering to ensure that what happens during the service is heard with clarity. Prior experience is not required to volunteer for this position.
Screens: The Screens person manages all of the media on the projector screens during Worship Gatherings. No prior experience required.
Video: The Video person is in charge of the cameras for recording and livestreaming the sermon. They also edit and upload the sermon after second service. No prior experience required.
General Technology Help: If you have experience with technology, but are not sure about serving on Sundays on a regular basis in one of the roles above, we could also use help on a more "project-by-project" basis. If you would like to be contacted periodically to help out on an irregular basis, let us know!
Cleaning Crew: The Cleaning Crew serves the church by maintaining cleanliness and sanitation in the building. Their behind-the-scenes work is of great value in helping to care for our building and care for our people.
Facilities Team: Are you skilled with your hands? With a large complex, there are many needs that can be met. Opportunities such as snow shoveling, painting, carpentry, electrical, and plumbing present themselves periodically in order to have a functioning and comfortable facility for those who attend our worship services and programs. If you have special skill sets in any of these areas, we would love to have you serve as projects and needs arise.
Special Events: Would you be willing to serve on an as-needed basis? Throughout the year, there are special opportunities to serve our church body or our community. Volunteers are needed to do set up, take down, or other tasks. The success of an event is dependent on those who join hands to make it happen.
Missions: Are you excited about how the church reaches out to fulfill the Great Commission within and beyond the walls of our own city? As a church, we endeavor to support local ministries, missionaries, and church planters with meaningful fellowship, significant financial support, and faithful prayer. We desire that our church body be exposed more to God’s heart on missions through the volunteers that serve on our missions team. Being part of our missions team provides opportunities to communicate with our missionaries, assist in meeting needs, and collaborate in moving our missions program more into the hands of our congregation.
Children's Ministry: The words of God in Deuteronomy 6 make it clear that God gives parents the responsibility of educating, training, and nurturing their children in the things of God and the gospel of Jesus. God has given the church the task of assisting parents. Our Children’s Ministry seeks to help connect the home and the church.
In addition, it is a top priority that are children are kept safe and cared for by those who are properly trained.
Volunteers are needed for teaching, assisting in classrooms, and providing care and oversight.
There are many Children’s Ministry opportunities. Children from birth through 3rd grade are invited to participate in our specially designed, age appropriate, learning environments.
- Babyland: Birth to 24 months
- Toddlerville: Ages 2 & 3
- Beginner Buddies: Ages 4 - Kindergarten
- Primary Pals: Grades 1, 2, 3
Redemption Hill Youth Ministry (RHYM): Our youth ministry has a twofold goal: to bring students To Jesus and to bring students Up in Jesus. This means that we are eager to connect with students who have never set foot in a church before, hoping to see them place their faith in Christ for the first time, and we are eager to connect with students who are at church all the time, eager to assist them in maturing in their faith.
Teen ministry is not for any particular age or personality - we believe teens need mentors and role models of all ages. We have many roles within the youth ministry for volunteers with many experience levels and schedule flexibilities - from weekly teaching/mentoring roles, to irregular roles such as making snacks or providing occasional transportation. Let us know, and we can find something that fits for you!
