JOIN A TEAM
Church of Our Saviour is a community rooted in a culture of Connecting to Christ and Community. We seek to introduce people to Jesus' love and message. It starts with how we serve one another as a family. Each of our volunteer teams gives you opportunities to connect, learn, and grow as an integral part of our church family. It's time to say yes to finding your place!
If there's any additional information about your personal skills or background that you would like to offer please let us know.
Ushers & Greeters
The Hospitality Team supports the Sunday worship gatherings each week: before, during, and after the service. It sets the tone for Sunday worship gatherings by creating a space where everyone feels welcome, seen, and encouraged when they walk in the door. We also connect visitors and regular attendees to the answers, resources, and support they need during their time at Our Saviour. Hospitality opportunities include: greeting, ushering, and connecting people during our coffee time.
This “behind the scenes” team, known as Altar Guild, performs a service that provides for a very special connection with God. Each Saturday, Altar Guild prepares a sacred table for the consecration of Holy Communion during Sunday’s service. Responsibility also includes preparation for mid-week service, and other special services, e.g., weddings and funerals. Teams work on a rotating basis.
Serve at the Altar
Acolyte, Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM) - Jane Lowe
To serve at the altar is truly a privilege. It allows you to interact during service in a unique way; either as an Acolyte (prepares the bread and wine), a Crucifer (carries the cross) or as a Lay Eucharistic Minister (LEM administers Communion at the Altar Rail). No matter which position, you will be blessed by serving the Lord in this way.
Reading the Lord’s word with meaning and intonation can really make a difference in the worship experience. Readers receive the readings by Wednesday and can practice the Scripture so that it can be delivered effectively and purposefully.
Praying for someone can be truly comforting and uplifting. Prayer Team invites the person to share (if they want) confidentially their prayer concern and simply prays for them in the name of Jesus Christ. Prayer is offered during communion at our 10:30 am worship service, though we want to expand this opportunity to our 9:00 am worship service
10:30 am Worship (0 yrs - 4 yrs)
The blessing of God’s littlest ones in our church is a sight to behold! This team
provides encouragement, wonder, discovery, and play opportunities for these impressionable and energetic members of our church family. Volunteers will need to complete Safeguarding Children’s Training per Diocesan requirements.
10:30 am Worship (4 yrs through 2nd grade) - Kaeley Childs
Each week, a simple Bible lesson is taught to help guide these children in their relationship with Christ by providing a loving atmosphere where they can be fully accepted as children created in the image of God. Volunteers will need to complete Safeguarding Children’s Training per Diocesan requirements.
Do you have an interest in serving in an emergency? The Safety Team is a group of folks who have agreed to be available during this, hopefully, highly unlikely situation. There will be some training in preparation to serve on this team.
Worship at 10:30 am - David Childs
Perhaps you would consider worshiping the Lord on Sunday mornings with the musical talent He has given you. Typical instrumentation includes guitar, piano, drums, bass guitar, violin, flute, vocals. The Praise Band would be happy to have you join them in praising the Lord.
Worship at 9:00 am - Helen Wheeler
Do you play an instrument or sing? The opportunity to worship the Lord in this manner exists by singing with the Choir or being part of a small ensemble, either singing or playing an instrument on special occasions.
Audio & Visual
Worship at 9:00 am and 10:30 am - David Childs
Have you ever wondered who is changing the slides each Sunday? This opportunity to serve is another “behind the scenes” chance to serve. You don’t need to be highly technical to do this, but it helps if you know computers. We will train you to learn the system.
“Office Angels” - Week Days (Mon.-Thurs.)
Being at the “Angel Desk” can get you connected really fast as you learn about the church and what happens here Monday through Thursday. Besides answering the phone, there are often other ways to help us administratively. You can pick a day and a time frame that best suits your schedule. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
