You’ve Got Skills

Being a volunteer is fun! Did you know that God has uniquely created you and given you gifts, and it’s important to use those gifts to serve others?

Each one of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10

We want to help you find the place to make that happen! Don’t just sit on the sidelines – everyone gets a chance to play at The Village! Our church would not be possible without the help of MANY volunteers.

Many people find our church because of the community signs.  If you’re on the Sign Team, you would put a sign out in your neighborhood on Friday night and pick it up on Sunday afternoon/evening. It’s easy and has a huge impact!

Like to take pictures? We love to capture moments as they happen and share them to celebrate all that God is doing. Join the Photography Team if you like to have fun while snapping pics. You don’t need a professional camera.
