Chat Room volunteers are a key part to Online Church as they connect with all online participants, answer questions and guide them through the service. You can volunteer to be on the Facebook, YouTube or live.thevillagechristianchurch.com website Chat Room Teams. Volunteers are responsible to check-in 10 minutes before the start of service and serve until 10 minutes after the last service.

Online Church Chat RoomsOnline Tech Team / Worship Team

There are many choices in this area – from musician or vocalist, operating our audio/visual system, or helping with stage design. Joining the band requires an audition, but all other spots are easy to learn and don’t require any previous experience. You can serve as little or as often as your schedule permits!

 

 

Help with video, production slides, lights, special project video, sound or stage design. You’ll need to invest a few hours getting to know the software and then you’ be good to go!

There are auditions for musicians and vocalists twice a year. If you’re interested, contact Sarah Windham.

You're Invited to Online Church With The Village Live Sundays at 9:20 and 10:50 am CSTCommunications / Social Media / Outreach

Many people find our church because of the signs we put out in the community on the weekends. These are a great way to spread the word about our church in Minooka, Channahon and the surrounding communities. 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 really easy and has a huge impact!

Do you like to take pictures? We have different events throughout the year and we love to capture the moments as they happen. Join the Photography Team if you like to have fun while snapping some pics.

Are you on Facebook or Instagram? We are! We love to share what we’re doing on social media and are looking for volunteers to help!
