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?
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” John 12:26
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.
Here’s what you can do:
- Check out the different options below, then click on “Volunteer” to get started or contact the Team Leaders in the specific area you’re interested in! We promise it will be fun!
Online Chat Rooms
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.
Contact Patrick Erzinger if you’re ready to join this team!
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!
The welcoming team is the first impression of our church, and you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. We’re looking for friendly faces to welcome people to our church. Contact Pam Passalano if you’re ready to join this team!
If you’re friendly and outgoing, join the Follow Up Team to help our visitors feel at home at The Village. Sometimes it takes a little encouragement from a friend to feel comfortable and get connected. Contact Shannon Wujek to be part of the Follow Up Team.
The Village Seneca Campus will be opening September 20, 2020 with an 11 am service at 121 W Lincoln St, Seneca, IL. If you are interested in helping with the launch, contact Sarah O’Sullivan, Executive Pastor.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this team is currently on break. We are currently using sealed pre-made communion cups.
Help with communion, which is the bread and juice – prepare the trays with the bread and juice in cups, hand them out during services, and clean up. It’s easy! Contact Ed to find your spot.
Coffee Center / Special Events
Due to COVID-19 restrictions this team is currently on break.
This important ministry creates a friendly atmosphere by providing a fresh cup of hot coffee, tea or sweet lemonade before each service! Contact Joanne Joutas.
The Special Event Team helps plan events, set-up/breakdown, and prepare food for the events. Contact Sarah O’Sullivan.
Pulse Student Ministries
Pulse Student Ministries is a place where we connect students in a fun community. This group is for 5th – 8th graders (Pulse Jr.) and high school students (Pulse Sr.). If you’re interested in being a leader or helping with this ministry, contact Brittany Sandeno or Nick Sandeno to see if it’s right for you!
Communications / Social Media and Outreach
Many people find our church because of the community signs. 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!
Contact Karol Scott if you’re interested in any of these teams!
If administration is your thing and you would like to help in the church office, then contact Shannon Wujek.
Building Maintenance Team
This team helps keep our church home in tip-top shape. If you’re handy and like projects or fixing things, then this is the team for you! During the winter months we also need help shoveling snow and salting the sidewalks to keep everyone safe. Contact Tim Juskiewicz if you’re interested!
Sometimes it’s nice to just be outdoors. Our Landscape Team keeps our grounds looking great. If you have a green thumb and want to share your gift, contact Susan Juskiewicz.
Be a first responder to assist with medical emergencies and other situations requiring a plan of action. Volunteers need to be trained in First Aid and be CPR certified for the medical team. Contact Heather Houck if you’re interested!
