Serve at Grace

At Grace, we believe every believer is a minister. One way to minister is to serve in your local church community. We have several ways for you to get involved and get connected at Grace that match your heart and your gifts, from welcoming newcomers, to making coffee, to holding babies. Let us help you get plugged into a place to serve regularly.

Ongoing Opportunities to Serve

What are your Spiritual Gifts and how are you using them at Grace? We love to ask each other these questions as we grow in understanding of one another and how God has uniquely gifted each of us with gifts that serve the Body of Christ (the church) and those in need around us to glorify Him and His Kingdom.

 

Below, you’ll find opportunities to get connected within our ministry areas, each of which includes a description of the gifts well-suited for service within the ministry. Complete the interest form at the bottom of this page to get started.

Adult Discipleship
The Adult Discipleship Communities at Grace seek people to encourage, edify and educate while providing connection and partnership with others in similar life stages as you. All groups are interactive, with a teacher delivering content, followed by time with others in conversation, prayer, and connection. Our teaching curriculum is highly application-driven to help foster relational discipleship. We aim to come alongside the people of Grace and help them become more like Christ in all of life.

Hospitality

Grace is a large church, and it can feel overwhelming to someone who is new. For those who come to Grace, hospitality looks like:

  • being given a ride on the golf cart from the parking lot
  • receiving a “We’re glad you’re here!” and a smile at the door
  • having someone to answer your questions
  • a bag of cookies and an invitation to conversation
  • getting a cup of coffee and donuts.

In general, it’s helping everyone feel seen and welcomed when they come to worship at Grace. It’s being like Christ to those around you. If you’re interested in volunteering in hospitality, select “Hospitality” in the form below.
