Where Can I Serve?

There are many ministries in which to serve. If you have a desire to serve in any of these areas, please see Pastor Scott or Elders, Bob Hendrix or John Donnellan.

 

Greeters/Ushers
Your face is the first face members and guests see as they enter SGBF! So put on a smile, grab a handful of bulletins and greet people at the door with a handshake or a hug. You are responsible for giving first time Guests the "Guest Packet", answering questions and handing out bulletins. It takes a keen eye to spot new guests and make them feel welcome! Please linger by the entrance after service has started in order to assist latecomers. Please arrive by 9:3Oam as people often start arriving by 9:45am. This is a great couple's ministry. 

Children's Church Teachers
Currently there is no Children's Church. But, if you feel called to teach our precious children ages
 5 -10 we are certainly happy to talk to you about a teaching position. In the past, a Children's Church curriculum is provided for you which includes a bible lesson, games & crafts. There are quarterly meetings after church on Sundays with the teachers, encouraging the sharing of ideas, concerns and victories. You don't have to be a bible scholar to teach our children - just a love for the Lord and His kids. The teachers rotate on a weekly basis. A  Youth Worker Application needs to be completed and approved by the Leadership. Pastor Scott has the Applications. 

Nursery Ministry
Currently there is no nursery supervision at this time. BUT, we are always in need of caring people (13 years old through Adult) to watch the babies ages 0 -4, during the entire morning service. A Youth Worker Application needs to be completed and approved by the Leadership. Currently we keep the babies busy with a short DVD, music, or giving bottles & snacks. Parents are responsible to change their own child's diapers.
The Nursery Coordinator position responsibilities include: recruiting volunteers, making schedules, keeping the Nursery clean and orderly, stocked with diapers, wipes, keeping parents aware of the guidelines of the Nursery.

Communion
On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate Communion as the Lord commanded. To prepare for Communion, you are responsible to fill the Communion cups with grape juice (provided), break the Matza crackers (provided) into bite size pieces and place them in the servers, carry them to the front of the sanctuary & place them on a table. Arrive by 9:30am in order to be done before people start arriving.  After morning service, you are responsible to clean up whatever is left and put everything away. Everything is stored in the kitchen.

Fellowship Team
We all enjoy having a cup of coffee before & after church. The Fellowship Team is responsible for this ministry. You would make coffee before church starts, set up the Snack Table with cups, napkins & plates, snacks and juice after the morning service. Cups, napkins, coffee, napkins, cutlery are provided. You may also be asked to help with food preparation serving and clean up during special events such as Christmas, Easter, seminars. You will be placed on a rotating schedule. 

The Clean Team
This is an important ministry because we deeply desire to be good stewards of what God has entrusted to us - this building and the property around it. Weekly inside cleaning involves dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping the tile floors, emptying the garbages, cleaning the bathrooms. This can take up to an hour and a half. This is a great couple's ministry. Outside landscaping & upkeep during the summer & winter months is also an ongoing need. 

Praise Team
If you have experience with vocals or playing an instrument, see Bob Hendrix for more information.The Praise Team rehearses one week night and again before Sunday service from 8am to 8:45am.There is also an opportunity to help with song & Scripture verse overheads, typing them out and using the computer in the Sound Booth to project them on the wall during the morning service. This involves coming to church as early as 8am or possibly on a Wednesday night when the Praise Team rehearses to prepare/type out the praise song words from the song list. See Bob Hendrix. 

Special Music or Talents
Do you have a desire to sing a song that has touched your heart? Perhaps read a Scripture that you found powerful & moving? Read a poem? Maybe a short skit or drama? If you'd like to share this with the congregation, see Bob Hendrix first and share your ideas. He’ll schedule you into a morning service. 

Care Ministry
Do you see a need in our congregation for encouragement with a card or something practical like a meal? Does someone need help moving or with transportation? Join this ministry created to minister to the practical needs of this body and even those outside our congregation.
