There are a variety of opportunities to serve in the life of the congregation to fit anyone’s gifts and interests. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to volunteer.
Building & Grounds
Maintaining the buildings and grounds takes a lot of work. Volunteers are needed to help with tasks such as snow removal, landscaping and small maintenance projects.
At Geist Christian Church we believe that each child is special in God’s eyes and has unique gifts of great value. Loving our children teaches those children to love our God. Volunteers are needed as nursery attendants, greeters and security, small group leaders, children’s worship leaders, among other things.
Take an active role in worship, preparing the sanctuary, serving communion, and receiving the offering gifts of the community of faith. Deacons teams serve once a month at a designated service.
A committed group that educates the congregation about ways to care for God’s creation oversees recycling efforts at both campuses, supports the natural environment by maintaining native plants, prairie, and butterfly garden at PR campus, hosts tours of grounds, participates in the Green Congregations (communities of faith united by concerns for creation), works with Weekday Ministries to instill a love and respect of nature, among other seasonal endeavors.
Offering a warm greeting, extending a hand of fellowship, and being a welcoming presence provides hospitality to our guests and helps prospective members find their way.
Worship is more inviting, more welcoming, when all can see, hear, and experience the Word, the table, and the Spirit at their best. Media Ministry makes that possible. At the Mud Creek Campus the media team oversees sound and lighting as well as audio and video recording. At the Promise Road Campus the media team operates the video cameras, sound board and lights as well as directing videos and sermon illustrations throughout the service.
Support Geist Christian Church ministries and events by serving in the church office on either a regular or as-needed basis. Office Angel tasks include data entry, preparing mailings and special event preparation.
Gifts of art, color, light and texture make the worship space come alive, engaging all the sense in worshiping the living God. Volunteer possibilities include sewing & quilting, maintaining worship materials (linens, candles, etc…), special worship preparation and stage settings.
The Geist Christian Church youth program is a dynamic and inspiring ministry. There are volunteer opportunities for both youth and adults. Youth volunteers can get involved by attending the ALTARed youth services, playing in the worship band, running sound and lights, as well as other youth-centered outreach projects. Adults support opportunities include hospitality, small group leaders, and mission and outreach assistance.
