Volunteer FAQ

How do I volunteer?

Click the "Sign Up To Serve" box above and fill out that connection card or fill it out during service. Then a team leader will call you to explain on their team works and next steps. 

Volunteering with kids or teens?

Same process with the additional step of a background check. We have to make sure ANYONE who helps in these areas has an even higher level of accountability. Our children's safety is SUPER important.

How often will I serve?

That is up to you and your team leader. We have an AMAZING volunteer culture so most teams only need people to serve around once a month. If you would like to serve more just let your team leader know or serve on multiple teams!

How do I know when I will serve?

We use a program called "Planning Center Services." You will be added to schedules through that and you will get an email letting you know you have been scheduled and you can accept or decline that. If you download that free app you can also block out times you do not want to serve to make it even easier for your leaders.
