Without volunteers, our weekends wouldn’t happen. From nursery workers to musicians to greeters, you make ministry possible.

We don't just need teammates on the weekend. There is a lot of terrific ministry that happens throughout the week as well.

Look through these lists and find the spot that is right for you.


Guest Services

To serve in any Guest Services area, contact Terri.

The Creek Café
The Creek Café is right for you if you like casual conversations, praying one-on-one with others, all while making people comfortable...liking coffee is a plus.

Greeting Ministry
Greeting Ministry is right for you if you are outgoing, you like to make people feel welcome, you are gifted in hospitality. You'll hold doors, help people with umbrellas, plus other things that make sure people feel welcomed.

Information Centers
The Information Centers are right for you if you are friendly and want to help people know where they're going and how to take a next step. These Centers are our first line of communication on the weekends and the most consistent place we get to welcome guests.

Parking Ministry
Parking Ministry is right for you if you are welcoming, but also have a good sense of logic and can see how to keep things moving. You'll keep things safe and in order during busy times in our lot...and you get a sweet jacket!

Ushering is right for you if you're proactive, good at finding solutions, and hate the fact that someone might leave worship because of a lack of space. You'll find seats for people once the service has begun, fearlessly walking the aisles looking for open seats or creating room by asking those who are seated to move over.



If you are musician (who plays more than air guitar) and you want to use your gifts to lead others in worship, please contact Tom Harrigan, Worship Minister. We’re looking for electric guitar players, acoustic guitar players, drummers, bass guitar players, keyboard players, and the occasional banjo or harmonica player.


If you love Jesus, involuntarily sing in the shower, and would like to use your vocal talents in our worship choir or our on-mic worship leader team, please contact Laura Dingman, Creative Arts Director. We are looking for vocalists who are authentic, passionate worshipers and who love Jesus more than singing.

Stage Build Team

If you enjoy making creative designs come to life, our stage build team needs you. Please contact Terri Kilgore, for more information. 


If you have a knack for drama (the kind where you use your acting skills), and would love to use your gifts and talents to help tell the story of God, please contact Laura Dingman, Creative Arts Director. We are looking for actors, directors, and writers who are characters themselves and also love to bring characters to life.



If you get geeked out by gadgets and would like to use your gifts to shape the worship experience on our Tech Team, please contact Terri Kilgore at . We are looking for sound engineers, camera operators, graphic designers, lighting technicians, and more.


To sign up for any of these roles, contact Jennifer.


Kidustrial Park Greeter
Kidustrial Park needs to be the friendliest front door in town. You'll greet families as they enter and help them check in, find the right rooms, answer visitor questions, and keep the traffic moving.


Large Group Worship Teams 

Vocalist or Dancer
For Preschool or Elementary Large Groups
Vocalists and dancers make sure that kids get a chance to express their passion, wonder, and love for God in a relevant and inspiring way. They are loud in their praise and wild about their love for God. And they like when they can get kids involved in the expression of the awesome God we serve. They try to establish an experience that doesn't stop at the edge of the stage. 

Tech Team
For Preschool or Elementary Large Groups
The tech team captures attention with the use of media and AV elements to create a fun and engaging environment. As part of the team, you'll tell the story as effectively as possible with the use of sounds, lights, and video without distracting the audience.

Elementary Large Group Host
The Host serves as the emcee. He or she usually welcomes the children, transitions to the Bible story and Worship, then dismisses kids to small groups.

Elementary Large Group Storyteller
The Storyteller is a master teacher who communicates the Bible story in a creative, attention-gripping way.

relationships, discussion, and other small group activities.

Weekday Curriculum Prep

For each of the above roles, we need subs to fill in when others are sick or traveling



Greeters make families feel secure when dropping off their children. They help with check-in, direct people to the right room, introduce guests, and help parents get their children situated.

One of the most popular jobs at The Creek! This is what it sounds like; you get to hold, play with, and care for babies while parents attend worship services.
