 No church can run without amazing team members and volunteers.

Here we would like to introduce some of our key players who enjoy being able to serve you in the community.

KINGDOM KIDS MINISTRY
 
Our children's ministry is run by a faithful and dedicated team who prays and seeks God's guidance
on how to lead the kids into personal understanding and relationship with the Holy Spirit.
For the children each lesson plan is thoroughly created for fun, learning, prayer and play.
This is not just Sunday school or babysitting, it is encouragement and growth for the individual child's heart. 
Our Youth Ministries is run by an amazing team of dedicated teachers and pastors who pray and seek
God's guidance on how to lead our future generation into lasting personal relationship with the Lord
that will guide and comfort them thru all their lives.
The youth are encouraged to lean into the Word of God, the importance of prayer, and find their posture of worship
 all while having fun and creating life long bonds with believers their age. 
 
 

Worship Team

Sanctuary is blessed  to have amazingly strong  Music Director and Leaders in Mike & Lisa Green. They  lead musical worship  in humilty and urgently seeking the heart of God like David did. As they  have tirelessly lead  this body alone for so many years,  they have helped to raise up  other worship leaders in just the same spirit and heart.  We are lucky to have such a diverse team and still have Jesus heart expressed in pure worship without disruption. 

Our team is a ministry that strives to pursue personal relationships with the Lord first, lead from on or off stage, and serve the body in musical guidance . We desire to bring each congregant into a personal seeking , relationship, and worship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit .

 
 

GREETING & USHER TEAM 

These are our teams who do more than just welcome you with open hearts and help direct you into comfort and information. These amazing people are often the ones who become key to our hearts. They are the first ones to listen, to introduce us to new kindred hearts in Jesus,

and help us connect to the community around us.

Theses amazing people build lasting relations that make simple greetings at the door feel like coming home to family.

BOARD MEMBERS

Why do we have a Board & what do they do?

As an appointed church board, each member is voted on for a specific term to serve as the financial accountability and prayerful delegators of finances and legal policies involved in church accountability. Church boards are responsible for ensuring that the ministry fulfills its core vision by helping to delegate and prayerfully fund the needs of the elder approved ministry action. This is done by developing strategy, monitoring performance, and ensuring church financial accountability. 

The board is an integral part of tying finances with the voice of Pastoral, Elder, and congregational lead decisions from our body's spiritual vision. Although biblically the Eldership is the teachers and guides, the board is necessary for the earthly business entity portions required here on earth. However we attempt to take the position as a servants posture before God, to oversee the business and financial needs as well as serve the congregation as needed. These duties can range from handling the simplicity of the bills being paid to the follow thru of the tasks the pastors and office shouldn't have to run, to helping serve our body.

Gary & Alyse Plumley

Gary & Alyse are amazing leaders in our small groups and Nursery classrooms. Both give tirelessly while having full time jobs serving  our local communities. The are parents to the most lovely children.

 

 

 

Sanctuary volunteer team is bigger  & more revolving than we can note individual names- We would hate to miss one name and so we will give this general praise report!


Each individual volunteer makes OUR TEAM  & is a HUGE reason why we are all drawn to be  in this church community. 

It is the continual  outpouring of care and hands that serve one another in love that allows our little church to care for one another and outwards into the greater community  of the valley and beyond. It is in this kind serving way  we get to witness the goodness of God's word in action.

Just as Jesus washed the disciples feet, we find hearts here that willingly serve and make themselves "lower" in posture to care for each other and the unknown. Whether it is greeters, ushers,  cooking dinners  for the community, set up & take down, sweeping, and washing dishes, stacking / cleaning chairs , bathrooms, or caring for those in need, or outward ministries--- this TEAM is a huge blessing we wish to honor  and thank.

This is our Sanctuary Team.

THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEER TEAMs!!!
