One of our goals here at Good Shepherd is to see hands employed by the gospel. When the apostle Paul speaks of the church, he refers to it as one body with many members (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12).
In order for the body of Christ to function properly, each member must do their part in using their unique gifts and callings to serve one another and enable the gospel to go forth. As a part of the body of Christ, we encourage you to consider serving in the church, not only on Sunday mornings but also throughout the week to love the city and see God’s kingdom come to bear.
One of the best places to witness the body of Christ truly acting as the body is on a Sunday morning. It takes a small army of volunteers serving on our Nursery Team, Children’s Church Team, Music Team, Greeters, and more to make Sunday Morning worship happen. If you are looking for ways to get more involved at GSPC, consider serving on a Sunday morning team where you will serve others, get to know the Good Shepherd family, and be a key part of facilitating the worship of our living God.
In our nursery, we have 4 classes broken up by age. Two volunteers are in each room, and we also have a volunteer that floats in the hallway to aid each classroom. Volunteers in the nursery serve on a 6-week rotation and are expected to arrive at 10:15am on a scheduled Sunday, to serve until the end of the service.
PRE-K and KINDERGARTENERS
Children’s Church volunteers (two scheduled per week) co-teach our Pre-K and Kindergarten-aged kids (4-6 years old) during the worship service. In this class, kids will be given a more in-depth look at the story of God’s redemption as our teachers lead them through lessons from The Gospel Project curriculum. This teaching involves reading a text from the Bible, doing activities and crafts together, praying, playing games, and practicing memory verses. Volunteers are scheduled on a 6-week rotation. You do not have to be a strong teacher to sign up!
This team includes individuals playing music, singing, managing the sound system, or any other aspect of producing the worship service on Sunday mornings. Certain members of this team meet to practice outside of regular worship times.
These individuals will read a Bible passage selected by the pastor to the congregation during the worship service.
Our Deacon teams help with a variety of tasks that help facilitate our worship service. They make coffee, greet and pass out bulletins, and pass the offertory baskets.
