   VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We believe that we are one in the Body of Christ and that the gifts given to us are meant to be used in service to others. Messiah Church offers many ways in which you can find your niche, utilize your talents, enjoy fellowship with like minded people, and change the world.
There's something for everyone depending on your interests and time. Explore, expand, and enjoy.
“As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.”

 

ALTAR GUILD

For all those who like to work behind the scenes, this is the place for you. The Altar Guild literally 'sets the table' for our communion worship services. It requires a person with an eye for detail and an appreciation of the meaning and majesty of each liturgical color. Little time is demanded, you don't have to be 'up in front' of people, but this congregation is vastly grateful for all that they do. Try it. You might like it.
 


Worship revolves around the proclamation of the Word through Scripture, preaching, and music. A Lector reads the Word in the midst of the community. This important position needs one who is able to make what is written in God's Word come alive by reading each lesson clearly and with inflection. Yes. A microphone is available. And the lessons are available for practice prior to service. One great blessing of this volunteer position is that you become immersed in the Bible and therefore worship and faith become more meaningful! This may be your calling!!!
Lay Assisting Minister   
   
This volunteer opportunity is a priceless addition to each worship service. The assisting minister leads the people in profession of faith, prayer, and serving communion. It is truly an 'up front' and active role centered in the worship service and an experience unlike any other.

 
CHOIR
You gotta SING when the Spirit says sing!!! If you love to make joyful noise, if you want to get involved with  a group of people who share a love of music, come join our choir. Karen's Canaries provide special music for our worship to inspire, give pause for meditation, and  bring to life the Gospel of Christ. This ministry is year-round, with a brief hiatus during the summer months when some travel or return north. During this time our master music musician prepares solos, duets, and other harmonic pieces to enhance the
 worship experience. Bring your talent here! You'd fit right in.
