Serving with your faith community is another way to connect. We serve God and our world on Sunday morning worship, education, and fellowship, and during the week in many programs and services in the larger community.  Each member is encouraged to serve according to his or her own talents and interests. Just click on the links below to learn more about both outreach and “inreach” service opportunities.

Sunday Serving Opportunities (“inreach”):

Sunday Mornings – Choir/ Soloist, Usher/Greeter, Reader, Fellowship Host, Nursery

Kids’ Rock Sunday School

Adult Faith Formation

Church Community Events 

Additional Opportunities (“inreach”):

Pastoral Care –

  • All are Ministers – Part of being in community with one another is sharing in the fullness of life’s joys and sorrows together. Each of us are called to care for one another in all seasons of life. Perhaps share a meal with someone you haven’t yet gotten to know, or send a card when someone is grieving.
  • Pastoral Care Team – offering pastoral care with Pastor Thad: offering time for reflection on a specific situation, sending cards, making phone calls, paying a visit to someone in the hospital, or offering other forms of care.

Properties and Grounds –

  • Between our church building and The Community House, we have a fair amount of property we are tasked with being responsible stewards of. There are (almost) always opportunities for skilled technicians to help maintain or make repairs or improvements to our physical properties.

We’re Out There Opportunities (outreach):

Urban Immersion

The Community House – a growing arm of the church that we hope will become tightly knit within our Sherman Park neighborhood.

Community Dinners – four times a year we host a dinner with the Tri-Block Association, welcoming neighbors and public officials for a time of exchange about concerns and issues.

Second Sundays – we join together in service projects once a month during fellowship time. We pack lunches for guests at The Guest House and Cathedral Center and schedule other intergenerational events throughout the year.
