Opportunities to Serve
Christ Church has various lay ministries which provide opportunities for parishioners to use their time and talents to serve in the life of the church:
On Sunday mornings you may see a Crucifer and two torch bearers who help facilitate worship for congregants by carrying the cross and candles down the aisle and assisting the priest at the communion table. If you are ten years old or older and are interested in serving on this team, please contact Thom Hunter.
This team takes care that the altar is prepared for the services on Sundays and throughout the week. Altar Guild welcomes volunteers…men or women. Training at your convenience and scheduling that fits your personal life. Above all, a blessing not only to you but the clergy, the church and God. Please contact Melanie Gerber with any questions.
When indoor services resume, bouquets are crafted each week by volunteers for display on the altar. If you would like to be involved in this ministry, please contact Katherine Smith.
Experience with a sound board is preferred but not necessary, as training will be provided. If you are interested in serving on this team, please contact Michael Nichols.
Brandi Guel, our children’s catechist, is looking for volunteers to help with children’s catechesis. If you have any interest in being a part of this great ministry, you can send Brandi Guel an email, and even find a time to sit in one Sunday and see what it’s like.
This team helps coordinate meal trains, plan church potlucks, and welcomes parishioners on Sundays. If you are interested in serving on this team, please contact Mary Brinkerhoff.
Some hospitality volunteer opportunities include:
Bread Breakers – organize participants into groups 2x per year

On Sundays during services and catechesis, volunteers play with the littlest members of our parish. If you are interested in volunteering in the nursery, please contact Hannah Norman-Krause. A background check and training will be required.
