SERVE AT EMMANUEL

Just a few of the areas you can serve. Don't see your spot? Contact us and let us help you!

Volunteering on a team is one of the quickest and easiest ways to begin getting to know people at Emmanuel. Volunteers lead small groups from toddlers to teenagers, greet guests at the door, work in production in the sanctuary and much, much more! There's literally a spot for everyone, no matter what your skill or passion. And not only is it rewarding to see your service help other people, but it's also just fun!

Check out our serving opportunities page for more information. If you are not sure of where you could serve, then let us know. We would love to have a conversation with you in order to get to know your gifts and talents!
