Opportunities to Serve

Below are some ways to serve in our church and in our community.   Sign up online.

SUNDAY MORNING NURSERY AND PRESCHOOL needs volunteers. Our members are asked to serve just 1 service every 4-5 months, but help is always needed!  All that is necessary is a loving heart and a willingness to share God's love.  Contact Jan Doll at jdoll@christcov.org

ELEMENTARY CLASSES on Sunday mornings need shepherds and teachers. Shepherds are folks who help in a particular group and go with them each week into various rotation classes:  art, computer, video, Bible study, and drama.  No teaching is necessary, it's just a great way to build friendships with these kids.  Teachers have all lessons provided to them, so all that is needed is a love for children and the Bible. Contact Karen Trent at ktrent@christcov.org if you can serve in this ministry!

events web18 visitation min ed2VISITATION MINISTRY is having an organizational meeting Sunday, August 26th, right after the second service in adult classrooms A & B.  We will discuss 3 different ministry opportunities. So if you have a heart for others who need visitation, please come as we are looking for individuals who are gifted in the area of reaching out to others who are in need of fellowship.  

GOOD NEWS CLUB:  4 out of 5 children do not attend church on Sundays. With the After School Good News Club Ministry, we can reach these unchurched children and share the Good News of Jesus with them every week, right in the public school building!  If you would like to learn more about getting involved in an After School Good News Clubs in this area, please contact ktrent@christcov.org.

COMPASSION/BACKPACK MINISTRY will begin again on September 20th and will pack food for needy kids on the 3rd Thursday of each month.  12:30pm at Cornerstone Church. 

IF YOU ARE RETIRED and have handyman skills, we can use your skills around the church for minor repairs and maintenance. Or, if you are able to create and manage a maintenance schedule for the church vans, we would love your help. Neither of these is a significant investment of time, but would be of great service to the Lord and your church.  Please sign up here.
