We believe in developing mature followers of Jesus. We believe that every person who attends our church as gifts, talents, and abilities that God has given them. One of our goals is to see people flourish through service within the church. Even Jesus taught his disciples that true maturity comes through serving others (Matthew 20:25-28)
If you’d like to get involved in one of the areas listed below, please fill out the contact form on this this page or a communication card found on the tables at the church.
We believe our building is an extension of our church. The building isn’t the church, the people are the church. But the building is the place where we gather together. In biblical times, there was a sense of awe when it came to their church buildings. Great care was taken to make sure that their facilities represented their faith well. We believe a clean, functioning, up to date facility sends a message to both our members and our guests. If you want to help with maintenance, cleaning, or even security around the building, this is a great place to get involved.
One of the first things that greets people who come to our church is the beautiful cafe area. Those who serve in this area are often the first people our guests meet. In other words, serving in this area can help define the experience that people will have at the church. If you want to make a positive impact on people, this is a great area in which to serve.
Our children’s ministry is incredibly important to us. We follow the guidelines of Plan To Protect so that any child attending our church has a safe, fun, and encouraging experience. We’re not interested in simply babysitting children. We want to impact each life. If you’d like to get involved through teaching, assisting the teacher, helping with check-in, etc., then this is a great area to do that.
Once a week we host a drop-in centre at the church. This is a low key event where we simply hang out together. We also open up a computer centre where people can find resources and support. If you like connecting through conversation with people, this is a great way to do it.
Our free store has been hugely successful in helping us connect to the community. Every month, we provide free clothing, furniture, electronics, and children’s toys to the people of Vanier. Most months, people are lined up an hour before we open the doors! We are always looking for new people to help serve when the store is open. As well, we need people to hep sort items prior to each month’s event.
We love connecting outside of our main church service. And when we do, we love having food and fun! If you love preparing meals, setting up for social events, and making people feel like they are “at home”, then get involved in hospitality!
We believe that one of the greatest ways to make an impact is through media. If you feel the same, then there are all kinds of ways you can get involved in our media department. The great news is that we are happy to train you in many of these areas. Some of the ways you can get involved include: running the sound board, operating the video camera, lighting, editing video, graphic design, set design, website, photography, etc.
Every year we host special events as a way to serve our community. Some of these events are huge in scope. Others are on a smaller scale. If you’d like to be involved in the planning of the different events, then this area is for you.
We are blown away by the level of talent and ability found within our worship team. We are even more amazed with how passionate they are in their desire to worship God with their talent and ability. Our team is always looking for new members. If you play an instrument or love to sing, and you’re willing to practice and develop in your ability, then consider joining our worship team.
