Opportunities to Serve

One of the character traits that has marked us as a church has been the incredible volunteer spirit of the many people who call New Life Foursquare home. Volunteering is a brilliant way to build relationships while practically helping to build the church and make our Sunday service an enjoyable experience for all who attend. Take a peak at the list of service opportunities below, and prayerfully consider how YOU can get involved!

Set Up/Tear Down Team
Our set up/tear down teams play a crucial role in our Sunday services. Volunteers serve 1-2 times a month, and arrive at church by 7am to start setting up the chairs and tables for Sunday service. After service, our volunteer teams stay to help put the tables and chairs back into storage until the following week.

Hospitality
The New Life Hospitality Team provides us with all the goodies we consume on Sunday mornings; coffee, tea, donuts, fruit and pastries. Our volunteers serve once a month, and arrive at church by 8am to begin preparing the refreshments and setting up the tables. Volunteers are also encouraged to use their expertise in organizing church potlucks and other events where food is to be provided. Many hands make for light work!

Nursery
Our New Life Nursery is completely fueled by volunteers. We could not exist without their leadership and expertise. Volunteers serve approx once every 6-8 weeks, and are responsible for providing a caring, nurturing and fun environment for our children, ages birth-preschool. Other responsibilities include establishing relationships with the children and their families, providing security during check-in and check-out, maintaining a sanitary and safe environment for our kiddos, and having a loving and gentle personality. We would love to talk with you about joining our team.
If you are interested and would like more information about volunteering in the nursery, contact cassie@nlfe.org

Middle School Class
Our New Life Middle School Group currently meets bi-weekly on Sunday mornings, during service. Middle school students come together for a time of small group interaction and relevant teaching. The goal of our small group leaders is to build trusted relationships, and help guide and shape the spiritual life of our students. This is accomplished through consistent leadership and accountability.
If you would like to learn more about how you can get involved, contact Mikaela Jonas at Mikaela@nlfe.org

Greeter
Our greeters help set the tone by offering the first welcome on Sunday morning, which contributes immensely to the atmosphere of the service. Our Greeters have the privilege of conveying hospitality and friendliness to our local church family and guests. Our goal is to exceed expectations of hospitality and to ensure a positive experience for everyone who enters our doors. Volunteers arrive at church by 9:30am, greet guests at one of the two entrances, hand out our weekly bulletin and SMILE.  If you enjoy meeting new people, we’d love for you to be the first to greet the local church family as they arrive on Sunday morning!
