Getting Involved

One of the best ways to get involved is to get to know others on The Journey.  If you are interested in learning more, meeting others, and finding out some of the next steps, we invite you to attend one of our Parties with the Pastor.  Please follow this link to find out more.

 

The Journey also provides many opportunities to serve others and to make use of the wonderful gifts God has bestowed on each individual. Serving is one of the best ways to connect with others and deepen your relationship with God.  Both our church and involvement opportunities are constantly growing and expanding. If there is some other way you would like to volunteer at The Journey please click here and tell us about it. Below are current service positions.

 

 

Sunday Worship Service Opportunities

Greeter

One of our values at The Journey is Radical Hospitality in which we create an authentic and non-threatening environment that welcomes all. You have the opportunity to convey that from the moment people arrive.

Greeters are responsible for:

  • Greeting our guests and members and directing them to the welcome/information table.
  • Covering all critical points in the parking lot, entrances, and at the welcome/information table.
  • Informing and guiding our first time guests.
  • Connecting 1st time guests with the hospitality hosts.

Connectors

By serving as a connector you have the opportunity to make both our guests and regular attendees feel welcome and at home every time we meet by connecting with them and helping them to make connections with others.

Connectors are responsible for:

  • Going one step further than the greeters by seeking to make connections with our first time guests, answer questions, and make them feel welcome.
  • Sitting with our first and second time guests during worship (if appropriate).
  • Ensuring that there are take-aways (flyers, etc.) spread throughout the gathering spaces.

Ushers

By serving as an usher, you have the opportunity to ensure that both our guests and regular attendees are equipped to worship God fully.

Ushers are responsible for:

  • Handing out bulletins to every family/individual at every worship service.
  • Handing out any other “special” things that will help in the order of worship.
  • Praying for and overseeing the offering time.

Hospitality Host

By serving on the Hospitality Team, your goal is to ensure that everyone feels “at home” by creating a welcoming and loving atmosphere.  This is primarily accomplished by preparing the drink and snack table prior to the worship service.

The Hospitality Team is responsible for:

  • Providing food – including some healthy choices – for each gathering of worship.
  • Providing Communion Bread each Sunday.  (King’s Hawaiian Bread is great!)
  • Re-stocking our drinks regularly – coffee, tea, lemonade, etc.

The Servant Team

 

Children’s Ministry

By serving on The Journey Adventure Crew you will share God with our youngest members – our children. Led by our Director and guided by our Children’s Ministry Task Force, you will have the opportunity to translate God’s loving message to our most precious resources.

Nursery volunteers are responsible for:

  • Assisting the Nursery Staff by loving on our children, newborns to four years of age. You will be hugging, feeding, playing, and changing diapers, etc.
  • Ensuring the safety of our children at all times.

Children’s Church volunteers are responsible for:

  • Implementing pre-written and prepared lessons while the sermon is being delivered in the main worship space.
  • Leaving with the children when invited during the worship experience and staying with them for the 20-30 minutes they are involved in Children’s Church.
  • Ensuring the safety of our children at all times.

Trail Guides are responsible for:

  • Making sure that first-time guests fill out registration forms and nursery stickers.
  • Taking first-time guests on short tours of The Journey Adventure Crew space.
  • Taking families from the registration table to the Nursery and introducing them to the Nursery Staff.
  • Ensuring the safety of our children at all times (when applicable).

Other Opportunities

The Bridge
Becoming part of The Bridge ministry means that you will work with others to develop and implement activities geared towards “tweens”. You will have an opportunity to put your creativity, energy, and resources to work for an enthusiastic bunch.

The Marketing Team
By serving on the Marketing Team you will have the opportunity to share The Journey with others. By sharing with people in the church about our ministries, you might help get them plugged into ministry. By sharing with people who are yet to be connected, you might help them to take a step, possibly their 1st, on their spiritual path.
