Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of River of Life is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. There are opportunities to serve in various ways each Sunday morning in addition to a variety of local and global mission projects throughout the year.
River of Life is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. It is a place for community. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at River of Life.
Our Greeting Team welcomes people as they enter our Sunday morning services. They are the first face people see when walking in, and will be there to answer questions and help out in any way possible. So if you have a warm smile and a heart to make our gatherings as inviting as possible, this is the team for you!
Side note: greeting is one of the fastest ways to get to know more people and create connections with others you didn't have before., so if you are looking to meet more people, then the Greeting Team's for you!
Our Worship Bands lead our congregation through songs of praise and worship during our Sunday morning gatherings. They lead the rest of the congregation by playing instruments, singing, reading scriptures, and sharing what God has placed on their hearts. So, if you love music, have a heart after the Lord and are ready to lead others in worshipping Jesus, then being apart of a worship band might be a place for you!
Our Audio/Visual Team includes the people behind the mixing board, computer and camera doing all the behind the scenes work to make sure our services run smoothly on the technical end of things and get the livestream out to the rest of the world! It takes lots of patience and a knack for "techy" things, or at least a willingness and ability to learn new things to be apart of this team. So, if you have a heart to serve and would like to help make the technical side of our services run smoothly, this might be the team for you!
Coffee Bar Team
Our Coffee Bar Team runs the coffee bar! They take orders, make all sorts of drinks and then serve them with a smile. This is a place where you would thrive if you have any experience as a barista, but you could also learn it all from scratch. If you love to serve people and have an inner barista ready to come out, this is the team for you!
The Prayer Team is made up of a group of people who have a heart to cover others in prayer. They have 2-3 people each Sunday who are at both the front and back of the sanctuary ready to pray for and with anyone who wants or needs it. If you believe in the power of prayer and would like an opportunity to pray for more and more people, than this is the team for you!
LIFE Kids Team
Our LIFE Kids Team runs our children's ministry on Sunday mornings. They lead groups of kids from ages 3 to grade 5 in stories, songs, teachings and games. If you have a heart for children and want to pour into the lives of the next generation, being apart of the LIFE Kids team might just be for you!
Note: you will have to get a criminal record check done in order to serve on this team
LIFE Group Leader
LIFE Group Leaders lead LIFE Groups! LIFE Groups are small groups of people that meet on a weekly basis outside of our Sunday gatherings. Our LIFE Group leaders lead their own small group by hosting, organizing, and providing material/teaching, OR by delegating/empowering others within their group that are gifted in those different areas to fulfill those tasks. If you love to lead or would even just like to test the waters to see if you would do well at leading a group, then this could be a great step to take for you!
Worship Host Team
Worship Hosts host our Sunday morning gatherings. They will open the service off by running through some church announcements and will sometimes direct the church in any special events that happen. If you have a knack for speaking in front of people and would like to help serve on Sunday mornings, this could be the team for you!
