We want people to connect to our church, our community and the world in service that makes a difference. Here are some of the ways you can be part of a Serve Team.
Community Garden Team
Whether you have a green thumb or not, if you like gardening we would love to have you a part of our team. We offer garden boxes to the neighborhood and our congregation, with some boxes reserved as Farm to Table to grow produce to give out to our community, neighbors, and co-workers. Being part of the team includes helping plan summer workshops and assisting with the Farm to Table boxes – plant, de-weed, pick and hand out the produce on Sunday mornings as produce is available. If you are interested in being part of the Community Garden Team, please contact Jayne Tien.
Throughout the year we offer various events to our congregation and community as a way of encouraging people to invite others or to come on over and see what we are about! Events include Ladies Night Out, Corn Hole Tourneys, Easter Egg Hunts and Fall Fests. If you have the gift of organization and would like to help out with a particular upcoming event, contact Jayne Tien.
Family Ministry Team
We see family ministry as the church and the family partnering together to help lead children and students to follow Jesus. Volunteering can range from engaging with infants and toddlers in our Nursery, leading Children’s Programs on Sundays for K – 5th grade, or being part of the Middle & High School Youth Team- which meets weekly with our youth to build relationships with each other and Christ, serve our community, and enjoy fun times together! Interested? Contact Us.
First Impressions Team
We enjoy getting to know our guests before and after our Sunday worship time. If you are the energetic and welcoming kind of person and would like to be part of the team as a Door Greeter, Welcome Table Host, Refreshments Host, or an Usher, please contact Kim Crane.
Media and Worship Team
We want people to connect to God in a real, personal and even life-changing way during our worship time. Opportunities to serve include musicians, vocalists, and tech people to help us offer a meaningful time of worship during our Sunday services. To learn more about what is available, please contact Chris Sanchez.
Congregational Care Team
What does congregational care mean at Connections Church? An important calling of the church is to care for each other. In Acts 2:41 the early church “devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” This calling not only includes caring for each other spiritually, but also to caring, as we are able, for physical and emotional needs.
Connections has identified Congregational Care leaders who are available for visitation, prayer and consultation. You are encouraged to reach out to one of these people in cases where there are spiritual or physical emergencies and acute needs. Additionally, Pastor George and the elders/deacons are available to address spiritual and physical needs, especially if the Congregational Care leaders are unavailable. If you would like to speak to or meet with a Congregational Care leader, contact Barbara or Rich.
Locally, we partner with organizations to bring Christ’s love to our city in tangible and practical ways.
The Severe Weather Shelter Network helps the homeless by providing a place of refuge and a hot meal on freezing nights, October 1 – April 30. Our church volunteers provide support by providing and serving food and staying overnight (location: Faith Community Church, Littleton). If you are interested in being part of this ministry, please contact George Saylor.
Sand Creek Elementary School is located directly across from our church and we are excited about the partnership we are developing with them. As opportunities arise, we call on volunteers to assist – whether that is hosting childcare at our church while the parents attend an evening meeting at the school, serving them an appreciation lunch, or dropping of K-cups so they can enjoy coffee! If you want to help build this relationship, please contact Jayne Tien.
We recognize that prayer is essential to a life of Christian discipleship and in fulfilling the mission of making disciples so we spend time in prayer for our congregation, our surrounding community, and the church at large. We meet at the church on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. and during the week. If you would like to be part of a Prayer Team, please contact Vi Sjaardema.
Connection Church Service Teams are a great way to feel a part of the church. We would love to help you find a place to get involved!
