Do what you love while serving at church

The church is always at its best when the people within are serving and sharing according to their gifts, passions, and talents.

Our Lay Leadership team is in the process of identifying people in our church who may be ready to share in service, doing some of the things that they love to do. Please read on, and prayerfully consider whether God may be leading you to engage in leadership.

All commitments are for one year at a time.

If you’d like to express interest in one of these areas, fill out the form at the bottom of this post, or use the insert in your Sunday worship folder, or contact a pastor or the church office (info@hilliardumc.org, 614.876.2403).

Do you love to help others feel welcome?

If talking with others and helping them feel a sense of belonging and connection makes you smile, these
opportunities might be a great fit for you:

  • Sunday Hospitality Team Member – Arrive early for the service in which you attend to greet guests.
  • Office Receptionist – Serve a 3 hour shift in the church office, once a week, Monday-Friday.
  • Special Event Hospitality – Set up and serve funeral meals, host church gatherings and outside groups.

Do you love working behind the scenes to ensure that all systems are running with safety and integrity?

If you have an eye for details, assessing risks, and are a good steward of resources, you might serve here:

  • Trustees – This team has oversight of all church-owned property & facilities and meets monthly.
  • Finance Team – This team meets most months to provide oversight and management
    of church financial affairs and budget.
  • Memorials/Permanent Endowment – This team meets 3-4 times annually to monitor investments, help distribute
    endowment proceeds, and support the promotion of planned giving.

Do you love to build people up and ensure that they have what they need to be successful?

If you often think of the big picture of the church, have an interest in those who serve, and have ideas of how to
empower and mobilize the gifts of others, consider serving in one of these capacities:

  • Staff Parish Relations Committee – This team supports our staff and pastors & ensures we have
    the right personnel to serve the needs of the church.
  • Lay Leadership Team – This team helps match people to serving roles according to their gifts.

Do you love integrating technology to make things work better?

might be right for you:

  • Sound Team – Help run the sound board at one of our worship services. Training provided!
  • Multimedia Team – Help run the slides at one of our worship services. Training provided!
  • Computer Support Team – Are you available to occasionally provide staff with onsite or phone computer support?

Do you love watching kids grow and develop and discover God’s love for themselves?
