Serving Within Hilliard UMC

Hilliard UMC serves others and builds community…

Be the church: All are encouraged to serve within the walls of the church in some way or another, based on your areas of giftedness and ministry passion.

To serve in any of these areas, contact the church office (, 614.876.2403) unless otherwise noted.

Hospitality & Worship Ministry

Several ministries focus on welcoming guests and regular attendees to Sunday worship services.

  • The Hospitality Team offers a cheery “hello” as people enter the buildings, provides worship folders, assists with seating and special needs, collects offerings and tithes, and staffs the information/connection tables.
  • The Multimedia Team prepares slides and runs the slide show and occasional video clips during worship and special events.
  • The Sound Team runs the sound board for worship and special events.
  • The Communion Team helps prepare, serve, and clean up after Holy Communion (celebrated once a month at each building, usually the first Sunday of each month).
  • The Set Up / Tear Down Team at Warehouse 839 occasionally sets up the worship space for worship and special events.
