Weekends are all about providing support on weekends, whether our guests have been attending for years, or it’s their first time.
Greeters are positioned at every entrance of the church. It is the greeter’s job to welcome and direct people.
The role of ushers is to work together with the other weekend serving teams, from greeters to the Information & Newcomers’ Desks, the team is there to assist in welcoming, directing and seating guests as needed. They are also occasionally tasked to collect offerings and be initial responders in emergency situations.
These individuals help answer questions our guests and congregation may have regarding connecting with our church ministries.
Seasonal serving opportunities take place periodically during the ministry year and are a great way to be involved without an ongoing time commitment.
This is our yearly Summer Camp during the first week of July for all Southview and community children in grades 1 to 6. This is our biggest event of the year and we require several adults and senior high students to lead small groups, crafts, snacks, games and activities as well as junior high students to help.
Occasionally we need people to help with certain building projects or other odds and ends jobs around the church. The time commitment is 1-3 hours each time.
If you have a green thumb, we would love your help in the spring and summer seasons to assist with cleaning flower beds, planting flowers, trimming trees, and pulling weeds.
If you don’t mind being out in the cold, we would love your help keeping our sidewalks safe and snow free in the winter. This role involves running snow blowers and and light shoveling.
Serving in a specific ministry is an ideal way to use your unique areas of gifting and expertise to support the ministries of Southview.
This volunteering opportunity involves serving once a week on Tuesdays from 7 – 9 pm as well as a monthly bigger event on a Friday. The role largely involves being a small group leader to a specific grade anywhere from grade 7 to 12. The first hour of the evening is typically games and the second hour is a lesson followed by small group time to discuss and have conversation. Youth nights are very energetic and full of excitement, if this is something you would like to hear more about someone on the team would love to chat.
