Join Us in Service to Advance the Kingdom

Serve with Us

With the various ministries at Mt. Bethel, we have a constant need for volunteers to assist in making each ministry function to its fullest. Please take a few minutes to review our list of needs. We're sure there's a place for you to serve God through serving others at Mt. Bethel!

We Need You Now!

Our greatest needs currently are for Sunday morning volunteers in our Children’s Ministry and on our Welcome Team. A small amount of your time brings great Kingdom rewards!

GreetersGreeters serve at one of the entry points to the church on Sunday mornings. They welcome every person who walks into our church with the love of Jesus so that everyone knows they are welcome here. If someone is visiting/new, they are responsible for walking them to their destination, and bringing them to the information desk so we can gather their information and follow-up.Greeters typically serve at either the 9:30 or the 11 am service. They are expected to be here at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the service, and stay until traffic at their entrance has stopped. They are asked to sign up when they are able to serve; no specific time requirement.Training for each group is currently occurring on an individual basis. I communicate with new volunteers, and have them shadow an experienced volunteer until they feel comfortable. In addition, they all receive weekly emails  letting them know of special events, things they need to know, or any other pertinent information.
