Use Your Gifts
Serving is a natural part of belonging to a church family. It's an opportunity to use time, effort, and abilities to help others experience the hope of Jesus. And in the process, you'll develop a greater connectedness to the other people in the church.
WHY WE SERVE
We serve because Jesus served us. He gave his whole life in obedience to God so that we might have life and hope. And it's by His example of love and sacrifice that we know how to serve others. (Mark 10:45, John 13:12-15).
We also believe that God equips everyone in His church with unique abilities and calls us to exercise them for the good of other people. (Ephesians 4:11-12, Romans 12:3-8).

We believe that serving is better when we do it together. Teams are groups of people with a common passion and common goal. Below is a list of our current teams with a brief description of what they do:
SETUP / TEARDOWN: This team prepares physical spaces for the church to gather and changes them back again.
HOSPITALITY: This team helps everyone feel at home with One Hope Church.
KIDS: This team cares for and teaches kids about Jesus.
SAFETY: This team keeps people safe and stands at the ready to respond to emergency situations.
BAND: This team leads church gatherings in worship through song. Auditions required. Submit a video audition here.
PRODUCTION: This team operates audio and video systems to create an environment for worship.
NEXT STEPS: This team helps people move toward Jesus and the church.
ACCOUNTING: This team counts and handles financial donations.
How often DO YOU EXPECT ME TO SERVE?
For most positions, we ask that you'd be ready to serve at least twice per month. If there is an exception to this or a special circumstance, your Team Leader will let you know.
Can I serve on two teams at once?
We recommend volunteering for one team at a time. You'll be less stressed, more flexible, and less likely to burn out if you commit wholeheartedly to one team at a time.
In addition, this makes it easier to manage your schedule, to build relationships with the people you serve and serve with, and allows you to learn the ins and outs of the team.
