Every week, so many volunteers commit their time and energy to things of Emmaus. Below are a few opportunities for new members to jump on board with the many volunteer teams at Emmaus Church.
Hospitality — This team puts full emphasis on making guests and members feel loved and welcomed. The hospitality team is responsible for the ‘guest services’ set up and tear down on Sunday mornings including Communion, Connect Table, and Coffee Bar. You can serve as a Host, an Usher or a Hospitality Coordinator. All of these roles are volunteers who love to connect newcomers to Emmaus, are comfortable talking to new people, and are able to take initiative. If you want to display the gospel through the welcoming of guests and members, then email Kyler Keith, Director of Hospitality (email@example.com).
Production — The production team is looking for volunteers who will commit to serve once a month. Open positions include:
Audio – work as an extension of the music ministry to setup, operate and strike audio equipment used by music ministry.
Lyrics – setup and operate the lyrics computer; working with the music ministry and elders to run the prepared presentation for the Sunday liturgy.
Video – power on and record/livestream the sermon using the church’s camera
Light – power on, operate the dimmer switches and power off the lights used during service.
No previous experience required. All positions are needed for setup at 7:30, to stay during rehearsal and service then strike and put away the equipment by noon. All of these positions are essential in creating a welcoming environment for that fosters undistracted worship with the music ministry and teaching pastor to glorify God, declaring and displaying the Gospel.
If you’re interested in joining the production team, email Shawn at firstname.lastname@example.org
or walk up to the stage after service.
Communications — The communications team is looking for Tweeters during the Sunday sermon, graphic designers and photographers! Our aim is to communicate the gospel that’s proclaimed at Emmaus each week on a digital scale. If you’re interested in joining the communications team, email Jamie at email@example.com.
Serving in Emmaus Kids gives you the opportunity to share the gospel with children and families. You will get to teach children about Jesus and his deep love for his children. You can hold babies, crawl around with toddlers, teach and sing with preschoolers, or teach kindergarten-second graders. If you are not sure about teaching children or holding babies, you can also run our check-in station for all families of Emmaus Kids. Contact Tabitha at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you’re interested.
Music Ministry —
This team is responsible for leading the congregation in worship through song during our corporate gatherings. In this area, we hold dear the care and concern of our people through vocal and instrumental expression. This isn’t a responsibility for the music leaders and pastors alone, this is an entire ministry mindset, for our worship through song on Sunday
is a microcosm of what we should be doing day in and out as redeemed people. We labor not to bring attention to ourselves, but to be pointers, bringing attention to our Triune God and his glory, which is manifested in the gospel. The music we play is intended to be a vehicle by which the corporate body of Emmaus might express worship; through the songs we sing, the Scriptures we read, the prayers we pray, we mean to magnify God, so that in seeing him, we might have the opportunity to respond to him appropriately in worship expressed through song. Our prayer is that every Sunday
, all who gather at Emmaus would have a renewed and deepened view of the gospel.
Those who serve in this area must:
- be a covenant member or intend to become one
- have a willing heart
- be able to perform all given material at a moderate level
- participate in the set-up and tear-down of all equipment and materials
- provide their own instruments (if one isn’t provided by the church)
- agree to the terms listed in our worship covenant
We encourage those who want to be apart of the music team to inquire about auditions. We currently are in a brief season of auditions (these will end after December 1st) and will have future auditions the following weeks after each membership class. Look for more info as these events begin to arrive.
