There are numerous opportunities to serve on Sunday mornings. Whether it be setting up for Communion, teaching a kids’ lesson, or running the sound board, it takes about 30 volunteers each week to make Liberti Church Collingswood an inviting community for our friends and neighbors. Check out the list of volunteer teams below. If you have any questions or would like more information about serving in our church, please contact Chelsea Vandlen (email@example.com).
Set up Team: We are lucky to have such a great space for worship, but many hands are needed each week to prepare the Community Center for our worship service. If you have flexibility to arrive early and don’t mind a little manual labor, consider joining this team. Each Sunday you serve, you will arrive at 8am, bring supplies upstairs, set up the tables in the worship space, double check chairs, put up signs, and prepare our Liberti Kids spaces. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 6 weeks.
Tear down Team: If you can’t arrive early on Sundays but don’t mind staying after the service to help us return the Community Center to the way we found it, we would love some extra help. Immediately after the service, you will help clean up the worship space, tear down tables, take down signs, tidy up the Liberti Kids spaces, and bring all supplies downstairs. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 6 weeks.
Greeting Team: First impressions are important, and as a greeter you have the unique and important opportunity to be the first point of contact for visitors, regular attendees, and members alike. From 9:45am – 10:15am, you’ll hand out worship folders and parking passes at the front door. But more importantly, you’ll be a welcoming face, a helpful presence, and may have a chance to impart a little of the vision of the church along the way. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 8 weeks.
Ushering Team: Once folks make it in the door and up the stairs, ushers serve as folks’ second point of contact. You’ll be staged just inside the entrance to the worship space from 10am until the Passing of the Peace. Your primary duties include making sure everyone has a worship folder, directing visitors to information and refreshments, and helping folks find seats before the service. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 4-6 weeks.
Offering Team: Towards the end of the service each week, regular worshippers have the opportunity to give as a tangible act of worship and expression of deep gratitude to God for his generosity to us in Christ. Although it may seem like a simple ask, we need volunteers to help pass the plates and count the money to be deposited each week. You will always have a member of the Finance Team to help you with this task. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 4-6 weeks.
Prayer Team: During communion each week, two members from this team (typically one male and one female) stand at the side of the worship space and pray with anyone who desires prayer. As a member of this team, you will arrive by 9:45am for a short prayer time before the service in the Conference Room. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 4-6 weeks.
Hospitality Team Leader: Most of our Hospitality volunteer teams (Set up, Tear down, Greeting, Ushering, Offering, and Prayer) are scheduled on a weekly basis, and the frequency at which each volunteer is scheduled depends on the total number of volunteers for that team. To help with the training, coordination, and recognition of our growing volunteer base, Hospitality Team Leaders will oversee the efforts of the following teams: Set up/Tear down, Greeting/Ushering/Offering, and Prayer. Team Leaders commit to serving for at least twelve months and will help to create/maintain training materials, train new volunteers, ensure volunteers are set each week, and coordinate ongoing communication.
Audio/Sound Team: If you have a musical background or you are savvy with sound equipment, this team could use your skills! As part of the Set Up Team, you’ll arrive at 8am, bring equipment upstairs, and get everything set up and ready to go. As part of the Sound Board Team, you’ll run the mixer board in the back of the room during the duration worship service. (Additionally, if you’d want to serve on these teams but don’t have prior experience with setting up and running sound, we’d be happy to train you!) Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 4 weeks.
Liberti Kids Team: Have kids, like kids, or want to serve other families in the church by giving parents a reprieve during the service? Hang out with our little ones! Liberti Kids I (six months to three years) meets from the Passing of the Peace through the end of the service, while Liberti Kids II (four years to first grade) and Liberti Kids III (second to fifth grade) only meet during the sermon portion of the service. For the infants and toddlers, you’ll need to get the room ready before parents begin dropping off their children, as well as help them get checked-in. For the bigger kids, you’ll check in with the lead teacher(s) for that week before the service to make sure everything is set, then support them with the lesson and activities. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 6-8 weeks.
Liturgy Team: At Liberti Collingswood, every worship service is designed to rehearse the various movements of God’s work toward us in Jesus Christ. As someone who helps to guide the congregation through the elements of each service, the role of the liturgist is a crucial one. If you serve in this capacity, you will receive ample coaching and a more detailed orientation guide. Estimated time commitment is one Sunday every 8 weeks.
