Volunteer Opportunities

Become part of the team

We must all work together to meet needs in our spiritual family and to make a difference in our city. By becoming a volunteer, you will use and develop your spiritual gifts. Through serving, you will have opportunities to display love in Uptown and beyond.

Together, we can disrupt suffering and mend what is broken with the hope of Jesus.

Hospitality

We welcome people to Uptown Church and help them get connected into our spiritual family. We greet people as they enter, staff the Welcome Center, oversee post-service coffee, and we assist with collecting the offering and preparing communion.

"It gives me such joy to support and connect with people. God uses me as I shake hands and offer warm smiles."

Outreach and Events

We do our best to put our faith into action to serve and love our community well.

Worship

We are committed to leading people into authentic, heartfelt worship encounters with Jesus. We help the church connect with the Holy Spirit through corporate worship together.

Facilities

We have the privilege of preparing our space for each person that comes through our doors. This includes setting/cleaning chairs, tables, dividers, signs, and making sure the facilities are clean and presentable. We help make Uptown Church a welcoming home so people will feel comfortable, loved, and encounter Jesus.

"Helping out with facilities is more than just a task, it is ministry. I love praying over every chair I set up on Sundays."
