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."
    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Serve as a greeter
  • Help facilitate the post-service coffee time

Outreach and Events

We help create opportunities for the church to interact with our neighbors by planning, organizing, and running the various events at Uptown Church. We also go out in the neighborhood on prayer walks, pass out Stories of Hope, and put faith into action in our neighborhood.

"Helping out with Fall Festival and summer picnics is amazing!"
    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Help set up and clean up at an event
  • Host a connect night

Care

We facilitate compassion and benevolence within the church. We schedule visitations for shut-ins, check up on the sick or injured, provide food for those who need a meal, and pray over the needs in our spiritual family.

    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Prepare a meal for a family in need
  • Call/visit someone who is sick

Kids

We mentor and disciple the next generation to love and serve Jesus. Our volunteers encourage elementary age kids to deepen their faith, we teach them Bible stories, and we help them explore their relationship with God. We also hold babies, play with toddlers, sing songs, pray, and encourage kids to be open to God.

Small Groups

We gather regularly with other Uptown Church family members to form friendships and a deeper sense of community. We jointly explore and engage in the mission and vision of our church.

"Being a part of a small group significantly impacted my faith journey in more ways than one. It allowed me to make deeper connections with members of Uptown Church ultimately making me feel more connected to the community."
    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Shadow a small group leader

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.

“I’ve grown so much both as a musician and a person through being on the worship team! I feel more equipped with boldness and freedom, open to letting God do work in me.”
    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Set up and tear down the stage and sound equipment
  • Sit in on a Thursday night practice
 
 

Media

We provide media of all kinds to help Uptown Church share the gospel. We produce graphics/videos, web and social media, record/process sermons, and update the website. Each Sunday service, we also set up and run visual presentations for lyrics and sermons.

  • Help run the Sunday Service presentation

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."
    First Serve Opportunity:
  • Come early on Sundays to help set up
  • Help tear down after Sunday service
