It’s important to us that we provide opportunities to share your talents and gifts with others, to be a part of what God is doing here at FreshStart Church. It takes up to 25 volunteers every Sunday to do what we do! Here are some of the different areas you can get involved.
FreshStart believes you don’t have to grow up to serve God. Many kids in the Bible accomplished feats for God before they ever grew up (Samuel, Josiah, David, etc…). I Corinthians 13:11 says, “When I was a child, I used to speak as a child, think as a child, reason as a child, when I became a man, I did away with childish things.” This verse tells us that adults and children speak differently, think differently, and reason differently. If an adult is to be effective at ministering to a child the adult must enter the child’s world, speak their language of fun, and relate Biblical truth on their level. That’s what we aim to do at FreshStart Church.
The FreshStart Church Production team works to create an engaging worship environment through the use of media, technology, and the arts.
Our ministry is a team effort. We are all blessed with different gifts and talents. So whether you have a long history in production and technology, or have little experience but want to learn, you can serve on the team.
Our band rehearses Thursday night at 7:00pm and does a run thru before the Sunday morning service. The Worship Band takes a progressive modern approach to music, focused on rhythm charts, improvisation, stage presence, and integrating technology with worship.
We are looking for skilled, flexible, adaptable, likable players, with servant hearts. While core band instruments are drums, bass, keys, and guitars, we do regularly utilize other instruments, including strings, winds, brass, percussion and a variety of other instruments.
We are relentless about achieving a particular “feel.” As such, we value the musical ability to listen and respond within a group. Technical proficiency has its place but only as it contributes to the overall feel.
If you are this kind of player, the Worship Band is for you.
Hospitality exists to love and serve everyone that arrives at our church. The mission for this ministry is to offer every person that walks thru the door a place at the table. A place in our church family where they can serve and be empowered, equipped and discipled.
