“Each one should use whatever he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Each of us has been gifted by God that we might build up and strengthen the body of believers. Here at Creekside there are several service opportunities which give you a chance to assist the local body and serve the broader community. We are looking for people (members and non-members) who are willing to join with others in this work. This survey is intended to promote the goal of “every member serving,” spurring the entire church to effectively and generously use the talents which God has given to us. We hope this helps you find those works of service for which you have been particularly gifted.
Please indicate up to three selections representing areas in which might be interested in serving (or knowing more about). These selections will be shared with the church's leadership team (elders and deacons) to contact you, to answer your questions, and to share opportunities of service.
Selections (make up to 3):
Are you interested in creating a warm atmosphere that encourages visitors to our church family to feel welcome on Sunday mornings (hospitality through greeting, coffee break, etc.)?
Are you interested in being a part of a team that helps with church-wide meals (fellowship lunches, etc.) and/or special events (Fall/Spring Festival, Summer Pool Party, etc.)?
Are you interested in being a part of or learning how to contribute to our creative media team (i.e. graphic design, photography, web design, video production, etc.)?
Are you interested in helping with the audio/visual team (i.e. Sunday A/V team including sound and/or projection)?
Are you interested in helping to grow and disciple our young children by being a teacher or assistant (i.e. working with babies, toddlers, pre-school or elementary aged children)?
Are you a college student or young adult interested in serving teenage students in our church’s youth ministry through discipling, leading small groups, and teaching?
Are you interested in being a part of a team that helps with the NON-music portions of our worship service, such as setting up communion, serving as an usher, or collecting offering?
Are you interested in potentially being part of our music team (knowing that these opportunities can sometimes be limited)?

(Other) please share any skill/gift that could assist the body, not mentioned above:
We understand that various circumstances or situations (or ministries you are involved in more informally) may make it unrealistic to serve in one of these specific ways at this time. Please use this as a prompt for prayer and future opportunities as God provides.
