Whether you're good with numbers, words, technology, or people, God wants to use your gifts and skills to make a difference. We encourage everyone to go through PLACE to discover your spiritual gifts.
A growing Christian is always a serving Christian. What excites your passion to be a part of Town Creek? Explore your options below.
This list is not comprehensive. If you have other talents you would like to offer up, please get in touch with us via the form below. We will see that you find your place in building up the body of Christ.
If you love God and his children, then there are many different ways for you to help. We have a busy schedule with a variety of Children’s Ministry Teams. There are opportunities to serve in Kid’s Club Worship, Sunday Morning Lifegroups, Sunday and Wednesday night activities, American Heritage Girls, VBS and other special events.
If you are afraid that you don’t know enough, don’t worry; you don’t! No one knows everything, but as long as you are willing to learn, you will. And you may be surprised to find out how much you can learn from the children themselves.
We have opportunities for friendly, out-going individuals to serve by giving a warm smile and welcoming everyone to Town Creek. Greeters meet people at the door with a bulletin, guide them to the right class, connect them to a Pastor, help them to their seat, and help staff the welcome center.
We have been blessed with a wonderful campus. In order to be the best stewards of what God has given us, the Landscaping & Maintenance of the facility is maintained by volunteers. A lot of work occurs behind the scenes to prepare for a bustling Sunday morning.
Landscaping teams serve on a 4 week rotation where they perform the mowing, weed-eating and other landscaping tasks ahead of Sunday services.
There’s just as much to do inside the facility. You can imagine the many opportunities to serve in a large campus from changing lighting to fixing leaks. If you have specific maintenance skills, you would be a great help.
If you have a strong back, a know-how, and will to serve, we would love to have you. Talk to Derek Swarthout or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Service in the church nursery allows church goers to focus on worship rather than worrying about their children. In a very real sense your service makes it possible for the pastor to fulfill his ministry. The first (and sometimes lasting) feelings a child will have toward church is formed in the nursery department.
Nursery workers serve on either Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings, or Wednesday evenings on a rotational schedule. All workers must have been a member of Town Creek for 6 months and have a background check completed.
If you would like to be added to the nursery rotation, please see Sara Lucas or email her at email@example.com.
We have an opportunity to lead weekly chapel services for 5 area nursing homes every Sunday afternoon. We need volunteers with a heart for the elderly and their families to share a short (5-10 min) devotion and simply exercise the ministry of “presence.”
Please see Pastor Clint or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving.
During each Sunday morning Worship Service at Town Creek, teams of two pray for our service, our congregation, the global church, and our world.
“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
I Peter 3:12
Why do we pray?
Scripture tells us that God hears the prayers of the righteous and that when we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us. It also tells us that when we ask, seek and knock, the door is opened to us. Prayer is the “key” and is a powerful weapon.
Why do we pray during worship service?
It is during this time that a great cosmic battle goes on because the ruler of this world, Satan, does not want us to hear God’s powerful Word. God’s Word, heard through singing, praying, teaching and preaching changes lives. Unbelievers can hear the good news about how they can be saved from destruction. We ask that the Holy Spirit move among our people and bring conviction, forgiveness, renewal and encouragement.
Do I have to make up the prayers?
There is a typed guide every week that follows the ACTS format: Adoration (praising God for Who He is), Confession (silently admitting to God anything that could create a barrier between you and Him), Thanksgiving (thanking God for what He has done), and Supplication (asking for His help). We pray for our pastors, their families, their marriages, our staff, our teachers, our children and students, and each member’s family by name. Those with concerns on the prayer list are prayed for during this time.
Who can pray in the prayer room?
If you are righteous, God hears your prayers. You are righteous if you are a believer and have accepted the righteousness of Christ. It is Christ Who makes it possible for us to pray to the Father. Teams of two pray on Sunday during worship: 2 women, 2 men, or a husband/ wife team. Teams average twice a year but some request it more often. Many find it a blessing and are very uplifted after serving in the prayer room.
Contact Julie Hardaway if you are interested in serving.
The Worship Ministry at Town Creek exists to facilitate our motto of Seek, Serve and Share Jesus Christ. Our worship programs are purposely and prayerfully crafted together each week to accomplish this goal. This includes our song selection, our leading of worship, our special performances, our media slides and operation of the sound system.
Worship & Choir
Our Worship Teams take an active role in leading the congregation and performing solos. We are always looking for those in our Faith Family with these special God-given talents.
Instrumental Worship Teams
The Instrumental Worship Team serves as the foundational instrumental accompaniment for our Worship Choir and other special events. If you have a talent on any instrument, let us know. Don’t hold back because you may think that your instrument doesn’t fit our Worship Service or that someone else is already in that role. There is a place for you to use your specific talents for the Lord Jesus Christ in the Worship Service, special events, children’s ministry and more!
We are looking for those who are technically gifted and would like to learn to run our sound board, livestream camera, and media slides for the Worship Service.
This role may be behind-the-scenes but it is just as important as any other in preparing hearts for worship. Imagine if we did not have sound amplification of the choir or Pastor during service. Without this team, the Worship Service as we know it would not be possible.
