Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to make a major time commitment to participate in a ministry?

Some ministries are more time consuming than others. If you have a limited schedule, speak to the coordinator of the ministry that has captured your interest. In most cases, a scheduling solution can be discovered. Contact the office to get connected to the ministry coordinator.

Do I have to make a long-term commitment?

Several of our ministries are seasonal, so if you prefer a shorter term, or if you are in the are for a limited time, you may find that one fits well in your schedule.

Could I give something other than money or time?

The coordinators of each of our ministries understand that both of these can be in short supply! If you have an idea of a resource that you are willing to provide, please do speak to the coordinator of the ministry that you are interested in. Contact the office to get connected to the ministry coordinator.
