Weekend Opportunities

We truly mean it when we say that we couldn’t do this without you…and we wouldn’t want to! We all have a role to play here at New Life and serving on a ministry team is a great way to not only use your gifts and talents, but also to meet more people and get connected. Whether you like being on stage, a friendly face, or a serving ninja behind the scenes, you are an important part of the New Life team! Below you’ll find some ministry opportunities that you can jump into!




1st Impressions

We want people to feel welcome at New Life and our First Impressions team of Ushers and Greeters are the first faces our visitors and attenders see each week. If you would like to join our team, you can choose to serve weekly, twice monthly or monthly at the service of your choice. There will be periodic meetings to train and update you as well.

It is so rewarding to watch kids come alive learning about Jesus but even more rewarding is that we get to play a role in that! Investing in the lives of kids is one of the most fulfilling, meaningful, and fun ways you can use your time and talents to serve God! If you are interested in finding out more about joining our team, we would love to talk to you.

hospitality Team

Have you ever thought of being a barista? Be part of the hospitality team that serves food and coffee on the patio between services. Maybe you love to bake. We have teams that bake cookies for special events and one that makes weekend goodies to serve on the patio. Or if you like to stay behind the scenes, we even have a team that helps wash tablecloths after big events. There is something for everyone. Come join our Team.

King’s Crew

King’s Crew is a group of volunteers who meet at the church every Wednesday to help with practical projects. Painting railings, tearing out walls, setting tile, constructing cabinets, placing drywall are just samples of the types of work done by this team.

Every session begins with a time of prayer and ends with a lunch, so this is a great way to meet some other people while making a great contribution to New Life. Just show up Wednesday morning!

Do you have a good eye for photography? We would love some photographers to help document our services + events. We also have opportunities for portraits for special events/weekends like Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas Eve, etc. At this point, you would need to provide your own equipment (DSLR cameras are preferred).

APPLY |Worship Arts Form



Our desire is to see every individual have a transformational encounter with Jesus. In worship, our focus is turned towards Him, creating an atmosphere where encounter is inevitable. We believe that transformational encounters are fostered through a presence-minded culture, so our team is guided by three principles: intimacy with God, honor between each other, and individual pursuit of excellence (both of heart and skill).

The more we know, love and serve each other within community, the greater our impact will be. Because we place such a high value on community, it is both the beginning and the end of the journey to serve on the New Life Worship Team as we seek to serve the body and equip each other for life and ministry.
