Opportunities to Serve
We have many areas of ministry at Sheffield Family Life Center, and none of them are possible without the help of those that call this house their home. We need passionate, dedicated people to see that our mission to serve the community and those around us is fulfilled by volunteering to serve.
The first step to becoming a servant volunteer is to complete our 8-week Membership 101 class. Please click on this link for more information on the Membership 101 class: http://sflc.net/membership-101
Below is a current list of areas that need your help to ensure that the work of the house is completed. Please click on the link provided or contact the ministry by using the information listed below.
Altar Workers – Our Altar Workers are called on nearly every service when the invitation is given for those who do not know the Lord to come to the altar for prayer. Altar workers pray with people to encourage them, always with the goal to lead them to the Lord. Altar workers are a caring, compassionate, and patient people whom God has called to provide a very crucial ministry to hurting individuals. Training is provided for volunteers in this ministry.
Greeters - The Greeter Ministry is a team of individuals who will be the first smile people see when they come to SFLC. Our Greeters also are here to help guide people to the locations they need such as the nursery, children’s service, classrooms, etc. Our goal is to reflect the love of Jesus to each and every person who comes through the church doors and make them feel welcomed. We are a team of servants inviting the tired and hopeful into God’s love, grace, and embrace and we always convey the message, “Welcome to Sheffield!”
Ushers - Our ushers provide an important service during each service. Not only do they help people find a seat, but they are often called upon to hand out information during and after service, and are the servants that facilitate our offering time. This is a dedicated and highly trustworthy group of individuals that God has called to provide a vital ministry at every service.
Visitor’s Center – Visitors are recognized during each service and are invited to visit our Visitor’s Center after our Sunday services. The goal of our Visitor’s Center workers is to welcome visitors with love and encouragement to let them know that they are somewhere where they belong and are welcomed. In addition, they are available to answer any questions that visitors may have and provide them information on our ministries. The volunteers in this ministry provide a vital ministry to serve our visitors in such a way as to leave them with the desire to return to Sheffield and make this their church home.
Watchmen on the Wall - Our Mission is to safeguard SFLC, our visitors, and the facilities during the course of, and in conjunction with, sanctioned worship services, events, and activities. Our Watchmen are always ready to assist church parishioners in any situation, including: emergency circumstances; and in areas of fire safety; loss; accident prevention; facility security monitoring; and parking supervision during church events and services. These dedicated volunteers are the eyes and ears of SFLC and are responsible for providing a safe and tranquil environment in which to worship.
