Find Where You belong!

We want to help you find the place where your talent, interests and the worlds’ needs intersect.  We all have gifts, so we need to find out what they are and use them to make the most impact on this work we can for Christ and his kingdom. It takes a host of volunteers to operate the ministries of River Valley. Whether you are a kid-lover or a high-tech operator, we have a place for you to serve. Listed here are some of those opportunities that you can jump into right away. Teaching and leadership positions are not listed because they require a 201 commitment and a proven track record. You can learn about those in Igniter 201 and 301.

Opportunities for You to Serve the Church:


Guest Services Team

Guest Services Team: This entire team strives to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere on Sunday mornings, with special attention to our guests. This mission is accomplished through several sub-teams Greeters, Information Center, Cafe, & Security.

Greeters: The Greeter Team extends hospitality at the doors and in the atrium with a warm smile and a real welcome. This team is trained to meet people where they are and are encouraged to be sensitive to those who appear to appreciate their space.

Worship Arts

It takes a whole team of people to put on a Sunday Experience. From lighting to sound, media, drama, vocalists and instrumentalist, photographers, and more, we rely on the creativity of our artistic River Valley Community Church body.

Worship Team: The worship team has the privilege of leading others in worship in our weekly services. We help others connect with God.  You should be comfortable in front of others and exude a passion for Jesus that goes beyond just singing or playing. We need instrumentalists & vocalists of all skill levels and ages.

Tech Team: The tech team happily serves in the background of every weekly experience that we have. Although they are rarely seen onstage, nothing would get done without these critical volunteers.  If you a focused, detail kind of person there are many ways to serve, i.e. creating and running media slides for songs and sermons, running a light or sound board & creating videos are a few options.

Design Team: the Design team creates logos, graphics, design stages and sets, they take photos of events, etc.  These positions demand a highly artistic person who’s willing to give of their creative heart to further God’s kingdom.

Production Team: The Production Team enjoys making and building things.  They have mad construction and destruction skills and enjoy using what they have on hand to make stages or sets or who knows what else!  These are the people who Get ‘Er Done! If this is you, there are many ways to serve.

Drama Team: The Drama Team enjoys bringing ideas to life with their creative skills.  Actors, writers, and hosts (who warmly welcome our church and engage others with information about church events) are needed!  

Imagineering Team: The Imagineering Team enjoys taking sermon notes and designing experiences that will engage our congregation with the message of God’s Word.  Out of the Box thinkers, writers, teachers & musicians are welcome this team.
