Volunteer / Serve
We believe that serving God and others through the church is the best way to put hands and feet to faith. We believe that the fruits of our faith are shown through our love and service to others.
It takes hundreds of volunteers to make Beach happen! Whether you work with children or greet people on campus, we have an opportunity for you.
On this page you will find many opportunities for serving both within the church and throughout our community and beyond. When you choose what you’re interested in, contact the person listed or call the church office for more information. We will help you in every way possible to find your place in serving. So give one of these opportunities a try! We just know you’ll experience great joy!

BEACHKIDS (Children’s) MINISTRY
How would you like to help create the best hour of a kid’s week! BeachKids is for children ages 2 through 5th grade. It is our primary Sunday Worship experience for children of this age. To make BeachKids happen each Sunday, we need volunteers who are willing to give of their time and talents to lead children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. This can be done by either being in an age graded class to running tech in the worship space, or working with other adults to support one another. There are a wide range of areas of service within BeachKids. We just need people who are willing to use their talents for God. If you are interested in, or want more information about serving in BeachKids, please contact LeeAnn Farr or 249-2343 ext. 236
