In the Bible the Church is described as one body with many parts(1 Corinthians 12:12). Each of us in the Celebration family is a part of that body and we all have a part in making that body work. We are called to use our gifts and talents to serve each other and the Church. Below you will find some of the ways that you can be a part of the Body of Christ at Celebration by serving!

  • Greeter- Our Greeters create a warm and welcoming environment for new guest and our church family each week as they open doors and greet people as they arrive at various locations on our campus. They help connect new guests to our community representatives and help with wayfinding as well. Sometimes a warm smile and hello can make someone feel like they made a good choice to join us at church.
  • Usher- Ushers help people find a great place to sit in our worship center each service and help insure our facility is ready. They are available during the services in case someone needs assistance and can answer questions about the service. They also assist in taking up the offering during the service. A friendly smile and willingness to help others is all that is needed to fulfill this role.
  • Brew Crew- Nothing says welcome quite like a hot cup of coffee or tea and a smile. Our Brew Crew provides that every Sunday morning in the Broom Tree Cafe. Members of the Brew Crew serve one Sunday a month brewing coffee and greeting guests and church members as they come and get ready for their Sunday in worship and Groups.
