Get Involved!

Growing in Jesus means serving others – here are some ways you can get involved in our mission to help every person possible find real life in Jesus!  And when you serve you’ll be fulfilling the second part of our mission in your own life – looking more like Him everyday!

Look over the options below then fill out the form at the end of this list to get started!

Welcome Team:

We want to do our best to make every guest feel welcomed at Real Life by greeting and assisting them in a way that radiates Christ’s passion and love for them. A friendly face goes a long way in making our guests feel welcome and expected! And we can’t have too many smiling faces! We want our guest’s experience to be viewed as the best place with the best service they’ve been to all week! As part of our welcome team your role is vital because every Sunday is someone’s first Sunday and you may be the first smiling, friendly face they’ve seen all week!

Service commitment: 3 months

Welcome Team – Before the service, depending on your role, you may be asked to be at the CC by 9:15 to set up or by 9:30 to greet.

All Hospitality members are expected to attend the Morning Prayer time at 9:30

Set-Up Team:

As part of the Set-Up team you are establishing the foundation for everything else that happens on Sunday. We set up quickly and correctly so our ministry team leaders and volunteers can spend their time preparing a great experience for our guests to meet Jesus.

Service commitment: 1 year – (that’s only 12 times!)

Time: It takes 2 people about 30-45 minutes to have everything ready for our leaders/volunteers.

7:30am – Meet at the Civic Center loading dock
7:30-7:45 – Unload bus
7:45-8:00 – Distribute totes and items to individual rooms and set up as necessary
8:15 – Done

Volunteers need to be able to lift at least 30lbs
*5th Sunday/Alternates would serve on 5th Sundays (4x) and be on call to cover if others are unable to serve.

Worship Team:

As part of the Worship team your goal is to help each person prepare to hear from God. The worship band does not perform for the audience but invites the audience to participate with them as they worship Jesus. Therefore, the ability to blend voice or instrument to inspire adoration for God and not be a distraction from God is of great importance.

Service commitment: Our goal is to have as many instruments/voices to choose from as possible depending on the set list, time of year and specials planned. Currently our instrumentalists and vocalists are involved in some way nearly every Sunday.

Thursday Evenings – The worship band rehearses at the office on Thursday evenings from 7pm – to about 8:30 depending on what they’re working on. Your presence and flexibility is expected.

Sunday: 
-The band arrives between 8 and 8:30 depending on what is required for your instrument to be ready for sound check at 8:45.
-We have a run through of the service with sound/lights/video from 9-9:30
-Prayer time with ministry leaders/volunteers is at 9:30

 While every instrumentalist/vocalist should be willing to learn, you are expected to have a basic understanding of your instrument and how to use it successfully as part of a team.

Tech Team:

As part of the Tech team you are responsible for ensuring the Gospel is not just heard but experienced through lighting, visual effects and video as well as capturing that experience on camera. We don’t just hear God; we experience Him through sight, sound and touch. We make sure, through audio, video and lighting, that nothing hinders an individual from taking their first steps or next step with Jesus.

Service commitment: 6 months – Our goal is to have you serving every other Sunday.

Lights/sound – Arrive at CC at 8:00 for set-up and be ready for sound check at 8:45
Computer/Camera – Arrive at CC at 8:45 for order of service and cues
We will have a run through of all music and order of service from 9-9:30

Training is required for lights/video and computer operation – length of time depends on your aptitude and familiarity with our systems.

 Hospitality Team:

We want to do our best to make every guest feel welcomed at Real Life.  Once our guests get into the auditorium having a drink in their hands will immediately help them relax. We want our guest’s experience to be viewed as the best place with the best service they’ve been to all week! As part of our hospitality team your role is vital because every Sunday is someone’s first Sunday and you may be the first smiling friendly face they’ve seen all week!

Service commitment: 3 months

Hospitality Team –
-Before church you will need to be at the CC by 8:30 during your scheduled service time to get the coffee going and the tables prepped and ready.
