Volunteer

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Jesus set an amazing example for us as he served others. At Pea Ridge, we strive to follow that example as we seek to serve in a variety of ways. You are invited to use the gifts and talents that God has given you to further His kingdom. Whether it's greeting others through our first impressions team, working with kids or teens, using musical talent on our worship team, serving on a leadership team or a variety of other avenues ... God desires to work in and through you to glorify Him and bless others!

How do I volunteer with first impressions?

Our first impressions ministry is all about making people feel welcome on Sunday mornings and helping them find what they need. Before the pandemic we had a coffee and snack cart and as soon as it's safe to restart that effort, we will! For now, we make sure we safely greet people, lead them to a seat, invite them to complete a connection card and help them with details about ministries and facilities.
