Member, Volunteer, and Staff Resources

Welcome, members, volunteers, and staff! This page is a new resource, and it is still growing as we learn what is needed. We hope it will serve as a central location for you to find information about volunteering, registering for events, requesting assistance from the communication team, and more. If you have suggestions of other items to include here, please contact Jodi Hoyt, Director of Communications. Thank you!

Volunteer schedules, planning center

Are you on a Sunday volunteer team? Schedules for Worship Assistants (lector, cantor, usher, acolyte), Broadcast Team, and Hospitality Team (captain, greeter, info desk, Katie’s Commons) are available through Planning Center. Login to set your blockouts (unavailable dates) or preferences (schedule frequency, preferred weeks, etc.) and see your upcoming schedule. If you’re a smart phone or tablet user, we highly recommend the app! It’s a bit more user friendly and will send push notifications to your device. Search Planning Center Services in your device’s app store.

Need help with the new system or want us to put in your blockouts or preferences for you? Contact Communications Director Jodi Hoyt.

we have an app!


Our new database includes a free app! With the Church Center app (available on Apple and Android), you can see upcoming events and register for them, easily contact the church, and view and edit your profile *information. Other features will also soon be added including check-ins and groups. You can also help us complete our database by adding a profile photo of yourself. Download it today!

*Please note that mailing addresses must be USPS-friendly. If you need to update your address, please ensure the following:

  • The address should not use any punctuation. When abbreviating street, for example, you should simply type St without a period.

  • Apartments/units/etc. should be listed on the same line as the address—again with no punctuation and with the abbreviation Apt not a number sign. For example: 123 Main St Apt 1.

  • The zip code must be the nine-digit zip, not just the first five digits. Use the USPS zip finder here.
