Room Reassignments at Russell Road. APC gives thanks to the Lord for the growth Del Ray Baptist has been blessed with, including their children’s and nursery ministries. Those activities have recently moved from the third floor to the second floor (the former “Adult Wing”). APC’s adult Sunday School classes will now meet in the chapel and in a third-floor classroom. And join the APC leadership in praying for continued growth and harmonious gospel partnership as we share space.
Volunteer Ministry Opportunities
Nursery Volunteers. The nursery is an important ministry to our littlest ones. Volunteers typically help out one worship service per quarter.
Contact: Sue Edwards, Office Manager; or Sarah Field, Nursery Coordinator
Coffee Ministry. The Coffee Ministry serves light refreshments each Sunday during fellowship time. We need new team members to serve on teams of four. Likely, you will only be scheduled one Sunday per quarter. Contact: Vicki Wolfe, Building Manager
Ushers: As an usher, you help the Deacons collect tithes and offerings and give a big smile to the folks in the pews as you pass the collection bags. With a few more ushers added to the team, this is a five minute task done in three months spread throughout the year. Contact: Lee Matthews
Social Committee. Community requires connection, and the Social Committee’s role is to foster that connection by dreaming up and planning fun events for the whole church. The committee typically meets 4-6 times per year to enjoy a great meal and plan events big and small. Contact: Josh Diack, Pastor of Congregational Life
Bus Drivers. APC’s bus ministry is looking for a few more drivers to attend to our seniors’ ministry and other church events. Driving the bus requires a Commercial Drivers’ License (CDL). Contact: Mike McMullen, Deacon
Communion Setup Volunteers Needed. Are you interested in preparing the elements for APC’s monthly celebration of the Lord’s Table? A few more volunteers are needed to serve quarterly. All the elements are on hand, and your role would be to prepare them for service. Contact: Sue Edwards, Office Manager
Openers Ministry While APC has grown considerably, and we are in need of additional volunteers to join the team that opens the building each Sunday for worship. Contact: Tom Mood
Fellowship Hall Re-set. We are in need of volunteers who are willing to “reset” the Fellowship Hall after Sunday School, in preparation for Sunday night ministries. This typically takes 10-15 minutes each Sunday, and involves putting all chairs and tables back into the storage room. It’s quick, it’s easy, and could use your leadership. Contact: Tom Mood
Audio: The audio ministry requires a heart for ministry, a mechanical mind, and an ear for music. Volunteers run sound once a month on Sundays and possibly serve for special services. Contact: Trevor Manor, Director of Music Ministries
Photography: Photographs of APC events are desired for the newsletter, Facebook, videos, etc. and require a photographer with an artistic sense and their own equipment. Contact: Trevor Manor, Director of Music Ministries
PROTAS/Youth Volunteers. Consider joining APC’s kingdom-building youth ministry by coming alongside teenagers as a friend and discipler. Cross-generational ministry is hard work, but what teens often more remember is the person who earned their trust.Contact: Adam LeRoy, Director of Youth Ministries
Explorers and Children’s Church Volunteers. Investing in the future is what volunteering in Children’s Ministry is about. Would you consider investing in our children at Children’s Church or Explorers? A few more pairs are needed for leading Children’s Church for 45 minutes during worship. More leaders—particularly men—are needed to lead Explorer classes from 5-7pm Sundays, including game time, dinner and a lesson.Contact: Leslie Bridge, Director of Children’s Ministries
