Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as handing out church bulletins, to serving tables at a meal. Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church.

Impact Teams

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, VBC has small Bible studies that we call our “Impact Teams”. The size of the group is anywhere from 4 to 8 people. At a time designated by your group leader, you can participate in an Impact Team study.

Kidz Ministry – B.L.A.S.T.

Each Sunday morning & Wednesday evening, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of our church is recognized for their meaningful interaction with kids.

Youth Ministry – ILLUMINATE

Each Sunday morning & Wednesday evening, our students get to participate in their own classes and worship setting. The difficult topics they are having to deal with are not necessarily new as much as they are more available due to social media world we live in. Each of our volunteers are carefully screened and trained in helping our students to Biblically deal with issues that they  

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of our church provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Ministry

Our Women’s Ministry gives the ladies at VBC special times of interaction and fellowship. 

Men’s Ministry

Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Men’s Ministry is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages. 

Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of Grace Community provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet with and help younger believers grow in Christ.

Mission Outreach

 

Music & Audio/Video

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in sound & audio. Still others get involved in video. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  

Ushers / Security

The Usher/Security Team at our church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook feed for additional church communication.  

Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at our church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
