Welcome to the team! Jesus said that our witness to the world begins with our commitment to one another (John 13:34-35). When you step up to serve your Christian brothers and sisters as Christ modeled and taught, everyone wins. Serving on a team is a great way for you to make and deepen friendships, make a difference in the lives of others, and to shine as Jesus envisioned (Matthew 5:14-16).
One of the best ways to care for families is to care for their kids. God has entrusted our church with a LOT of kids and there’s always a need on Sunday mornings for small groups leaders, classroom assistants, administrative support, and help with setting up and taking down.

Think about how many life-altering decisions are made during the teen years! We’re always in need of caring mentors who can help us come along side teens and their families during these formative years. Our Youth Group meets on Wednesday nights during the school year and we offer special programs and events year-round.

This is the team that brews the coffee and keeps our treat table filled with goodies on Sunday mornings.
A team of committed men and women pray for every request that comes our way. We also make personalized prayer available after every Sunday service.
Worship & Tech
This team includes our worship band, audio mixing, and video projection. The people who decorate our Worship Center are also part of this team. If you love music, electronics, or making things beautiful start a conversation with Jason.

Sunday Ushers, Greeters, and Welcome Team
Who doesn’t like to feel welcomed? First time guests visit Emmanuel almost every Sunday. This is one of the teams who communicates, “We’ve been expecting you” to those brave souls who take that big first step of a first visit. There opportunities to serve for those who love to meet new people and those who prefer to work behind the scenes.
We gather around the Lord’s Table on a monthly basis. This is the team that prepares and serves this holy meal.
Sunday Set-up & Take Down
If it’s hard for you to commit to a specific week, we can always use people to help with set-up or take-down. We can train you in so you’ll be ready to jump in as your schedule allows.
Cleaning and/or Maintenance
We have an office in Shoreview that gets used a lot! Be part of a team of volunteers who saves our church thousands of dollars in custodial fees so we can invest them in better ways.
