There are many opportunities to serve at Sovereign Grace Church. Besides meeting the needs of the church and allowing individual gifts to be used for the glory of God, these ministry teams provide contexts for growing together as a local body of Christ and reaching the community with the love of Christ. The primary requirement to join any of these teams is a desire to serve. If you don't know where you'd best be suited, we'll help you explore the options. Below are listed the main areas where members of Sovereign Grace Church can choose to serve. Chris Watkins, our deacon of Sunday morning services, would be happy to hear from you!
We set up a bookstore each Sunday morning with resources including books and music recommended by our pastors. The bookstore team sets up the bookstore each week, assists customers, and aids in sales.
Children's Ministry Team
The children's ministry team, which includes teaching and assisting roles, is responsible for coming alongside parents of Sovereign Grace Church in teaching our children about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each Sunday morning this team provides a safe environment for children to interact and learn.
The greeters are the front-runners of the Sunday morning meeting, responsible for welcoming guests, introducing them to other church members, and answering any questions they may have.

The prayer team meets each Sunday morning to pray for the pastors and congregation in preparation for worship and the preaching of the Word.
