Serving Our church
God has gifted each Christian with unique abilities to serve. While most of our service to one another naturally occurs in the context of friendship and within small groups, we also have a number of coordinated ways to serve together. Consider serving in one of our ministries noted below or let us know your interest below.
- Welcome Team
Our Welcome Team greets our members, hands out our Sunday Service Guides, and helps newcomers feel welcome. You could also serve as a guide to help newer families find the KidCheck stations or their Sunday School room. Contact Brad Claretto for more information.
- Meal Ministry
Our meal coordination efforts exist to periodically provide meals to grieving families who have lost a loved one, who have loved ones in the hospital, or who have just returned home from the hospital. If you're willing to join a team that provides meals, contact Peggy Flecker.
The nursery is open during our Sunday morning service. We need adults willing to serve 1-2 times each month, or to be on the substitute list. Contact Christi Wohlford for more information.
Volunteer to teach or to assist by supplying a second pair of hands in the classroom. The time commitment is 1 to 2 Sundays a month. Contact Lindsay Montei or Lori McCullough for more information.
- K-5 Sunday School
Our Sunday morning K-5 classes need teachers and substitues. The curriculum is planned and pre-printed and in each room ready to go on Sunday morning. Email Rachel Donahue or Angie Kolman.
Various ministries like MOMS (Making Our Motherhood Significant) and Habits of the Heart Women's Bible Study rely on volunteers to provide quality care to our littles. This enables mothers to be enriched through study and fellowship.
Middle School Ministry
High School Ministry
Our tech teams are important for keeping our Sunday service running smoothly. They assist by mixing audio, projecting slides, and producing live video. If you have an "ear" for sound and enjoy technology, please consider serving. No experience is necessary, but computer and technology experience is helpful.
practical care & In-Home Assistance
Transportation to appointments, shopping or running errands, pet sitting for a hospitalized person, periodic childcare, visiting a shut-in, etc.
- Electrician for Minor Repairs
Volunteer to change light bulbs and replace burned out ballasts in our building as needed (this would include climbing a ladder).
- Practical Help
Our desire is to serve widows, widowers, single moms, shut-ins, elderly, recently hospitalized and others who are not able to tend to some of the typical day to day tasks that include light maintenance, mowing grass, small paint jobs, etc.
For more information, email Bob Ash or text or call him at 317-692-1729.
serving our community
As a Church family, we know that we don't exist for ourselves. Since Jesus came to serve us rather than be served, we want to serve others by giving ourselves and our gifts to the communities around us. There are many ways that members of our church are serving in their communities according to their gifts and opportunities. Here are a few additional opportunities to consider.
Jim and Debbie Strietelmeier, along with others, lead the ministry at Neighborhood Fellowship Church, our sister church on the near east side of Indianapolis. They are vitally involved in working within their neighborhood to show the love of Christ. They care for the poor by ministering to individuals’ souls, minds, and bodies. Some of the ways this is carried out practically is by providing a hot meals program and a free medical clinic, housing the Neighborhood Academy Christian school (K-12), and offering counseling and crisis intervention. Neighbors can come to Neighborhood Fellowship and receive gently used clothing and furniture as well as visit the food pantry and organic garden.
Opportunities to serve include: serving the Sunday meal (ideal for families and small groups), donating food to their food pantry, donating pharmacy items for outreach clinic, helping during Vacation Bible School in June, volunteering to teach at Neighborhood Academy (academic and/or Bible), mentoring at risk children, tutoring, providing reading assistance, and donating time and materials for facility upgrades, maintenance, and repair. If you are interested in serving in any of these ways, please contact Debbie Strietelmeier.
ZIONSVILLE MEADOWS SENIOR CARE
There are two ways to become involved in serving at the local Zionsville Meadows Care Facility.
- First, Zionsville Fellowship provides worship services for residents every Sunday of the month. We enjoy singing and provide a biblical message, followed by serving ice cream, and a time of fellowship. We begin at 2:00 pm and are ready to leave around 3:15 pm. Please consider joining us for these services!
- Second, Zionsville Fellowship is also working to provide visitation to those living at Zionsville Meadows who do not have family or seldom have visitors. For those interested, this ministry is open to whatever time one has to be a friend to someone who needs one. The residents are very touched and greatly appreciate anyone who takes the time to visit.
If you are interested in these ministry opportunities, please email Bob Ash or call at 317-692-1729.
