Service Opportunities


Serving at Garden City Christian Church is a great way to use your gifts while getting to know others! We encourage everyone to be a part of a team so they are serving consisitently in a way that is meaningful. Teams at GCCC vary in size and frequency.



    Every Sunday is someone's first Sunday. We are building and developing teams of people to welcome new and returning guests each Sunday. This includes greeters, prayer partners, parking lot attendants, bulletin coordinators, and Connection Center helpers. If you would like to help, please contact Phil Newton.

    • Greeters: Church members who welcome the people God has brought to our church have the opportunity to influence these visitors in a positive way. 2 Corinthians 5:20 states, "We are Christ's ambassadors." Serving as a greeter is representing Jesus Christ in that first important connection with visitors. Contact Sondra Umphress if you would like to be a part of this team.

    • Prayer Partners: Prayer is very important in the life of every Christian and we strive to encourage every Christ follower to be a praying servant. Prayer connects us to God and what He is doing.
      Please pick-up the prayer list each Sunday morning at the Connection Center. You can also receive the weekly prayer list via email along with any updates during the week. To join, send an email to gccc@gardencitychurch with “Prayer list” typed in the body. If you have a prayer request you may write it on your yellow attendance card on Sunday mornings or call the church office. 

    • Visitation: People matter to both God and us. Individuals need to know that they are missed and loved. Join the team to show you care about those who are: Homebound, Hospitalized, or in a Nursing Home. Contact Brian Gilroy, Lead Minister.

      Tips: Spend time listening, Give the gift of touch, Offer to pray with/for them, Leave something with them as a reminder of your visit like a card, a flower, last week's bulletin or sermon cd, food, etc.

  • Worship production & Praise Teams

    Serving on a worship team is an excellent opportunity to honor God and help other people pursue God. We are a team of musicians, vocalists, technical volunteers, and worshipers in every sense.  We exist to create an environment that is a catalyst for heart change and to explore ways in which God can move us to be closer to Him through worship.

Serve at Community Events

These events are intentionally designed to make a big impact in our community in a short amount of time. Events happen quarterly and are a great way to begin serving. When you give just a few hours you are able to make a big difference in our community.

You can also serve on your own anytime or be on the watch throughout the year for opportunities to serve with our Strategic Ministry Partners in the community.
