Serving Teams

One of the most important ways to connect is to serve in the church. We have a multitude of opportunities where you can serve and make a difference. If you aren’t sure which team is a good fit for you, contact our Director of Connections, Sharon Sweeney, to help you find a place.

Connections Team

Serve on a team that exhibits one of our core values - Purposeful Hospitality!

Greet, usher, or welcome people as they arrive on our campus, or help with our coffee ministry. Ensure that our guests and all who attend feel God's love and are connected to the faith community of Springfield First. This is a great way to meet and connect with people.

  StudentLife Ministry Teams

We are looking for volunteers to serve our students in creative and flexible ways.

  • Support students by providing a meal. Cook or bring a meal to one of our Sunday night services. Sign up here.
  • Small Group Leaders: We need adults who want to engage with students on a conversational level. We hope to serve our students with adults from different age groups and walks of life. Each student has a different need, and you never know what need you might be filling! You do not have to lead a small group; you could fill a role as an assistant instead.
  • Sound/Video: We need individuals who are willing to train and/or oversee students on a sound board or running video for the youth service. This would be a commitment only on Sunday nights.
  • Adult Presence: We also need adults who just want to love and pour into our students. Be available to encourage students and provide them with a good example of what it looks like to be a Jesus follower.
