Team Leads: Positions & Contact Information

**Should issues arise that cannot be resolved, take the issue to your Team Lead – if they are unable to resolve the issue, it will be brough to Pastor Sean.

  • Team Leads are in charge of scheduling their respective serve teams, so for any scheduling issues, they are your point of contact!
Serve Team Huddle

Purpose: To allow all of our serve team members to gather to receive important information and have a moment together in prayer and fellowship to posture our hearts to serving the Lord before we begin serving.

  • Times to be aware of:
    • Arrive early – serve team huddle STARTS at 8:20 am
      • Be sure to grab a Serve Team Member Tag when you check in!
      • If you are coming late, be sure to contact your Team Lead.
    • Serve Team Check-in: 8:15 am at the Information Table
    • Serve Team Huddle: 08:20 am in the Sanctuary
  • Accept requests & commit EARLY – this makes Sundays go smoother for everyone, and allows our teams to operate on a system, rather than gathering serve team members at the last minute.
  • Communion Sundays: On weeks we do communion, we will do communion at the Serve Team Huddle as a group! That way, all of our serve team members are able to take part in this sacrament as a group
  • Please do your best to clean up your area after service – many hands make light work!
  • Please grab a serve team member tag – this helps guests know who is available to answer their questions.

How to Set Your Serve Team Preferences:

  • See Planning Center dropdown above first!
    • Go to Planning Center’s services website here once you’ve joined a serve team. As of now, this must be done on a computer/desktop, not on your phone or mobile device. (You will receive e-mail confirmation giving you access).
    • Login with the same user / password as the Church Center app in step 1
    • Click your profile picture in the upper right corner and select “my profile” from the dropdown
    • Preferences will be visible on your profile at the top. Click Edit.
      • You can now edit how many times a month to serve.
      • Your Household members who also serve will be visible. By clicking the dropdown, you can choose how you wish to serve alongside with your spouse or other household members!


Important Security Information

Kids Ministry: In order to keep our children's ministry secure, no one is allowed onto our Kids Ministry hall except TrailKids serve team members that are scheduled for that particular Sunday.

Staff Hallway: The only serve team members allowed on the staff hall once service has begun are band members during transitions in worship.

Be aware of who is running security for the morning - if anything or anyone seems suspicious, bring it to the attention of the assigned Security Lead.
