Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.1 Corinthians 12:27
POP TEAMS are for everyone at Prince of Peace! We believe God has called and equipped the whole church to serve, and when we engage with others in service, our faith comes alive.
POP TEAMS provide the backbone for how we organize the service that happens on a weekly basis here at the church, from WORSHIP, to WELCOMING OTHERS, to CARING for others!
We encourage everyone to find at least one POP TEAM and find a place(s) to serve that will make you come alive! No formal commitments here…being part of the team just says you are open to being asked if you and your abilities could meet a service need in the community.
We need lots of people to serve in diverse areas across our worship services. Our worship comes alive because of the many people who volunteer such as assisting ministers, ushers, readers, communion assistants, musicians, bread bakers, acolytes.
Do you enjoy meeting new people and making them feel welcome? From greeting people before worship to serving at the welcome desk and answering questions or baking cookies for visitors: the work of creating a fun and inviting atmosphere is a top priority for Prince of Peace.
Do you enjoy investing in small children? The Kids Team just might be the perfect fit for you! From serving in Sunday school to helping with VBS to leading or helping with children’s worship, there is a place for you in use your gifts on the Kids Team.
Youth Team members invest in the lives of students ranging from middle school to high school. From ministries like catechism, retreats, Discipleship Tours and lock-ins, you will join others in supporting and forming the faith of our youth.
Interested in serving others in times of need or grief? The Care Team is made up of people from across the congregation who are passionate about supporting others throughout all stages of life.
Like working with your hands? The Property Team is a great way to meet others while serving the church in the care of its facilities such as painting, mulching, snow shoveling, helping the Monday Morning crew, or even counting our weekly offerings.
Throughout the year there are lots of fun and exciting events that occur through Prince of Peace. The Events Team is a group of people from throughout the congregation that have a passion for making sure events and special occasions are enjoyable and fun!
The Media Team serves to tell the story of Prince of Peace and share our mission with the congregation and the community in compelling ways. Whether you tell stories with good old pen and paper or by using the latest technological tools, we want you on this team.
Service levels vary by team and within a team. A team member can be as involved as they are able and feel called. The team leader will reach out to their team with service opportunities where help is needed; it is up to the individual whether to say ‘yes I would like to serve’.
POP Teams do not have committee meetings. A POP team is a group of people who are passionate about a specific area of ministry; the team enables the matching of service needs with the gifts and passions of the POP community.
There is no limit to the number of teams a person can be part of. We encourage everyone to find at least one team where they can serve here at POP as part of the body of Christ.
It is ok to switch to a different POP team or to say that you are not able to serve on a certain POP team. Please let us know at the office and we will coordinate that change.
