"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Mark 10:45)
There are many different opportunities to serve at Church at Bergen. As a new church plant, we are in the process of developing our local and global mission opportunities. However, our immediate need is for committed people to serve in various roles on Sunday morning as we gather together. Below, you will find the various ways that you can serve along with the proper way to express interest.
Hospitality: Greeting, Cafe, and Parking
Hospitality exists to make people feel welcome to Church at Bergen and create a community environment on Sunday mornings and to display the grace and love of Jesus to the stranger and those who visit our community. This is through greeting, serving at the cafe, and just intentionally creating conversation. We want to welcome, serve and connect with others to help them on a path towards understanding the gospel through our church. If interested in serving with hospitality, please contact:
At Church at Bergen we care about meaningful community and connection. Our Connect Team is often a first point of contact for new visitors, providing a warm welcome to new faces as well as helping communicate upcoming events and providing answers regarding questions people have about our church. If you are interested in serving with Connect Team, please contact Crystal Navarro.
Production is our team that operates all of our a/v equipment for our Sunday morning gatherings. This includes sound equipment, lighting, and video projection. We do not desire to use technology for its own sake, but to use our technological gifts and tools for the glory of God. If interested in serving with A/V production please contact Julia Harrison.
Kids Ministry (BergenKIDS)
BergenKIDS is our children’s ministry on Sunday mornings for kids (infant - 5th grade). We need many volunteers to assist the ministry through welcoming new families, watching the infants, participating with children in crafts and lessons, teaching weekly lessons, as well as serving the various needs. If interested in serving in Bergen Kids, please contact our BergenKIDS Director, Michele Graglia.
Our hope is to utilize the musical talents of the people of Church at Bergen. We love bringing glory to God through music at Church at Bergen and strive for both depth and passion as we lead people in songs of worship for every season of life. If interested in serving in the music ministry, please click here to fill out an online interest form.
Church at Bergen is a place where we encourage people to discuss, discover and ask questions about the truth of who God is. We also desire to be a community of people who gladly bear one anothers burdens and go to the only source of help in our time of need. Our prayer team is a group of people who desire to be available on Sunday mornings after the service to listen, encourage, and pray for the needs of people who attend. If interested in serving in the prayer team, please contact Donna Hoitsma.
Although the church is the people, we still gather in a building. Unfortunately, buildings and facilities do not always remain in perfect shape. If you have the skills of carpentry, handiwork, etc. and would like to serve in this capacity then please contact Don Hoitsma.
The world we live in today is not always safe. We want to create an environment at the church where families feel safe to worship. If you are someone who has a desire to provide a safe and secure environment for the church, then please contact John Ydo.
We are so grateful for the ways that God has blessed the church with generous hearts. Because of this, we want to steward it well with people who are faithful, detail-oriented, and trustworthy. If you would like to serve on the finance team please contact Stephanie Santangelo.
Are you creative and desire to help create things for the church? We have a creative team that assists with online graphics, videos, etc. If you are interested please contact Julia Harrison. Interest form here: Creative Team Interest Form.
