Serving Within Hilliard UMC

Looking for a way to serve within the church? Try out one of these options!

Safe Sanctuaries certification is required for all those volunteering with children, youth, or vulnerable adults. Details here.

Welcome Teams

You can be the smile someone needs on a Sunday morning!

The Welcome Teams greet people arriving for in-person worship, answer questions, help folks find what they need and show people where to go (like the nursery or the Godly Play room for kids), assist with seating and special needs as needed, take attendance, and put the financial offerings away. It’s a great way to meet people and connect more deeply at HUMC!

Serve once a month or sub in as you’re available

If you want to serve as you’re available without making a regular commitment, sign up for the SUB team – we’ll reach out when we need people, and you can sign up if you’re available that Sunday, committing just a few days ahead of time.

Or you can make a monthly commitment to serve once a month at the same service (e.g. 2nd Sunday of the month at 10:30am in the Sanctuary).

Pray for Others

We’d love to add you to our email list for twice-weekly prayer concerns, so you can use your gift of prayer to pray for others.

Nursery Staff

Our staff nursery workers care for children during Sunday worship.

Each staff worker is trained in our Safe Sanctuaries policy and has passed a background check, and several are trained in infant/child CPR.

If you’re interested in working in the nursery, please contact Lindsay Robinson or use this form:
