For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...
By faith in Jesus Christ and the waters of baptism, God makes us into a new family. As a family, we are to love one another by serving one another, and the way we love and serve testifies to the goodness of God's grace. Each of our ministry teams offers you the change to grow in love, to connect with your family, and to use your gifts and talents for the sake of others. Our hope is that our love will not only encourage the church, but cultivate hospitality and welcome for all who enter our doors.
Service should not be burdensome, but a joy. While we encourage consistency, we understand how life can get complicated and plans change, so service at Grace Pasadena is flexible. Each ministry team works together to make sure all needs are filled. At the same time, ministry teams will work with you to find the best possible ways for you to participate.
Ministry Teams & Opportunities
There are many different opportunities for you to serve, connect with others, use your talents, and grow your love for God and one another.
Say Yes to a team or two (or three!)
Sunday Welcome Team
We help set the tone for Sunday worship by inviting everyone in and making sure everyone is seen and encouraged when they walk through our doors. We also help connect people to any information about our service and life together throughout the week.
Sunday Ops: Setup & Breakdown
We prepare for Sunday worship by taking care of all the logicstics and details, many of which are behind-the-scenes. We're responsible for sound set up, preparing Communion, and decorating. And we also help put it all away! This team helps set the stage for our community to experience God's love on Sundays.
Events & Family Meals
An important Gospel image is that of a feast. Jesus is always feasting with his people. In fact, the weekly Lord's Table points to the eternal feast Jesus is preparing. We continue the party through snacks and Family Meals after the service and special events as they arise. If you love to party and connect people, then join us in planning meals and events for Grace and our neighbors.
Musicians and singers from the congregation lead the congregation in singing on Sundays and at special services. If you have musical skills and talents, then help Grace Pasadena make a joyful noise! We welcome all kinds of instruments and musical styles.
Grace Children's Ministry
Since the church is the first family for Christians, we encourage all members of Grace Pasadena to walk alongside parents and guardians to help raise our kids in the faith. If you are college aged or older consider teaching and mentoring our kids and nurture their faith.
Grace Youth Ministry
Say yes to authentic faith, mentoring and friendships, deep conversations, big questions, silly games, pizza, and experiencing God's love in middle and high school.
