It’s difficult to actually volunteer or get involved in a church, particularly if you don’t know anyone in the area where you’re volunteering or if little kids aren’t really your thing. So here are a few unexpected ways you can serve your home church that might be a little more up your alley:
Breakfast with the brew
At this point, every church has coffee (or, at least, they should). But not all churches have something to go with coffee. Volunteer to bake some muffins or banana/zucchini/pumpkin bread to go with the caffeine.
Are you a great designer who wants to use your talents for your church? Fire up InDesign and off er to create your church’s weekly programs. It’s a task that oft en gets overlooked.
Lyrics, readings, outlines—all likely part of a carefully designed presentation. If you’re good at staying on schedule and creating presentations, this might be a great place for you to serve.
Chances are your church communicates with its congregation via email or social media. If you’re a good writer, you might be the perfect person to drive the efforts to get your church’s mes-sage out in creative ways.
Start something new
This might be the most daunting, but it’s also perhaps the most exciting. Off er up your talents and see how you can best serve your church.
