Opportunities to Serve

To learn more about serving on any of our Ministry Teams, please let us know here.

Coffee Ministry

WestWay’s Coffee Ministry is a fun, creative, and welcoming part of Sunday mornings at West Way. Nothing quite says, “Come in and make yourself at home. We like having you here!” quite like a warm cup of joe, tea or hot cocoa.

The Coffee Team prepares a variety of coffee brews, hot teas, and a delicious hot chocolate for the 9am Sunday school hour + the 10:15 service. Our Team delights in serving you your morning beverage as well as extending warm, genuine smiles and engaging in life-giving conversation.

The Coffee Ministry advances the Kingdom of Heaven by serving our body as we would aim to serve Jesus himself and by supporting Three Avocados non-profit coffee company as well as Neema Village Missions.

Creative Arts Ministry

Our Creative Arts Ministry is made up of multiple teams:

  • Our Audio Team is responsible for all, in person and online, audio for our 10:15 services, as well as any special events which require audio support.  Every message, prayer, and song flow through the work of this team, using sound equipment and computer programs, before reaching the ears and hearts of the Body of Christ.  It is our mission to provide clear, intelligible sound that is distraction free to support the growth of the Kingdom of God.
  • Our Praise Team is made up of instrumentalists and singers who prepare songs to lead the Body of Christ in worship each Sunday morning. Not only do we prepare and perform songs, but we hold open the door to the Throne Room of God, and lead the Body of Christ to have an encounter with God through music and the arts. Has God gifted you with musical talent? Join our team today!
  • Our Stage Design Team is a great way to get involved at WestWay if you don't have time for a weekly commitment. This team gets together 4-5 times a year and designs and builds sets and lighting displays for the WestWay stage to help communicate the sermon messages. If you are gifted in the arts, in aesthetics, if you have construction skills, or want to learn something new, please join our team. There are jobs for people of every skill level, and this is a great team to build new relationships and exercise your God given creativity!
  • Our Video Team is a huge part of our 1015. The video team is responsible for everything that is broadcasted on our projectors along with what is being broadcasted to our stream. Video team consists of Camera Operators, Switcher Operators, Slide Operators, Videographers, and Video Editors. Video team contributes to the Kingdom by making our services accessible to those who aren’t able to be with us physically.

Embrace Grace

Embrace Grace is a faith-based support group for single women facing unplanned pregnancy. Do you know someone who could use encouragement, connection and unconditional love during an unplanned pregnancy? Embrace Grace is a 12 week support group on Wednesday nights, and includes dinner, classes and a free baby shower from WestWay.

Family Ministries

The Family Ministries Team is working to see families grow in unity, purpose, and love so that friends in our community can see who Jesus really is. We disciple the next generations at home, as well as in various student and kids ministry environments. Whether it’s at school, Wednesday night youth activities, Sunday morning kids ministry, Camps, CIY, or any of the other discipleship trips we take, our team would love to add you as a partner. If you’d like to commit to being a monthly or weekly presence for our kids or students, if you’d like to serve as a mentor for a trip once in a while, or if you can serve to help other parents and grandparents make disciples in their own homes there is a place for you on our team.

  • WestWay Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your children in mind! Every week, all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We would love to see you and your family visit WestWay Kids this week. Due to COVID restrictions, we are phasing in Children's Ministry beginning on Sunday mornings during the 1015.
  • WestWay Student Ministries At WestWay, we have a lot of fun, but we don’t want to settle for simply entertaining students with church games – in fact, we don’t want them to play church at all. We want to equip students to really be the church, the hands and feet of Jesus working in our community to share the hope and love that are growing out of their faith. We make the most of our time together on Wednesday nights at 7, as well as various discipleship trips we take throughout the year, by connecting teens with caring mentors who can help them get to know Jesus.
  • WestWay Parents and Grandparents We believe families- parents and grandparents have the primary role of discipleship with children and grandchildren and we believe the church has a primary role in equipping them to make disciples in the home. We desire to be a resource to those families in this process. We currently have a Grandparenting Team and a Parenting Team is coming soon.

Garden Ministries

There are two Garden Ministries here at WestWay Christian Church. One produces vegetables and one provides a beautiful and peaceful flower garden for people to enjoy.

  • The Flower Garden Ministry Team works to provide a beautiful, peaceful environment in the Memorial Garden just outside the main lobby of the building. This includes putting out mulch, weeding, watering, pruning and cleaning up in the Fall.
  • The Vegetable Garden Ministry Team is a group of people that gather together to have fellowship with each other while preparing the soil, planting the seed, watering, weeding, pruning, harvesting, and distributing the crop to the church body and community, as well as cleaning up and winterizing at the end of the year. The team welcomes all who want to participate. Friends and neighbors are encouraged and welcomed. No prior knowledge of gardening is necessary. Our reward comes in seeing people enjoy God's bounty and providing fresh vegetables to some who may not have access/funds for them.

Greeting Team

Our WestWay Greeting Team is a valuable part of our Sunday services. Our purpose is to make all of our guests feel welcome, loved and comfortable. We want them to experience God's presence the moment they pull into our parking lot and enter the building. There are many opportunities to serve on this team, some of which are, greeting at the front doors, working at the Welcome Center, checking in guests as they arrive, ushering, and monitoring the lobby during the 10:15.

Hands & Feet

We assemble and organize a team of people with specific skills and talents like carpenters, electricians, and mechanics, to assist people within the community that have tasks that they aren't able to accomplish on their own, such as painting a fence, or repairing an electric outlet or changing a headlight. Our desire is to share the love of Christ with the surrounding community by using the skills and talents God has given us.

Kitchen/Food

When WestWay plans an event that has a meal included, we call on the Kitchen/Food Team. This team will minister to the people at the event by helping with set up for the event, shopping for supplies, preparing and serving food, and cleaning up after an event. Food brings people together. Many great relationships have been started and strengthened around a table filled with good food and conversation. Families will find that this is a great place to serve together.

Missions

WestWay's Mission Team meets to plan events and communication that will facilitate a relationship between Westway and the missionaries and mission partners that we support.

We do that by developing personal relationships with them, so that we can bring their prayer needs, financial requests, and their praises before the congregation.
