Ready To Serve? Get Involved.

In addition to belonging to a Life Group or attending a class, another great way to experience community is by joining an ongoing ministry team, by volunteering for a special ministry or helping out with a mission project. So, when you’re ready, there’s always an outlet for your talents – from playing the piano to using a hammer, running a video camera to stuffing envelopes – your effort will help make a difference in the lives of others!

These include things like Worship Arts, Children’s or Student Ministries, Guest Services, etc. They are active year round. Contact the church office (419-782-0861) or send an email to team@firstchurchdefiance.com if you are interested in finding out how you can help.
