Serving others clears the way for more generous living in all parts of our lives. It connects us more deeply to one another and to God.

Webster Hills provides a number of ways to serve both within the church, around our city, and in places far away. We welcome fresh ideas and the commitment to start new ministries. If you would like to create something new, just talk to the Serve Team or a member of our staff.

Serve in Church

We promise not to overwhelm you, but the best way to get connected at a church is to get involved with a ministry team.  Teams are open to everyone, membership is not required. There are many opportunities to serve and help out around the church. From office volunteers and serving during church on Sunday mornings, to being part of a Ministry Team.
