Volunteers in this ministry help our newest members find a Bible Class and/or a Small Group that fits them best. They introducing them to others at Prestoncrest, and help them identify opportunities to make new friends. Volunteers are encouraged to attend all the PC101 classes to get to know our newest members.
These areas of service are primarily done on Sunday mornings during, before, or after worship service. Some are jobs that can be done to help with preparation for Sunday. All are wonderful ways to help bring praise to God during our time together as a church family!

The baptismal assistance ministry supports the baptismal process. Activities range from unlocking and maintaining the preparation rooms to providing guidance and assistance when needed for the actual baptism.
Open a door and be a friendly face! Greeters are needed at each entrance of the church building each Sunday. Shifts are for either the 8:30 am service or the 10:45 am service. Easy, fun, and rewarding!
The homebound communion ministry ensures that all homebound church members are able to share in the communion meal each week and is coordinated through our Bible Classes.

This is the go-to place where visitors and new members come to find out more about Prestoncrest. Volunteers provide information about Bible classes, room locations, general information, brochures, and give out gifts to first-time visitors.
Ushers serve on Sunday mornings by handing out bulletins, collecting communion & contribution trays, and making sure members and guests feel welcome with an open door and smiling face. They also help latecomers find a seat, when needed.
