Pit Crew

The Pit Crew team sets the spirit of hospitality for the entire church to welcome each person like they are family.

First Impressions

 What We Do:

Greeters:  Whether a first time guest or a regular attender, greeters are the first to welcome people for worship.  Greeters stand at the front door, offer a warm greeting, and guide people in the right direction.

Hospitality:  While friendly reception begins at the front door, it is extended by offering people a snack and drink.  Each Sunday, the Hospitality Team provides food and beverages for people to enjoy.

Ushers:  As people enter the sanctuary, ushers serve the congregation throughout the worship service.  By handing people bulletins, passing out Peak pads, and collecting the offering, ushers are an important part of the worship service.

 

How to Get Involved:

-Become a Greeter and welcome people into worship

-Help out in the kitchen to help set up and take down the food and drinks on Sunday

-Bring food to share with the congregation

-Become an Usher for one of our worship services

Scripture Reading: Scripture is the foundation of our worship services, and the Peak relies on lay people to recite from God’s Word during each worship service.

Communion Servers: Communion is a bond that unites us to Jesus and to each other. Communion Servers present the bread and cup to the congregation to celebrate this holy sacrament.

Special Worship Services: Throughout the year, the Peak holds special worship services. Some of these services require have different worship elements and need a different set up. This team helps set-up the church during these services.

Discipleship

Discipleship is cultivating a deep devotion to Jesus through developing spiritually formed rhythms that shape our identity in Christ.

Discipleship

What We Do:

Peak Groups:  People were created to be in relationships, they are essential for life and God designed us that way.  At the Peak, we have groups where relationships are cultivated.  Each group may look and feel a little different, but each group is determined to live in a rhythm where we spend time growing our relationship with God, investing in our relationships with each other, and reaching out to a broken world.

Classes:  Throughout the year we offer specific classes to equip and teach people ways to engage living a life with Christ.  We offer Bible studies, topical studies, seasonal studies, financial studies, prayer studies and so much more.  These classes are offered to provide information that can then be used for transformation.
