Volunteer

It’s no secret that we can’t do what we do without our team of dedicated volunteers. From the stage to the parking lot, they work hard to serve God by serving others. You’ll find volunteers doing anything from sweeping floors to playing instruments to teaching students. We find that when people volunteer together, there’s an opportunity for deeper connections to be made. Check out the volunteer opportunities at Waypoint by clicking one of the tabs on the left. If you have general questions about serving, send us a line at info@waypointcommunity.com.

If you are interested in volunteering your time, gifts, and talents in one of these Connection Teams, please contact Tara Towner at tara@waypointcommunity.com.
