Serving Opportunities

We have many great ways for you to get connected at Oakbrook. One way is through our serving opportunities. You can meet others that enjoy doing some of the same things you do and at the same time, you can serve others that attend Oakbrook.

Here are a few areas you might want to consider:

  • Ushering - hand out programs, collect Love Gifts, assist with seating

  • Media - coordinate running the slides during the Sunday service

  • Sound - adjust the volume and when microphones are turned on and off

  • Hospitality - make beverages and snacks for the Sunday service

If you are interested in trying out any of these or other serving opportunities, please contact the Oakbrook office. If you find the opportunity is a great fit for you, then you can stick with it. On the other hand, if it's not what you expected, no problem. Feel free to try something else.
