Wanting to Get Involved?

Christ told his followers to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values at OBUMC is to be Christ’s Light in our community. It begins with our own neighbors and then spreads overseas and around the world. Members are involved in a variety of ministries and the list keeps on growing. We encourage our congregation to follow their passions and we try to help them harness their God given gifts to radiate Christ’s love.

MINISTRY TEAMS
Whether it be youth, children, Sunday School, or any of the other church ministries at OBUMC, they all take teams of people working together in order to function. Contact a ministry leader today to find out how best you can pitch in.
Join our adult choir in the 10:30 Traditional service as they lead the congregation in our favorite hymns and put on special services such as the Christmas Cantata. 
The Praise Band leads worship during the 8:30 Contemporary Service in the Brooks Center. Attendees love their smooth styling.

A Stephen Minister is a lay person from our congregation that is trained to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
NURTURE MINISTRY
People in this ministry devote their time to others in the church. Their roles can be filled in many different ways, but the mission is always the same: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 
We are active in sending missions and supporting projects with our money, materials and prayers. Each year, teams visit foreign nations and complete a variety of projects.

Withouth these folks, our wonderful nursery and the whole congregation might come to a halt! OBUMC has paid staff who work in the nursery on Wednesdays and Sundays, but they can always use a helping hand especially on busy occasions!
There’s so much these people do (young & old), that it’s hard to mention everything. But click here for a description of what each duty entails and contact the church if you feel called to help in this way!
We’re always looking for help on Wednesday nights! Whether you can be here at 3:30 to begin prepping for dinner at 5:00 or you can stay late and help clean up around 6:30, we need you!

Every day of every week, members of our church and the community at large help deliver meals from Hazel’s to those who need it. The experience of meeting these people and helping when sometimes they have nobody else is a joy for those who volunteer.
AUDIO/VISUAL TEAM
As the church grows, so does our need for Audio and Visual help! Both services each week need teammates to begin recording services and making sure everyone can enjoy the message.
EVENT MINISTRY TEAM
If you’re someone who just wants to jump in and help, no matter the cause, then this ministry is for you. You’ll be lending hands to events in all areas of OBUMC’s outreach. Just contact the office to sign up!

For many, service is intertwined with planning. OBUMC’s committees plan not only the events themselves but also the direction different ministries are going to be taking over the years. There’s a list of committees and contacts at the page above.
OFFICE AIDES
We always need help! So if you’re into stuffing bulletins, organization, cleaning, or just hanging out with a smile on your face then let us know!
