Serve

Serving on a ministry team is an opportunity to get connected and to make a difference while developing your God-given gifts and passions. Each member of our church has something important to contribute, and that both the Church at large and its individual members flourish most when everyone is involved. Our Sunday gatherings are only possible because of the time and energy of our church community, and we're always looking for more people to serve and lead in these areas.

Ministry Teams

Hospitality

The role of the hospitality team is to set the stage for the first impression for people who come in the doors of our church. We welcome newcomers, give directions and do our best to connect with the people around us. We give out Connection Cards. We care about details and we step out of our comfort zones. We do this because we want everyone who comes to The District Church on Sunday to feel welcome and at ease.

Hospitality Team Members generally serve one Sunday per month. There are two time slots. First service slots are from 8:00a - 11:00a and second service slots are 10:15a - 1:30p.

Kids’ City provides a safe and fun environment that works to equip and support parents to raise their children knowing, loving, and following Christ. We take very seriously our responsibility to care for these kids and do everything in our power to keep them safe, supported, and pointed to Jesus.

Most volunteers are responsible for praying for our ministry, families and serving at least once a month. We have a lead teacher in each classroom who leads the Bible story based on pre-planned lessons and related activities.

All team members are required to pass a background check & attend a Kids’ City specific training.

At The District Church, our simple efforts at serving our city are, above all, rooted and grounded in love and prayer. We practice our faith by proclaiming hope and loving generously.

Serve our World

We are compelled by the Bible’s vision that God’s message is good news for all people, not just people in D.C., but in the DMV. And not just in our region, but across the world. It is a message that is good news for all of humanity. God’s message is a global one.
