In the Church

Volunteer at Appleton Alliance Church

Whether it is serving with our Children's Ministry, or greeting people at the entrances on Sunday mornings, serving here at AAC is the best way to get connected! Below is a list of a few of our volunteer opportunities, but the possibilities are far-reaching in terms of connecting your skills and abilities with our needs. When you are ready to jump in, please contact us and choose "volunteering" from the contact form. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch to get you plugged in!

Welcome Team

GREETER
All members and visitors entering the church receive a warm smile, a firm handshake, and a cordial greeting, courtesy of the Appleton Alliance Church Greeters Ministry! The goal of this area of ministry is to help people feel welcome in our church. Greeters are stationed at various entrances to offer smiles, handshakes, and to give directions or take you where you need to go.

USHER
If it were not for an alert usher, Billy Graham would not have found a seat in the revival meeting where he came to know Jesus Christ. The ushers do much more than hand out the bulletin, they help facilitate the worship service. Ushers assist with seating, receiving offerings, distribution of the weekly bulletin and Communion, and help respond to emergencies.

COFFEE PREPARATION
Over 30 gallons of coffee are consumed at Appleton Alliance Church on a typical Sunday Morning! Many of those enjoying our coffee and specialty drinks are visitors. Helping with coffee service is a great way to meet others at Appleton Alliance!
