  • Youth Volunteers Needed—Grace Youth, our ministry to junior and senior high students, is looking for volunteers to get involved with leading our students.  If you have a passion for reaching and equpping middle and high school students with the Gospel please contact our youth coordinator, Jon Hoppin (youth@gracefortcollins.org).
  • Grace Groups—This is one of the most important ways, along with regular worship, to get involved and find community at Grace Church.  Grace Groups exist to strengthen the whole body of Grace Church by the building up and growing deep in authentic community through GOSPEL fellowship, Bible Study, Prayer and Mission. For more information on groups, check out this page of our website.
  • Children’s Ministry Volunteers Needed—Far more than babysitting, nurturing the eternal souls of our little ones is a duty of the entire church body whether you are single, married, kids or no kids, empty-nesters or grandparents. Grace kids are your kids. We need volunteers to serve with Gracekids, which meets on Sundays during the worship service, and Gracelittles, our nursery ministry. Contact Stephanie Mikkelsen (gracekids@gracefortcollins.org).
  • Musicians Always Welcome! – Contact our music director, Trisha Adams, if you would like to offer your talents in this way. If you have musical talent you would like to share, Trisha will not track you down or ask you to participate. You can easily initiate the conversation by emailing trisha.martin.adams@gmail.com!
  • Sound Volunteers Needed—Sound Engineers needed to run the sound board on Sundays! No experience necessary – just come with a willing heart. We can train you! Rehearsals are at 9:00 A.M. Sunday mornings before the service at 10:30 A.M. Contact Trisha Adams (trisha.martin.adams@gmail.com).
  • Greeters Needed—If you have an arm and a face, you can serve as a greeter at Grace! No special talents necessary, simply welcome visitors, members and regular attenders with a smile and a bulletin before the worship service. If you are interested in becoming a Greeter at Grace Church, please contact Stephanie Mikkelsen (admin@gracefortcollins.org).
  • Facilities Team Volunteers Needed— At Grace, the Facilities Team helps with the exterior and interior responsibilities of the Church.  If something breaks we fix it. We set up and tear down tables and chairs for events (Ex: Christmas Party, Summer Grill-Outs) and whatever else can be done to keep the church in prime condition (Ex: snow removal, spread out ice melt, raking, etc.). If providing your time and talents to this team is something you could do for Grace, contact Jeff Clements (720-220-7955; Jeff.R.Clements@gmail.com).
