Join our vision to serve the West Metro in the name of Jesus

CURRENT SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES

Dressember

Every year, thousands of advocates wear a dress or tie each day in December. This serves as a conversation starter to educate others about modern slavery. A group at Wayzata Free (men and women) have participated the past few years. If you are interested in donating to our team or learning more, contact Bruce Droogsma at bruce.droogsma@wayzatafree.org


Scripture Reading (January prayer + fasting)

We are adding a new element to our time of prayer and fasting in January. We will read through the whole Bible, out loud, in the Sanctuary. Reading begins following the service on January 5 and continues around the clock until the afternoon of January 8. Click here to sign up for a 20-minute reading slot. 


Drivers Needed


Drivers Needed

Volunteer drivers are needed Sunday mornings once or twice a month to pick up Chinese students at the U of MN or Northwestern and bring them to church when our regular volunteer drivers are gone. Contact Sai at sai.wang@wayzatafree.org.


Ushers Needed

We are looking for people to help usher on Sunday mornings. This is a great way to meet new people and fill a very important need. Ushers help welcome guests and regular attenders to church, they assist people in finding a seat, they hand out the weekly and take the morning offering. You can sign up to serve as often or as little as you like. Anyone over the age of 12 can become an usher. Contact Bruce Droogsma at bruce.droogsma@wayzatafree.org to sign up or to get more information.


Hospitality Team

We are looking for a few more people to serve on Sunday mornings in the areas of hospitality including greeting, welcome desk, coffee and the coffee corner. This position is a great way to meet our church members and fill a very important need. The tasks vary by position but you can sign up to serve as often or as little as you like. Some positions in the coffee corner are limited by age but greeting and welcome positions are great "family serving together" options. Contact Bruce Droogsma at bruce.droogsma@wayzatafree.org to sign or get more information. 


Meal Connect

The app, Meal Connect, allows companies across the metro to reduce food waste while feeding the hungry. Click here to read a Star Tribune article about this unique ministry. Contact Ron Frick at rhfrick@msn.com if you are interested in serving.
