Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. At Abundant Life, we value our mission to the world, which begins right here in our own community. Abundant Life members are involved in a variety of ministries, from helping in the office to serving in the Children’s ministry. Here are some ways that you can get involved!  

Compassion Ministry

Abundant Life Community Church is thrilled to be a part of Grass Valley’s Hospitality House ministry, which allows us to reach out to and serve Nevada County’s homeless population. We serve dinner every month, in addition to various special events throughout the year, and are always looking for volunteers. If you are interested, please email Cissy Murphy.  


The usher team at Abundant Life Community Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life. Contact the Church Office if you are interested in joining this team!  

Media & Technology

In an age of widespread technology, our media team has a lot of responsibility and opportunities. From recording and uploading our weekly sermons to our website, to running sound and media files during the service, to maintaining our website and Facebook account, there are many opportunities for you to use your gifting and expertise. Let the Church Office know if you would like to join our media team!

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. As a church, Abundant Life is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. We have a prayer chain that is ready, around the clock, to respond to the needs that arise within our church family. If you would like to be on this list, or would like to commit to praying regularly for our church, please let the Church Office know. You can also let us know if you have any prayer needs that you would like the church body to be made aware of.  

Children’s Church

It is our desire to see our children worship alongside their parents, so our worship service begins with people from all ages gathering in the sanctuary. However, in order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Abundant Life provides nursery and a children’s lesson in conjunction with the main sermon. We are always looking for volunteers to teach and assist in these classes. If you have a heart for children (of any age), and would like to serve in our Children’s Ministry, please contact the Church Office to receive an application.  

Praise Team

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved special events, such as funeral services. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Abundant Life Community Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you are interested in being a part of our Praise Team, let the Church Office know.  

Golden Empire Communion Service

On the second Friday of every month, at 1:30pm, Abundant Life Community Church provides a Communion Service at the Golden Empire Convalescent Home. We are always looking for people with a heart for the elderly, willing to serve communion, play the piano, lead hymns, recite Scripture. This is a great opportunity for our children to serve. If you would like to help, please let Kathie Floyd know.

Special Events

Abundant Life Community Church hosts several annual events that require a lot of manpower to run. These include our barbecues and picnics , Christmas Illumination Celebration, and more. If you are looking for a way to serve, we will be able to find a place for you to use your gifts, talents, and time! Please contact the Church Office to let us know of your interests.
