Exploring the living God in our neighborhoods...together.
At Ormewood, one of our four core values is to participate. To be a community we give and receive of ourselves and our time and each other. But there's not one way to participate at Ormewood -- below are ways where you can connect, serve, and enrich our community.
Making Sundays Happen
Each Sunday morning there are several moving parts to make the welcoming atmosphere and worship service happen. Want to help us make Sundays happen? We have several ways you can give of your talents to help. If you're interested specifically in participating in worship Sunday mornings, email Kate.
Pull out the chairs, roll out the carpets, and generally help us make the space ready for worship
Each week we bless the bread and the wine and come to the Table to remember Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. If you love to bake, sign up to contribute the bread for Sunday.
One of our core values at Ormewood is welcoming others -- sign up to help us do just that! Greet folks as they come in at the welcome table, introduce people to one another, show newcomers where they can get a snack or where they can sit.
We want coming to Ormewood to feel like coming home, and offering small bites is a part of our hospitality Sunday mornings. Sign up to bring snacks to share, either store bought or homemade. Questions? Email Diana.

BUILDING & GROUNDS
Team Lead: Nicholas
Our space is part of our ministry of presence - from the dog park to the parking lot where kids bike and the playground, we do our best to be available to our neighborhood. The B&G Team maintains and supports our physical space for the good of our community.
MISSION & OUTREACH
Team Lead: Becca
We hope to be of service to our neighborhood and greater community and to provide practical opportunities for engagement in mission. At Ormewood, what we mean by “mission” is participating in God’s reconciling mission in the world, which is to restore all of us to being neighbors and loving each other as such. We do this by being engaged in the work of God's justice for vulnerable people through giving, education, and participation.
Team Lead: Jenelle
In the worship we embrace creativity and possibility in crafting our worship - on the worship team, we consider worship series topics, art projects, spiritual practices, and more to facilitate our community's exploration of the living God.
FINANCE & PERSONNEL
Team Lead: Kathryn
Numbers and systems are as much ministry as worship and missions. Help our church live our mission in the very fabric of our function. In partnership with church leadership, we plan for the church’s financial well-being and sustainability and ensure that we are taking care of the employees of Ormewood Church.
Team Lead: Jenelle
From our Halloween Hot Dog Fest, Chalk & Chomp, Caroling, parades, movie nights, and so much more, we host events to enrich, educate, celebrate and just have some fun. This team plans, handles logistics, and makes possible these neighborhood events.
Children & Youth
Team Lead: Allie
We love our kids and our teens! Serve on our children and youth team and contribute to their fun and learning and our commitment to make sure our youngest members are valued and celebrated.
