Say YES at Lakeside Downtown

There are a variety of opportunities available at Lakeside Downtown. No matter what you like to do or how you’re gifted, there’s something for you to do. Being part of a church family means that no one gets left out – everyone has something to do. So, if you’re not sure where to begin, we’ve got two suggestions:


  1. Pick something. Just scroll through the list, find something that interests you and go for it. We don’t expect a lifetime commitment to any one thing, and we’re happy to give you opportunities to try new experiences. So pick something and give it a shot. Once you’ve selected something, click the I’m Saying Yes button at the top or bottom of the page.
  2. Connect with a member of our staff team. We’d be happy to chat with you. Simply click the button below to get started.


Are you a people person? Do you like to make people feel welcome?

Be the first to welcome guests as soon as they arrive, answer questions, and make sure everyone (the newcomer and the regular attender) feels welcome! Greeters hand out programs, help people find seats, and collect offering during the gathering.

Kids Crew

Are you great at building relationships with a few kids? Enjoy helping out?

In this role, you support the Small Group Leader and serve as a much-needed extra set of hands. You are great at building relationships with a few kids.

Kids Leader

Are you great at building relationships with kids? Willing to invest in them?

We are looking for great people who want to have fun while investing in the lives of kids from birth to Grade 5. As a Small Group Leader, you consistently connect with a small group of kids through fun activities that help kids discover and fully follow Jesus. 

Kids Check-In

Are you a people person? Do you like making kids feel welcome?

You are committed to creating a first impression that is welcoming and friendly for kids and their families, especially first-time guests. By clicking a few buttons, you also help our new families navigate our secure check-in process.

Photo Team

Do you enjoy capturing memories?

Are you comfortable with a camera?

Our volunteer photography team takes pictures of our Sunday morning gathering and special events. Must have your own gear and be comfortable taking quality pictures that can be used on our website and social media. Flexible commitment.

Prayer Team

Are you looking for an opportunity to be a blessing to others?

Consider joining the Prayer Team on Sunday mornings. All that’s required is a heart for prayer.


Are you organized?

Can you think quickly on your feet?

The Security Team helps create a safe space on Sunday morning within the church and for our Lakeside Kids program.

Tech Team

Are you a more “behind the scenes” person. Love to learn?

We provide free (yes, free) training on the technology that we use each weekend to help facilitate the Sunday morning gathering. We're looking for volunteers to help with sound, lighting and more.  

Worship Team

Do you play an instrument? Sing? Would you like to help lead people in worship?

We place a high value on musical worship, understanding its value and power, being an important aspect of the gathering of believers on Sunday mornings. We are seeking experienced people for all instrumental and vocal positions.

Youth Leader

Do you have a heart for teens?

Available Wednesday nights?

We believe that a key ingredient in a teen’s faith journey is having consistent adults in their life who lead them to Jesus. We are looking for people with leadership abilities and a heart for teens to help on Wednesday evenings at Lakeside Central (students from both locations attend on Wednesday evenings).
