Serve at Avery

God creates each person with abilities, gifts, and passions to be used in the life of the church. Where is God calling you to serve? Talk with Pastor Erik about how God may want to use you in the life of Avery UMC.


 It’s time once again to look at your collective calendars to schedule our volunteers for the many areas of Sunday ministry.

 Volunteer Ministry Opportunities:




Nursery Assistants

PowerPoint Controllers

Altar Stewards

Communion Stewards

Sunday School Teachers / Helpers

If you are currently serving in any of these areas, please inform the church office of any status updates and unavailable Sundays.

If you would like to be added to any of these ministries, please inform the church office of your availability and willingness to serve.

Grass Cutting

Despite the continued wintry weather, Avery UMC is planning for grass cutting season. Additional volunteers are needed for this necessary task. Please see/contact Buddy Batson or Doug Garrone if you can assist.

We’re always looking for people to serve in:

Children’s Ministry

  • Rotation Sunday school – most volunteers only need to commit to one Sunday every 4-8 weeks.
  • Nursery on Sunday mornings
  • Events

Youth Ministry: Research shows that in order for faith to “stick” after high school, youth need at least 5 adults in addition to their parents to model Christian faith for them. Are you called to be one of these persons for our youth? Contact Buddy Batson to see how you can help.

Avery Delivers

Deliver meals to new parents, shut-ins, those recovering from surgery or illness, or anyone who might be finding meal preparation difficult. Meals do not need to be homemade. They can be already hot from the grocery store, takeout, or whatever you choose. Avery Delivers not only delivers food, but also joy, fellowship, and the love of Christ.
