Serving Teams

Serving teams meet practical needs in our church family, from running cameras for the live stream on Sunday mornings to mowing the grass through the week.  There are a variety of ways to serve for all types of interests.

Sunday Greeters

Help make our church family and guests feel welcome on Sunday mornings by greeting others at the service you normally attend. 

Welcome Desk

Have you ever been in a strange location and weren’t sure where to go?  Help our guests feel at ease on Sunday mornings by directing them to where they need to go.

Live Streaming Team

This isn’t nearly as hard as it looks.  Help us spread the gospel through operating cameras or helping direct the live-stream process.

Coffee & Donuts Team

Who doesn’t want coffee and donuts at church?  To serve on this team, you don’t have to wake up as early as you might think . . . well, that might be a stretch.  Help have our coffee and donuts ready to go by 9:30am on Sundays.

Mowing Crew

Did you know that we mow our own grass? Join one of our mowing teams and build relationships while driving some really cool mowers.

SPCS Serving Team

Our pre-K through 5th graders would love to have you volunteer as a tutor in language arts or science.

Mary Bryan Elementary Serving Team

The community around our church should thrive as a result of our presence.  There are a variety of ways to serve our nearest public elementary school, including: tutoring kids in reading, providing the teachers with an occasional breakfast, or helping with the annual back to school night.

Homebound Serve Team

Help those who need an extra hand, such as giving rides to doctor appointments, meeting practical needs, or offering a listening ear.

GO Groups

Go groups are intentional groups of people who commit to serve together with a particular partner ministry for a 9-month period.  Group members will get together monthly for a time of fellowship and prayer, but the primary objective of the group is serving together at one of Southport Pres’ ministry partners. Learn more about our Go Groups below

What is a Group of Three?

Want to be in an intergenerational small group of men or women who are going a little bit deeper in discipleship?  Get together as a group of 3 (or 4 if you insist) to work through Greg Ogden’s Discipleship Essentials.  At the end of the session, pass it on to others by inviting some new people to join you in a new Group of Three.
A church, not far from us, started out with 3 Groups of Three in 2008 . . . by 2019, their groups had multiplied to over 150 Groups of Three.  What might God want to do at Southport Pres?  To get in a Group of Three, either grab two other people and get started or sign up below and we’ll pair you with some others.
