Current Volunteer Opportunities

As a community of faith, Incarnation has claimed service as one of our core values: Service to others in the name of Jesus is our response to his life-giving ministry. We are each uniquely gifted for ministry and seek opportunities to share ourselves, our resources, our faith, and the love of Christ with variety of people. 

Current Opportunities at Incarnation

Vacation Bible School Volunteers

This year for Vacation Bible School we are expecting over 200 kids at Incarnation, where they will discover how Jesus rescues them through life’s storms. Incarnation needs many volunteers to help with all these wonderful kids. If you have young children who need nursery care while you are volunteering at Vacation Bible School, please contact Rebecca Christiansen. Click the link to see what volunteers that are available.

Worship Team Members

Worship Teams are made up of greeters, information center hosts, ushers, communion servers, and worship assistants. This is an easy but important way to serve. Volunteer opportunities available during all worship services, especially 10:05 a.m. Contact Becky Benson to learn more or volunteer.

Communion Prep Team

Pour wine and juice into chalices on communion Sundays and place the filled baptismal font and Pascal candle on baptismal Sundays. If you can assist, contact Amy Martell.

Worship Arts

The Worship Arts team uses visual arts to enhance and celebrate worship at Incarnation. They are looking for people who would be willing to help. Being part of this group is fun and flexible. Having a creative flair is helpful, but not necessary.

Sound and Video Board Operators

Incarnation is in need of more Sound and Video Board Operators to help during all worship services. Training will be provided to help operators feel confident in their roles. For more information contact Nick Wellen at nwellen@incarnationmn.org.

Quilting

quilters

Quilting is a great way to get involved if you like to work with your hands and you enjoy the camaraderie of other women. No experience is necessary. There are a variety of tasks and responsibilities to be shared. Volunteers are needed to assemble and tie quilts as well as cutting, sorting, and counting quilt squares. Quilts are distributed to LifeHaven as a gift to the moms who complete the program. Each year more than 100 quilts are given to Global Health Ministries for distribution to ELCA Mission hospitals throughout the world. Other recipients include Bible camps, mission visitors, refugees and needy families.
