Ways to Serve

As a part of the church family, we encourage everyone to join in meeting the needs of others by serving the church. There are tons of areas to serve, from serving people, to physical service, to volunteering with arts or tech.

Requests for Serving

It takes a lot of willing volunteers to make ministry happen and here are a few specific teams currently looking for extra support! Most areas of service require little or no experience or skill, although some of our arts teams require auditions to fill open positions. See all the areas you can serve and fill out the form. Someone will then contact you to get involved!

Start Serving


Being hospitable is part of the DNA at Cottage Grove, so we created a team to embrace and grow that in any way possible.


Few things make others feel more welcome than a smiling face. Jump in with this team to welcome and support the people that make up Cottage Grove Church.


Have a handy side and familiar with a tool now and then? This is a great opportunity to support our church body and historic building by helping out with maintenance and improvements.

Arts & Tech

Put your creative skills and experience to use with this team of talented folks that help us create, capture and record our services, events, and much more!
