Be a part of the Team!

We each have our own set of skills, talents, abilities, and interests, and we believe that everyone has something to offer! Serving at church is one of the finest ways to get more out of it and to be reminded to love others as Christ loves us. As a member of the team, you will meet new people, develop new skills, and make a difference in the lives of others.

Vernon Alliance has various volunteer opportunities and we need your assistance. Not sure where to start? Take a peek at the teams below! Please complete the Volunteer Application at the bottom of the page and we will contact you!

Home Groups

Home Groups are places where we learn to trust one another with our imperfections and become open and honest as we do life together. The fruit of this kind of risk: being part of a life-giving community that helps us become more like Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. There are groups for men, women, young adults, seniors, and everything in between.
