“For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.” – 1 Cor. 12:14-20

The members of DRBC all have different gifts that can be used for the one body. Praise God for the diversity of these gifts that are not all “an eye” or “an ear.” Our DRBC Church Covenant reminds us that, “We will cheerfully and regularly contribute to the support of the ministry, the needs of the church, and relief of the poor.” One way to practically live that out is by serving in one or more of the ministry areas in our church. The following is a list of different ministry areas where members can use their gifts to serve the needs of the body and glorify our Creator and Giver of those gifts. We would encourage you to take some time to look over these ministries and contact the Ministry point of contact to start getting involved in that area.

Audio/Visual

The audio/visual ministry is responsible for audio and video operations at DRBC. We work before, during, and after service to meet the music team’s needs, setup other technology requirements for the Sunday gatherings, including recording, processing, and publishing content for the web.

Typical volunteer duties:
» Operate audio/visual equipment during service and other church-wide events (Bible Bootcamps, seminars, etc.)

Children’s Ministry

Children’s ministry at DRBC is an area of great need and great gospel opportunities. DRBC members have almost 300 children 12 and under, and we also welcome many visiting families with children. The children’s ministry of DRBC exists to glorify God by supporting parents in making the whole counsel of Scripture known to children, praying for the children, and modeling faithful Christian discipleship for them. Our church does this primarily by offering God-glorifying, gospel-centered, biblical instruction for children newborn through 6th grade. There are many opportunities to serve both for people experienced in working with children and for those new to children’s ministry. Sunday school teachers serve for one month at a time every other month, and; morning service volunteers serve once a month. All volunteers are screened, trained, and must be DRBC members for six months before serving.

Typical volunteer duties:
» Serving in our children’s ministry either (1) every Sunday for even or odd months during Equipping Hour or (2) one service a month during Main Service
» Teaching, discipling, and protecting the children entrusted to our care

Deacons: Andrew Ferguson, Kayla Ferguson, Tyler Costas, Hannah Costas & Katie Crampton

Community Care

Community Care is a ministry of mercy that reaches out to people in DRBC’s community and beyond who are in crisis or in challenging circumstances and offers help in assessing their needs and working together to find solutions. The deacon and team members pray and focus on deed ministry by extending mercy and compassion. Our purpose is to show God’s love and mercy by trying to help people out of difficult circumstances and to be facilitators of the work God is doing in their lives. Community Care practically assists and encourages regular attenders (not necessarily members) and external individuals or families who are in challenging circumstances in many ways.

Typical volunteer duties:
» Serve as the primary point of contact for ongoing cases of Community Care

Finance

Every week, immediately after the morning service, a group of two to three volunteers meets in the church office to open and count the offerings and other income that the church receives. This serves the church by ensuring the quick deposit and recording of the funds that are donated through the generosity of the members. The entire process typically takes 20-30 minutes depending on how many items there are to count.

Typical volunteer duties:
» Opening envelopes, making notes, and counting contributions
» Preparing bank deposit slips

As well, the team participates in the discussion and planning for the future of facility use. The deacon of facilities also helps to lead, recruit, schedule and oversee the Building Manager program for all events at DRBC, including Sunday service. Our desire is to see the Gospel proclaimed and God glorified every time the body meets at our building. That nothing facilities related would distract or prevent anyone from hearing the Word of God. Overall, our mission is to provide a safe, functional place for the congregation to meet and worship the Lord.
