Second to the grace and favor of God, Family Life volunteers make this ministry happen.  The people who give freely of their time and energy put the backbone in ministry work.  We couldn't do what we do without them.  Their faces light up other faces.  Their hands bring an evening to life.  Their mouths help minister in the hallways.  And their hearts collectively form the heart of Family Life.

Here's what our volunteers have to say about serving:

There are plenty of places and mountains of ways to volunteer.  Fundraisers, dinner events, theater performances, youth events, concerts and more.  It's all part of the fun and extraordinary experience of serving Christ.  The upcoming events are below, so take a look.  The best thing to do is pray about where and how you could personally fill a need.  Thank you!

April 3 - 6: Spring Sharathon

Family Life's headquarters in Bath will be buzzing with activity for this four-day fundraising event and we need your help! Volunteers come from all over our listening area to be a part of Sharathon. They find out how exciting it is to watch first hand as the Lord provides for His ministry. And you can be a part of it too!


Phone operators are blessed to take calls from listeners and hear first hand about how God's ministry is impacting lives. For these volunteers, mandatory training starts one hour prior to your first phone shift.  Phone operators need to be adults who have good telephone skills, a warm, friendly manner, clear speech, sharp hearing ability, and a working knowledge of Family Life. Phone shifts are generally 3 or 4 hours long.

To volunteer as a phone operator, click here.

Kitchen volunteers are always blessed to prepare and serve other volunteers, Family Life staff and those who come to visit the Sharathon. They need to be at least 16 years old. No experience is necessary, just a servant's heart.

To volunteer in the kitchen, email Debbie Fero.

Kids Carnival volunteers get to watch the faces of children as they play games and enjoy the fun activities provided. Both adults and teens (at least 16 years old) are invited to volunteer in this area on Saturday.

To volunteer for the Kids Carnival, click here.

5K Volunteers will be needed to help with car parking, traffic control and to cheer the runners on.

To volunteer to help with the 5K race, email Lydia Sweatt.

April 12 & 13: Choral Extravaganza

Family Life's Choral Extravaganza, we will need table setters (on Friday), kitchen volunteers from 5 to 9 pm on Saturday along with ticket takers, ushers and car parkers for this event that will be held at Family Life in Bath.

Something new beginning July 1, 2018 - All volunteers who help at events will need to sign a Confidentiality Agreement. All volunteers who help in the kitchen or with table setting, will need to sign the Confidentiality Agreement and a Kitchen Volunteer Questionnaire. These signed forms will be filed and kept here at Family Life for the fiscal year July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019. Then we will need updated forms each year.

You can get these forms below, read them, sign and date them (after July 1) and mail them to Family Life. Then you'll be good to go for a whole year! If you want to wait until you volunteer for your first event after July 1, we'll send you the forms or have them here for you to sign when you arrive to volunteer.

If you have any questions about either form or this new procedure, be sure to email Debbie Fero.
