(See also Children’s Ministries and Youth Ministries.)

Basketball & Beyond

Men, the boys and young men in our church need mentors! Basketball & Beyond teaches them not only teamwork and court skills, but also self-respect, respect for others, and the qualities of true manhood. If you are willing to be a leader and an example, serve in this important ministry.


The Soul Food Bookstore is located next to the Welcome Center, across from the worship center. The bookstore is open on Sunday mornings for people who want to buy Christian books, Bibles, CDs of the Sunday services, and other sources of spiritual nourishment.

Chair Teams

Every Saturday, cheerful volunteers set up chairs in the Living Springs gym, transforming it into a Worship Center ready for Sunday mornings. And every Sunday, another team re-stacks those chairs and puts them in storage, so our Preschool students have a place to play during the week. Is this a service you could perform? Join a Chair Team!

Coffee Break Bible Study

This Bible study—especially for women—meets every Wednesday at 9:30am from September through April. Nursery and Story Hour are available for children up to five years old.

Community Groups

Throughout the week and in various locations, members of the Living Springs family are gathering in small groups to study the Bible, pray together, and share life with each other. Contact the church office for more information about what groups are available.

Compassionate Prayer Team

When the Holy Spirit moves during a Sunday worship service, members of the Compassionate Prayer Team are ready to pray for healing, deliverance, and blessing for anyone who comes forward.

Divorce Care

Divorce Care is a nationwide organization with thousands of groups meeting to help people recover from the pain and separation of divorce. The Living Springs Divorce Care group meets in Room 145.


Divorce Care for Kids recognizes that kids need special help understanding divorce and learning to handle the difficult emotions that result. The DC4K group meets in Rooms 210-212 while Divorce Care is meeting in Room 145.

Food Pantry

If you need a bag of groceries and a friendly smile, visit Living Springs’ Open Door Food Pantry, Monday–Friday, between 9:00am and 4:00pm. If you have a bag of groceries that you can donate to the Pantry, drop it off in the grocery cart near the Holy Grounds Coffee House.

Good $ense

The Living Springs deacons want everyone to experience the spiritual, emotional, and relational freedom that are a result of Biblical stewardship. They offer financial classes that train people how to apply Biblical principles, and they provide free, confidential counseling to anyone who needs one-on-one assistance. 

Great Commission Team

Living Springs members are called to “radically bless our community and beyond”—and the “beyond” includes mission work in China, Indonesia, Honduras, Kenya, and more. The Great Commission Team coordinates communications with these missions so that the Living Springs family knows how to partner with them to share God’s good news.


One of the side effects of grief can be a sense of isolation. The GriefShare ministry reaches out to people who have experienced loss and offers them a safe place to express difficult feelings.

Holy Grounds Coffee House

One of the ways Living Springs members make visitors feel welcome is to invite them to stay for coffee and snacks after the worship services. Those refreshments are prepared and presented by a team of smiling volunteers. If you’d like to help out once in a while, let us know!

Infant Nursery

During both worship services, at 9:00am and 10:30am, Living Springs provides nursery care for infants up to 24 months old. (Once they turn 2, they graduate to our Sunday School program.) If you are interested in helping provide a safe and loving place for Living Springs infants, contact Robyn Jackson.

Kitchen Angels

If you’ve been in the hospital or are on bedrest for an extended time, you know how difficult it can be to prepare meals for yourself or your family. The Living Springs team of Kitchen Angels can step in to help!

Landscape Team

Living Springs has been blessed with a beautiful property, and our Landscape Team helps maintain the flowers and shrubs that delight us throughout the seasons.

Lawn Mowing Team

Do you love the roar of the mower and the smell of fresh-cut grass? Join the Lawn Mowing Team! Email Living Springs, and we’ll put you in contact with the right person.

Men’s Ministry

Real men aren’t afraid to study the Bible. In fact, they know it’s a tool that can help them be stronger, more successful, and deeply fulfilled. Each season, we spend time in a new study, with content that speaks specifically to men’s roles and dreams. Join us at the church building Wednesday nights at 6:30pm (except during the summer). There’s food!

Music Ministry

Living Springs’ Music Ministry uses instruments, vocals, dance, and technical arts to lead people into the presence of God each week. Talented, teachable team members are welcome!

P.A.D.S. (Public Action to Deliver Shelter)

P.A.D.S. is a network of faith communities who work together to host homeless people overnight and give them supper, breakfast, and a bag lunch. Living Springs’ P.A.D.S. night is Saturday, from September to May, and volunteers handle check-in, cooking, packing lunches, making breakfast, and clean-up.

Prayer Groups

Jesus called the Temple “a house of prayer,” and Living Springs wants to live up to that name. Not only is prayer an important part of all our leadership meetings, worship services, and Community Groups, but certain prayer groups receive special training and assignments.

  • The Tuesday Morning Prayer Group meets every Tuesday at 6:30am in the prayer room to pray over the prayer cards that have been submitted during the previous Sunday’s service. Everyone is welcome—it’s a great way to start your day!
  • The Compassionate Prayer Team (see description above) meets on the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00–8:00pm in the prayer room. This group also makes themselves available at worship services to offer prayers of healing and deliverance for those who come forward. For more information about joining the team, contact Rich Albrecht.
  • Staff Prayer Meetings are another opportunity to pray over the prayer requests and praises that have been turned in during the previous Sunday’s service.

If you have a prayer request that you would like to make the Living Springs family aware of, notify Jennifer so she can include it on the Prayer Chain. (She will keep the details confidential if you let her know that’s what you want.) If you would like to receive Prayer Chain announcements via email, ask her to add you to the distribution list.

Safety Team

Week after week, most of us take our safety for granted, but members of the Safety Team never do. These volunteers are trained to know what to do in an emergency until paramedics can arrive on the scene.

Video Team

If you understand cameras and audio and computers, and you want to use technology to reach people, the Video Team would love to hear from you! Email Greg St Victor to volunteer or find out what’s involved.

Welcome Team

The Welcome Team is responsible for equipping the Living Springs family to make visitors feel welcome. The team schedules volunteers to greet people at all our entrances every Sunday morning, and they host a special lunch for new members three times a year. If you are interested in greeting or serving or meeting with the Welcome Team, let us know!

Women’s Ministry

Through special events, seminars, retreats, and service projects, members of the Women’s Ministry provide an oasis of God’s love, Christian fellowship, and spiritual growth for women of Living Springs and surrounding communities.
