It takes a lot of volunteers to make ministry happen! 
Check out various opportunities to serve below.

Serving Opportunities
at Cornerstone

Whatever your strengths or passions, there are many ways you can align your interests with serving opportunities. 

We average more than 500 kids at our Sunday services, so we need a lot of qualified volunteers to serve as classroom leaders & helpers! There are various opportunities to serve with kids from infants all the way up to high school. 

Visitors to our church can be intimidated by the size and amount of people here on a Sunday morning. Helpful volunteers greet people as they walk in, help them find a seat in the auditorium, and give directions if needed!

Help greet members and new visitors by serving them a hot cup of coffee and friendly conversation on Sunday mornings. 

We want to ensure a secure environment for our visitors and children to learn and grow.

By serving in production or the worship band, you can help facilitate worship gatherings at Cornerstone. We desire to lead clear and compelling gatherings, and whether you are on stage or behind the scenes, we’d love to have you apply and audition for a position.

The Cornerstone Church Communications Team exists to serve our church and its ministries through thoughtful and excellent creative content. Through design, photography, and video we want to communicate the unique stories of people in and of the collective church, ultimately pointing to the glory of Jesus. 

Serving Opportunities
in the Community

As members of the Ames community, we want to be servants to the people and systems that make up our city. 

In our city, there are thousands of internationals from all over the world who study at Iowa State University. Join our conversation partners program and you will be connected with an international student that you can meet up with 1-on-1. This is a great way to help an international student improve their English, get adjusted to life and culture in the United States, and find community and friendship during their time here.

Home For Awhile seeks to battle homelessness in our community by providing three months of subsidized housing for families while providing support and community. Those who volunteer with us can serve in many different ways from being an Ally, to prayer, to providing welcome baskets, moving support, donations of furniture and other household items or simply giving financially to the mission.

Foundations Learning Center is a non-profit childcare center for families in Story County. Our mission is to provide safe, affordable, and Gospel-centered childcare for the flourishing of families in Story County.

Public educators work daily with one of the most precious items we have–our children. As a church, we want to come alongside our local community schools and support them with our words, our time, our hands, and our resources. Whether by tutoring, mentoring, serving, or donating, our hope is to look like Jesus in our schools.

City Ministries embodies compassion, mercy and justice; we serve in Ames and surrounding areas. We seek to share the gospel and meet needs of the most vulnerable people in our community. Serve in City Ministries to use your gifts through relationships, meeting needs in generosity and with humility.
