Ministry Opportunities

Are you looking for ways to serve the Lord?  This is a list of "entry-level" ministry opportunities at WBC.  If you find one that interests you, call the church office (713-723-6428) and they can put you in touch with the contact people listed.

  • McNamara Elementary: Weekly volunteers needed at McNamara Elementary,
    the local elementary school we've adopted
    .  Help with Good News Club each week.  Mentor students, help out in the office, serve as a teacher's aide, or assist in other
    ways according to your interests and skill set.  Volunteers must pass a criminal background check.  Talk to Hope McNeil.

  • Braes Interfaith Ministries: Westbury partners with several other area churches
    to supply local residents with food and clothing.  Work in the vegetable garden.  Volunteers from WBC work at Braes' headquarters (located at Willow Meadows
    Baptist Church) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  See Kristy Davidson.

  • Church Nursery: We need volunteers to care for kids age three and under during our worship service.  You could join a rotation and serve four times a year.  All volunteers must pass a criminal background check. Talk to Hope McNeil.

  • Greeters or Ushers: Join the greeter or the usher teams. Greet visitors to Sunday School (greeters) or to worship (ushers), hand out worship guides, help people feel
    more comfortable in worship services, and offer other logistical support as needed. 
    Speak to Kyle Damron, Paul Moore or Tina Bailey.

  • Sanctuary Choir:  Join the choir. Our adult choir rehearses on Wednesday nights
    at 7:00 in the choir room.  The choir leads in worship on Sunday mornings throughout the year.  See Kyle Damron.

  • Sound Booth: Help out in the sound booth.  See Keith Haggott or Dave Messersmith.

  • His Helpers Home Repair: Help repair homes.  They help our older adults,
    single adults, and widows with small household repairs as well as large jobs. 
    See one of our deacons.

  • Branch/Youth Mentor:  Serve as a chaperone on youth events. Be an "adult presence" at youth fellowships, camps, Bible studies and other events.  See Sam Waltemeyer.

  • Substitute Bible Teacher: Be a substitute Bible teacher.  Let your department
    know that you are willing to fill in whenever a teacher needs to miss a class.

  • Basketball League: Coach in our youth basketball league.  The league, for boys and girls 3rd-6th grade, plays in January and February.  See Randy Mitchell.

  • Homebound: Visit homebound members.  Pack goody baskets and take to
    homebound members, along with Sunday School books.  Find out what their
    needs are.  Just listen to them.  See Gail Grace.

  • Flowers: Work with leftover flowers.  On Monday mornings, make small flower arrangements from Sunday's worship arrangement.  Take to people in hospitals,
    at home, in nursing homes.  See Sarah Stubbs.

  • New Homeowners: Assemble New Homeowner Bags.  During the week, put together the new homeowner bags that are taken on Sundays to deliver to the new homeowners in our neighborhood.  See Ruth Escamilla or Randy Mitchell.

    to do minor repairs and/or construction around the church.  See Max Tidmore
