Opportunities to Serve

Thank you for checking out ways you can get involved in the various ministries of Bella Vista Baptist Church. Below are opportunities we'd love to connect you with.

We have also listed the people who you should contact to volunteer to fill these roles. Some of these opportunities will always be available, some are going to be on a one-time or seasonal basis. By contacting the person responsible for the ministry below, you are not formally agreeing to anything, so feel free to call and get information about the opportunity without feeling like you've already made a commitment.

Nursery and Preschool Ministry

During our Sunday Services, our preschoolers have a worship service of their own. Would you be willing to lead or help with this? Contact Ashley Abernathy at aabernathy@bvbaptist.com

We have regular workers scheduled for each service. But often, they call and cancel for various reasons. We find ourselves needing people we can ask to come and work in the nursery with little notice. Would you be willing to be put on a list of people we could ask to fill in if a need arises?Contact Ashley Abernathy at aabernathy@bvbaptist.com

We have a need for a Sunday School helper in our class that hosts 4 year olds and Kindergarteners. This is not a lead teacher position, but a helper position.Contact Ashley Abernathy at aabernathy@bvbaptist.com

CARE Ministry

Door Greeters
Would you be willing to greet people as they come in and gather for our Sunday Morning services? Come, smile, and welcome people to Bella Vista Baptist Church as the first face they see on Sunday Morning. Contact the office at 479.855.3748 for more information or to volunteer

Hospitality Room Greeters
As first-time visitors leave, they are asked to stop by the Hospitality Room. Would you be willing to be there to answer questions, get to know them, and make sure we get a record of their visit? Contact the office at 479.855.3748 for more information or to volunteer

Children’s Ministry

We are in need of a few people to take the lead on our Children's Worship service that takes place during our Sunday Morning Services. This includes about a half hour of teaching, crafting, and game time.

We have an opening in our 5th and 6th grade class. It is teaching every other month with a helper. Contact Julie Hettel at jhettel@bvbaptist.com

Building and Grounds

We recently had the roof replaced over most over most of our building. On our last church work day we put in new ceiling tiles and painted several offices. We will have another work day in the coming months to continue renovating and maintaining our facilities. If you would like to volunteer to help there will be a sign-up sheet at the Welcome Center prior to the work day. In addition to quarterly work days, there are constantly projects around the church that could be done.

PAINT TRAILER We currently have a trailer purchased from the Bella Vista Big Band. It is in dire need of a paint job. The church will furnish supplies if you are willing to do the labor of painting it. Contact the church office for details

Operation Christmas Child

It’s never to soon to think about Christmas. We are collecting items to fill shoe boxes OCC. Watch our newsletter and bulletins to see the item of the month, and check the Operation Christmas Child site at www.samaritanspurse.org for more information and other ways to help.

Bella Vista Baptist Church is an Operation Christmas Child drop-off site. OCC’s national collection week is November 18th-25th. Bring your filled boxes and delivery fee to BVBC and they will be taken to collection centers and delivered to children around the world. You can pick up a ‘shopping list’ with ideas for what to pack and empty shoe boxes at the church.

We will also have a church-wide packing party on November 10th, at 5pm in Grace Hall. Come join our church family in spreading the love of Jesus throughout the world.
