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.

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 Julie Hettel at jhettel@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 Julie Hettel at jhettel@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 Julie Hettel at jhettel@bvbaptist.com

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. Contact Nancy Merrell if you could help or lead during either service at nmerrell@bvbaptist.com

We have an opening in our 1st and 2nd grade class for a teacher, as well as a helper. We could also use a volunteer helper in our 3rd and 4th grade class. Contact Nancy Merrell to get more information at nmerrell@bvbaptist.com
