One of the greatest ways you can help serve at the Barn is through our cleaning ministry. Our cleaning is done completely through the service of volunteers. It is important that our church is welcoming to guests, so we greatly appreciate those who feel led to lend a helping hand. The cleaning crew meets on Saturday mornings from 8:00-9:30 a.m. for coffee, fellowship, prayer, and cleaning.
The Usher Ministry serves in two important ways. First, the ushers assist those attending Calvary Chapel Blue Island. Ushers greet everyone with a smile and can help with finding seating, directing people to where they need to go, or offering a word of prayer when needed. Secondly, the ushers provide a type of security for the entire church, from the parking lot to the sanctuary to every other place in the building. We want everyone attending our church to know they can always find an usher nearby prepared to assist.
Greeters help those who come through the doors of the church feel at home. Their responsibility is to help all who enter the doors of the church feel joy, sincerity, importance, peace, and comfort. Helping everyone feel welcome is so important to our church.
At Calvary Chapel Blue Island, our time of worship is important to our ministry of the Word. Through song and prayer, we align our hearts with God and enter into His presence, where we can best receive what His Spirit will reveal to us through the Bible lesson. Our services feature contemporary praise and worship music, as well as some more traditional hymns and songs. Worship time consists of both prayer and music, and the focus is solely on Jesus Christ.
The mission of the Audio/Visual Ministry is to maintain and operate the sound, video, and recording equipment for all worship services and activities in the sanctuary. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible in assisting the worship team and pastor by providing quality sound and video support. We desire to spread the word of God by creating quality worship and sermon media, including CDs, podcasts, and Internet-accessible archives of all sermons and special events. | email@example.com

It is our desire for our Children's Ministry to support parents in bringing their children to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The Youth Ministry (7th-12th Grade) teaches discipleship at this important part of a young person's life.
