Volunteer Teams

Without volunteers, Harbor would look very different. As a small church, almost every ministry we have is run by a volunteer. From our kids and student ministries, our musicians, to the people putting out the flags and greeting you on Sunday- it takes a small army of volunteers to make Harbor of Hope function!

We believe that every single person has gifts and abilities that are helpful for the church. If Harbor is your church home- God has a role for you to play here!
