Serve At ZPC

Many opportunities are available to serve within the walls of ZPC.


Bereavement Team

This team provides support to individuals who have lost a loved one. Team members host memorial services at ZPC by serving as on site greeters, coordinating food and refreshments, and assisting the family and funeral directors as needed. We personally contact the family to offer condolences and prayer and ask what needs the family may have for a snack or meal during the calling and memorial service. We offer support and reassurance of God’s constant love during difficult times.

Worship Arts

The worship needs at ZPC are quite dynamic. Commitment level varies as need arises. Presently, we have ongoing needs in the following areas. Please contact Becky Woods if you are interested in serving. You may also look at more detailed descriptions of these opportunities here.

Instrumental Music

If you play an instrument, this might be the place for you! Please consider sharing a talent, learn more about the role of instrumental music in worship, and in so doing share in the blessing of being part of a team.

Choral Music

The ZPC Choir rehearses every Wednesday from 7-8:30 pm beginning in August and ending in May and performs most Sundays at the 9 am service. The choir also performs at special events throughout the year. A passion for singing is desirable, and the ability to read music is helpful, but not a necessity. 

Small Group Vocals

We have ongoing needs for vocalists who desire to sing as part of small vocal ensembles for worship.

Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Team helps our worship spaces reflect God's creativity. Volunteers can bring artistic skills (painting, drawing, sewing), building skills (construction, power tools), craft skills (cutting, stapling, hot glue guns, sponging, painting), or just a desire to help and learn.

Technical Arts

The projection technician operates MAC-based ProPresenter (PP) software, advancing the projected PP slides for worship services and other special events. The sound technician controls the Sanctuary sound levels during worship services and other special events. No previous experience is required, but familiarity with sound mixing and MAC ProPresenter is helpful. 

Drama Team

Currently we are in the process of developing a Drama Team that can meet regularly in effort to develop dramatic skills, and on occasion, prepare skits for use in our worship services and other special events. 

Usher Team

Usher Teams serve and connect with people attending our worship services. 

Sanctuary Prep Team

Currently we are in the process of developing a team that can meet weekly to prepare the Sanctuary for our worship services and other special events.

Interfaith Hospitality Network

ZPC serves homeless children and their caregivers by being part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), a local network of faith-based congregations that provides overnight shelter for homeless families. The program is run by Family Promise of Greater Indianapolis.

Several times a year ZPC hosts up to fourteen homeless individuals. During the day, guests go to work or to the Family Promise Day Center in downtown Indianapolis, where they receive social services. Older children attend school. Between 5 pm and 6 am, guests return to ZPC, where we provide lodging, meals, and hospitality.

Here are just some of the ways you can help:
> Setting up guest bedrooms in the church
> Cooking and serving meals
> Playing with the children and helping them with homework
> Staying overnight with the families
> Driving guests in the Family Promise van to and from the day center
> Tearing down guest bedrooms
> Doing laundry
> Donating food items and supplies or making a financial donation
> Being a prayer warrior; sign up online to pray daily for our guests
> Most importantly, demonstrating Christ’s love

This is a volunteer opportunity for all ages. Please consider serving as an individual or with your family, friends, or Home Group.
