Serving at Substance
We believe that one of the ways we can glorify God is by serving others. Here are just a few of the ways you can jump in and serve alongside your brothers and sisters at Substance. Email the team leader with any questions you might have about getting involved!
The Hospitality Team creates environments to make people feel welcome from the moment they walk in the door. We want to pursue people in the same way Christ pursues us, serving one another in love and humility. Practically speaking, that means we greet people with a smile, host brunch in the café after Sunday services, and open up our space for special events to welcome and serve the community of Ashland.

Substance Kids exists to proclaim the Gospel to kids so their hearts and minds can be transformed, renewed and shaped by Christ. Because we believe kids can grasp Gospel concepts at an early age, we view what we do on Sunday mornings as evangelism, not simply childcare. We use a curriculum called The Gospel Project for Kids, and have serving opportunities for age groups including 0-2, 3-5, and 6-12.

Music & Sound Team
The Music & Sound Team leads our community in praising God through song together on Sunday mornings, and helps people understand why he deserves our worship. Serving on this team might be a good fit for you if you already play an instrument or sing, or if you have experience or a desire to learn how to run a sound board. Playing and singing from stage requires a (low-pressure) audition.

The Facilities Team is dedicated to the upkeep and improvement of our current ministry locations. Serving on this team might mean helping with a building project, cleaning the church during the week, helping people find seats before a service, or straightening up the café after brunch on Sunday. So if you like to build, clean and make things happen behind the scenes, contact us to get involved!
