Serving at Emmaus
At Emmaus, we deeply value our identity as being a family that demonstrates inward and outward love in our city and within our own community. We see serving in the local church as a way of belonging to that family. We also recognize that God is a giver of many good gifts so our opportunities try to reflect that reality as much as possible! Take a look at the chances to serve our family below and fill out the form at the bottom to jump in to serving on one of these teams!
If you have a passion for passing on the truths of the Gospel to the next generation, then this is the team for you! From teaching on Sundays, volunteering at events, or holding babies during the Gathering, we have something for you!
This is a team that aims to display the beauty of the Gospel by leading our family to worship our beautiful lead worshipper, Jesus. Whether you are a musician, artist, designer, tech whiz, or media guru, there is a place to serve and use your gifts to help our church engage with God in worship. Whether that is through singing on a Sunday, mixing audio, or making resources for Spiritual Formation attractive, there is a place for you!
Our Sunday Gatherings could never happen without the help of faithful volunteers. The Gathering Team is the driving force of our hospitality on Sundays. We are always looking for friendly faces to help serve in this capacity, whether it is by setting up chairs, greeting people at the door, or delivering announcements and the Scripture reading.
We truly believe there is value in gathering in person to be in fellowship with the family. We desire this for everyone at Emmaus so we have a Transportation Team to help those who cannot get to the Sunday Gathering. If you are available to give rides to others without their own transportation to Gatherings and other Emmaus events there is an opportunity here to, as Amos says, "love mercy".
Serving our City
Because we value inward and outward love at Emmaus, we are always looking for opportunities to see the gospel of Jesus on display in our city by serving the needs of those around us. Sometimes that looks like intentional relationships in our everyday lives and through missional living in our Gospel Communities. It also looks like our Gospel Communities partnering with local ministries and organizations that are doing the work of mercy and justice alongside the church in Denver. Here are a few ministries we partner with currently through our GC's.
In their words, "Project 1.27 is a place where deep faith and a huge vision come together to fulfill the Christian's responsibility to care for kids in foster care." Our South Cap Hill GC is partnering with this organization to support a family in our church pursuing foster care.
To learn more about Project 1.27 and for ways you can get involved you can visit their website here.
Bridge of Hope is a ministry dedicated to ending homelessness all across the country. They work specifically with those who are most at risk, specifically single mothers and their children. Currently our University GC is partnering with Bridge of Hope to aid them in their mission.

Emmaus partners with Denver Counseling & Coaching as a provider of sound, gospel focused counsel. In their words, "Denver Counseling & Coaching is a practice that works alongside individuals and couples, helping them to gain a biblical worldview amidst intense trouble and opportunity. Each counselor and coach's desire is to direct clients toward lasting change, purpose, and true fulfillment."
