What does it mean to “serve” at Macedonia? In serving our neighbors and each other we reflect the love of Christ we feel in our own lives. Serving in this manner is not a duty or obligation, but a joyous exercising of our faith!

Interested in sharing your gifts and abilities? There are as many ways to serve at Macedonia as there are spiritual gifts among our members. Please see below for information on identifying your gifts as well as descriptions for some of the areas in which you can serve:

Spiritual Gifts Assessment

The Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment helps individuals identify their God-given gifts for living faithfully as Christian disciples day by day, and find meaningful ways to use your gifts in connection with others through the community of faith. The process can help you understand the nature of spiritual gifts and ways to enhance the effectiveness of your gifts by linking together with others.

Building and Grounds Workers

Macedonia’s Trustees are always looking for people to help out with building and grounds maintenance. If you have a talent in this area, please contact the church office ( or 919-851-1551) and someone will direct you to the Trustee responsible for this area.


Enjoy working in an office? Volunteers can assist our Church secretary from time to time with some of the administrative tasks, such as assembling bulletins for the coming week or for special services during Lent and Advent. If you are interested in helping in this capacity please contact Deb Wolford in the church office ( or 919 851-1551).

Visitation Team

Want to share God’s love outside the walls of Macedonia? The visitation team does just that! Many of our church members are unable to attend worship regularly on Sunday mornings. We rely on a team of caring, loving volunteers to visit these members and bring the Macedonia spirit with them. These members may be grieving, suffering from illness or injury, aging, homebound or living in nursing homes and other care facilities. Our dedicated teams help sustain loving relationships and church family connections .If you’re interested in joining this critical discipleship ministry, please contact Betty Obremski ( or Betty Jo Dickinson (


Interested in being an Usher or Greeter? Ushers and Greeters are usually the first people you see when you arrive at Macedonia. They pass out bulletins and welcome everyone when they arrive. Ushers also pass out the offertory plates during the service. If you are interested in being an Usher or a Greeter, please contact Bruce Harvey (
