Serve at Chelten

Volunteer with a team and learn about other outreach opportunities.

Saved people serve people. At Chelten, we have the opportunity to develop and use the gifts God has given us to meet the needs of others. From helping out with Kidz Korner to running the sound board during a worship service, there are plenty of opportunities for people with all sorts of skills, personalities, and availability to plug in at Chelten.

Cook to Share

Twice each month a cooking team gathers in the church kitchen to prepare delicious meals for our senior adults, families in need, those experiencing long-term illness or anyone who could be blessed by a home-cooked meal.

Food Pantry

Our food pantry, Seeds of Hope, joyfully provides nourishment for hundreds of families each week. We celebrate and value the opportunity to encourage each individual by seeking to build a friendship and lend a helping hand.
