Candlewood Church

Get Involved

Candlewood Church Omaha is a growing group of people trying to get closer to God and are excited about helping others get closer to God. We strive to love God and others, build strong families, provide a place where people can reach their full potential, and genuinely care for the needs of our communities.

Leading Starts with Serving

“Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else” (Mark 9:35). Jesus calls you to serve God and other people with joy. God created you with unique abilities to make a difference. It’s impossible to do everything and be everything to everyone, but you can serve others with your God-given gifts to help others and His kingdom.

Serving the Church

Serving teams are imperative. From serving coffee to making disciples in Candlewood Kids, each volunteer is needed and valued. Whether you have one hour per month or 20 hours per week, we have opportunities that match your spiritual gifts, unique abilities, and talents. Whatever your gifting, there is a place for you on a Candlewood Church serving team.
