Serving in His Name

At Bonhomme, we are blessed with a wealth of brothers and sisters who serve our church in countless ways, making it the church home we know today. One of the first things new members of Bonhomme complete is an inventory of spiritual gifts. Using their gifts, members serve our church. How can you serve? What are your gifts?

Serve through Teaching

Do you have a gift for working with young children, older students, or even teaching adults? Our Children's Ministry is always in need of adults to shepherd and guide little ones in their journey of knowing Jesus. The Bonhomme Student Ministry seeks mentors for growing students in their faith. Throughout the year, Bonhomme offers Spiritual Formation classes and Small Group studies (Growth Groups.) Perhaps you feel called to lead. Regardless, let us help you utilize your spiritual gifts to serve.

Serve through Greeting

Imagine walking through the doors of a new church for the first time? A friendly, smiling face and a welcoming handshake or hug can mean the world to someone who is unsure and awkwardly navigating his or her way through the doors of a new environment. Even for our current Bonhomme members, walking into Bonhomme and being greeted by a friendly face begins the awesome experience of worship.
 
Greeters are needed in both Contemporary and Traditional Worship.

Serve through Praise

Do you have a musical gift? One of our favorite ways to give praise and prayer to Jesus is through music. Bonhomme has a variety of ways to share your spiritual gift of music! The Bonhomme Chancel Choir and Bonhomme Ringers frequently give praise during Traditional Worship. And, our children's music program runs strong with choirs for a variety of ages, as well as a handbell group. In addition, Praise Team members fill Steffen Hall with contemporary Christmas music each Sunday during our Contemporary Worship service.

Serve through Production

Behind-the-scenes work is mandatory--and very much appreciated--here at Bonhomme. During worship, sound and light can creating lasting effects on how people experience Jesus. It is important to be present, but also to hear and see clearly to fully engage in a worship service. Do you have a technical gift for sound and light support?

Serve through Worship Leading

Bonhomme is excited to welcome on board a new Director of Contemporary Worship who will lead our worship and praise on Sundays. However, sometimes, we are in need of substitute worship leaders. If you or anyone you know feels called to lead worship at Bonhomme, we'd love to hear from you.

Urgent Needs at Bonhomme

Community Care Ministry Seeks Drivers 

Imagine wanting to attend worship on Sunday morning, to see your friends, to listen to a sermon about Jesus and his love for you... and then not being able to drive to get there. The Community Care team is starting a ministry to help members of our congregation who need a ride to church on a regular basis. Contact Cathy Lasater for more information if you are interested in helping or are in need of ongoing transportation.
 

Green Thumbs Needed!

At Bonhomme, certain parts of our beautiful campus are carefully maintained by dedicated volunteers. That is true for many of the "common" landscaped areas around the parking lots and buildings. The Buildings & Grounds team is in critical need of an individual or individuals who would like to serve.
 

The raised bed in the playground needs a caretaker who is a little athletic and careful where feet are placed. Easiest access is via an adjacent bench. Main need is for occasional weeding. Bed contains tall arborvitae, variegated boxwood, Prunella, very small boxwood, Plumbago, Stokesia, Sea Holly, variegated Liriope, a few bulbs surfacing in summer, and a few crocus in corners along with Blue-eyed Grass 'Lucerne' ...all easy care really; and bed has been treated with a pre-emergent. A turtle, frog with umbrella, and sleeping puppy show up in the summer, as well. We need to avoid maintenance

times when children are in the playground; so best times for weeding are before 9 a.m. and after 3 p.m. weekdays and anytime on Saturdays or Sunday afternoons.
 
If you would like to lend your green thumb, please contact Joan Kilby 314-469-3164 or John Green 314-808-5101.

Serving Others Through Mission and Church Planting.

Growing disciples of Jesus Christ. That's what resonates through everything we do here at Bonhomme. But growing disciples of Jesus isn't contained within the walls of our West County church campus. We strive to multiply and gather new disciples of Jesus everyday. To learn more about how Bonhomme serves beyond our walls, visit our Missions and Church Planting pages below.
