Being Served and Serving Others 

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 in our church community and beyond our walls, visit our Community Care, Missions and Church Planting pages below.

 
 

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. For the full schedule of choirs and rehearsal times, click HERE.

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.

The Stewardship Team Needs YOU!

The Stewardship Committee met this evening and are going to launch the volunteer recruiting phase of this year’s Stewardship Campaign. We are hoping to recruit 100 to 150 covenant partners to work on six different committees. You can sign up after services in Kilby Commons.

Help us Mow

Have a lawnmower in your garage that doesn’t get used? Our mission partner, Restore St. Louis, mows lawns free of charge for widows and senior citizens in the community. Each season their mowers are used to mow lawns approximately 500 times. They need used lawn mowers. If you would like to donate a used mower, please contact Andrew Stern at 314-280-4397 or andrew@ncfstl.org.

RiverTree Sprouts Wish List

Support our church plant by purchasing and/or donating new or gently used items for the RiverTree Children’s Ministry (called Sprouts). Check out the tree in Kilby Commons or the window display in Steffen Hall Lobby for wish list tags.
 
Please bring the items to the UNITE Worship on September 9

Our Meal Ministry can Help

Did you know that Bonhomme has a Meal Ministry? Currently there are almost 50 homemade meals in the church freezer. Please help us deliver them to covenant partners or regular visitors who might need some home-cooked LOVE.
 
If you’d like to take a meal to someone, it’s easy! The meals are located on the middle row of the walk-in freezer in the kitchen next to Steffen Hall. Simply take a meal (or 2 if it’s for a bigger family) AND LOG your activity on the clipboard hanging on the left wall outside of the refrigerator doors. Please fill out the log completely so we can keep track of how many we are blessing.
If you have any questions, contact Lisa Hartshorn. >Email

Urgent Need for Landscaping Help

In the past have you enjoyed the island in front of the Commons entrance? Or have you or your children enjoyed the raised bed in the children’s playground?
 
We have had a dedicated volunteer taking care of each of these two areas. However, each has moved to be closer to family members leaving us with two new, huge holes in our Volunteer Landscape Program. Spring is around the corner and our most pressing current need is for volunteers to keep these particular areas tidy (weed-free). Please consider helping Bonhomme in one of these spaces or even in one of our smaller available sections. For more information call Joan Kilby 314-469-3164 or John Green 314-808-5101.
