Children's Ministry - Children's ministries at Burt Avenue are divided into two areas: Nursery and BAWC Alley. The nursery cares for children from birth to Pre-K, while BAWC Alley reaches children Kindergarten through 5th grade. We also have three Sunday School classes for children, Pre-K & K, 1st-3rd Grades and 4th-6th Grades. Contact Cindy Carroll(burtavenue@hotmail.com) to get involved with our Children's Sunday School Ministry, BAWC Alley or our nursery.

Youth MinistryThe Burt Avenue Youth Group provides a safe place for students in grades 7-12. Students meet on a weekly basis to worship, celebrate successes, share concerns, and learn from God's Word. Contact Cindy Carroll (burtavenue@hotmail.com) to get involved. 

Community Outreach - Burt Avenue Wesleyan Church is actively looking for ways to serve others in our community and around the world.   Periodically, special community outreach events are designed to care for people and just make connections with our community, with no strings attached. To help with our community outreach, contact Cindy Carroll (markcarroll@sbcglobal.net). 

Worship Ministry - The messages of our culture most commonly present themselves in the form of music and visual media. The worship team, praise band, and sound booth technicians at Burt Avenue focus on using various talents to provide musical and visual enhancement for the Sunday worship celebrations. These teams gather every Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. and the first and third Sundays at 5:00 p.m. to build one another up and to strengthen their skills as they prepare for celebrations. Contact JoAnn Uhlig(JoAnnUhlig@hotmail.com) for more information. 

Hospitality/Fellowship Hall Team - Hospitality teams help to create a caring atmosphere by connecting with people through the preparation and serving of food during our Sunday celebrations and special events. Contact Kathy Reigle(burtavenue@hotmail.com) to get involved. 

Connect Team - The Connect Team is responsible for ensuring that guests are greeted and offered assistance. Connect Team members serve during one or more of our celebration services and at special events. If you are interested in helping new people to feel welcome, contact Mark Appis(burtavenue@hotmail.com) to get involved. 

Guest Services- Guest Services includes various ministry opportunities (e.g. greeters, ushers, etc.) that help ensure that every person entering the church feels important and welcome, and that they are greeted and offered assistance as needed. These ministry opportunities include personally welcoming people, helping them with any needs they may have and just helping them feel welcome. If you are interested in getting involved with this ministry, contact Mark Appis(burtavenue@hotmail.com).

Buildings and Grounds - The Buildings and Grounds Ministry is a service opportunity involving individuals who desire to help with hands-on building projects, landscaping, vehicle maintenance, safety and security procedures, or with setup and tear-down of special events. This ministry is vital especially for those who like to work behind the scenes with hands-on involvement and short-term projects. Contact Dale Arnold (burtavenue@hotmail.com) for more information.  

Finance Team - The Finance and Offering Team helps with the counting of offerings and the development of the church budget and financial policies. Contact Mark Carroll (markcarroll@sbcglobal.net)
 for more information. 

Office and Administration Team - The office team provides office support in various areas such as phone calling, mailing and various administrative jobs. Contact Tammy McClain(tlmcclain@sbcglobal.net) for more information. 

Small Groups - Small groups are 6-12 (or more) people that commit to meet regularly for varying purposes. Groups may be designed to focus on spiritual development, outreach, or a special need. Some groups are designed for a long-term commitment while other groups are developed on a short-term commitment, but all groups are committed to "doing life together" and encouraging each other in spiritual transformation. Leaders, teachers, and hosts are needed for many of these groups.  For more information, contact Cindy Carroll (markcarroll@sbcglobal.net).
