Sunday Setup Ministry

Mission Statement

The Sunday Setup Ministry Team assists in the magnification and the multiplication of the gospel through Seattle to the ends of the earth by preparing a physical space in which the body of Christ and spiritual seekers can gather to worship the Almighty God corporately.


Ministry Vision

Just as Christ displayed servant leadership, the Sunday Setup Ministry Team seeks to selflessly serve the community by preparing a space where they can encounter and worship God from the moment they walk into the building to the moment they leave, with as few physical distractions and hindrances from the setting as possible.


Ministry Responsibilities

1. Pre-gathering Set Up

Volunteers arrive 2 hours before the gathering begins to help prepare the sanctuary, stage, lobby, outdoor space and Kids Ministry for worship by unloading the storage units and setting up the physical spaces in a way that optimizes opportunities for those who gather to hear and see the gospel with minimal physical distraction from the setting.

2. Post-gathering Break Down

After the gathering concludes, team members will help break down the set up, return The Hallows Church's equipment, decor and materials to the storage closets, and then ensure that the rented space's decor and furniture is returned to its initial setup.

3. Prayer

Preparing the space for worship certainly includes physical components but also includes an opportunity to pray with others beforehand for the gathering and those who will participate. Team members are invited and encouraged to participate in preparing for the gathering in this capacity as well. Corporate prayer begins when set-up is complete, normally 30-45 minutes before the gathering's start time.


Cycles of Service

This would be a quarterly commitment and run October - December; January - March; April - June; July - September.

The frequency of service depends on each member's preference and availability. It would be an honor to have you serve every Sunday but we realize that may be unrealistic. The hope, therefore, is to have a large enough rotation to allow team members to only be needed to serve once a month unless he/she desired to serve in this capacity with greater frequency.

Key Verses

Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.” For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.”

When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.
— John 13:1-17
On one of those days, as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was with him to heal. And behold, some men were bringing on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they were seeking to bring him in and lay him before Jesus, but finding no way to bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” And the scribes and the Pharisees began to question, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” When Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the man who was paralyzed—“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.” And immediately he rose up before them and picked up what he had been lying on and went home, glorifying God. And amazement seized them all, and they glorified God and were filled with awe, saying, “We have seen extraordinary things today.”
— Luke 5:17-26
