Needs within our Congregation
Lend a hand + Meet new people = Richer experience
Volunteering is once a month
A very easy way to get connected is to volunteer with us once a month on a Sunday Service! We would love to have you join one of our awesome teams depending on your interests - Ushers, Greeters, Book Table, or Communion Servers (communion team requires church membership). Go here for additional info or email Phoebe to sign up.
Be the host / hostess of God's house!
11:15am Ushers needed - just once a month!
The first impression of a church is often collected by its volunteers. We need people with a heart to receive all our guests and neighbors Ushering at the 11:15 service especially, although, all services have opportunities. Email Phoebe to sign up.
Seeking night owls and bookworms!
