HELP NEEDED FOR SUNDAY MORNING SETUP AND CLEANUP
If you have a desire to serve, there are areas where we can use your help!
We are building a bigger team of people who will share in the duties of setting up chairs and equipment on Sunday mornings. If you can help once or twice a month in this vital ministry and would like to be added to the rotation, please see Roger Boates.
We also need additional team members to pack up the equipment after the service and return it to storage. This would require less than an hour of fellowship with like-minded individuals immediately following the service. Find out first-hand how it’s done! Please see Jim Leste after the service for more information.
ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE
We also need support for those who serve in the areas of hospitality (aka donuts, coffee and water) and floral arrangements. Stop by the Hospitality Table for more information or see Cindy Hallsted.
