Serve and Volunteer

Serve and Volunteer

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:10

Our Mission:

Our purpose is to gather together to help enhance our worship services.  When we gather for worship, we are all ministers, assembled to pray, sing, praise, celebrate communion and be sent forth in mission.

We welcome volunteers for each of the following areas of needed support:

Lights the candles before worship (usually as part of the Procession), and extinguishes them at the end of the service.  Also gives and receives the offering plates from the Ushers before and after the offertory.

Hospitality is a celebrated Christian virtue.  The first impression most people have of our Church, and maybe the Christian faith itself, is formed by how they are cared for and welcomed by those they meet. The role of our Hospitality volunteers includes different aspects of set up and break down of the coffee and sweets table, baking goods to share on Sundays, refilling the coffee, and small but significant demonstrations of care for all the Church’s attendees.  Your assistance is based on your schedule and capabilities.
