LEARN MORE ABOUT VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Over the next few weeks, we will be having short informational meetings between worship services where we will talk about different volunteer opportunities we have. We will explain about what each volunteer role’s duties are. Next week, October 9th we will talk about serving communion and ushering. No obligation to sign up if you attend, just come for the info. 9:30 in the narthex.
LOOKING FOR DONATIONS
We need a few large area rugs to put in our Sunday School rooms to help cut down on noise. Let us know if you have something you would like to donate.
Children’s Christmas Program will be held Sunday, December 18th during the 10:30 worship service. Looking for volunteers to help with: music, staging costume/props and more. Please talk to Dawn Eberhart if interested in helping.
SUBSTITUTE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS
We need a few more people that are willing to serve as a substitute teacher for Sunday School. We have an easy-to-use curriculum and provide all the supplies. Talk to Tracy Stuewe or Kate Meyer if you are able to help.
We have a list of jobs that need to be done around the church. Some examples: changing lightbulbs, assembling things etc. Check out the list on the whiteboard in the volunteer room to see if there is something you can help with. This is not a committee or ongoing commitment, just what works for you at that time. Talk to Tracy if you have any questions.
