The Property Committee is looking for people who would be interested in being trained to use the sound systems in the church and the LH. We would like several people who would be capable of working the systems for events and services here at the church.
Staff is beginning to compile updated information to create a new church directory. We are asking all our members to please ELECTRONICALLY submit an individual or family photo that can be used in the directory. Photos can be emailed to Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org, or see Amanda during coffee hour and she will snap a photo of you. You will be receiving a “Reminder” post card in the mail in the upcoming weeks. If you have any questions please feel free to email or call the office!
We are in need of coffee hour hosts and bakers! Like to bake but can’t commit the time to serve? Or do you enjoy serving but not baking? YOU can still volunteer for coffee hour!!! Just indicate what you would like to do on the coffee hour board when you sign up! We will still take any food donations that can be frozen or kept for a period of time for coffee hour as well, just leave them in the CH kitchen and mark them coffee hour.
Stephen Ministers will be available every Sunday after both services to pray individually with you about personal needs and concerns you may have. After the service has ended, if you wish to meet and pray with a Stephen Minister, come to the front of the church by the altar. Your concerns will be kept confidential, and someone will stay and pray with you. Often, when we are struggling to cope with health issues, a recent loss, anxiety about changes in our lives, or loneliness – it helps to have someone beside you to pray the words that are so difficult for you to express, and to ask God for His direction.
Stephen Ministers will be there every Sunday to pray for your particular needs.
If there is something troubling you, please join us at the altar on Sunday after each service.
