Our Wednesday evening activities and worship continues to grow and we need your help in a couple of areas.

1) Serving Supper.

Those who help serve, usually show up about 4:45 to help serve and then stay until about 6:15 to help clean up.

We need about 5 people to help serve supper every Wednesday evening.

There are a few simple steps for you to consider when volunteering:

Express Your Interest: Contact the ministry leader of the ministry in which you are interested in serving for more information.  Each ministry has different parameters and requirements for serving.

Meet & Greet: Take an opportunity to meet the volunteer team and observe the in’s and out’s of the ministry.

Start Serving: Use your passions and skills to connect with God and with others!

We desire to become a serving church answering God’s call to serve by connecting our unique gifts and passions to His mission, resulting in Christ-centered growth that is celebrated in community!

You can make a significant difference in the lives of others. You have a purpose. Start the journey of discovering it!

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2
