Here are some opportunities:

  • Ush­ers — Need a bul­letin, help with a seat, or have a ques­tion? Ush­ers are always avail­able dur­ing ser­vices to help! Be part of the team; ush­er­ing is easy, fun and pro­vides an oppor­tu­nity to meet and greet our parish family.
  • Altar Guild — All ladies in the church are invited to serve on the Alter Guild. Respon­si­bil­i­ties include car­ing for alter linens, prepar­ing alter ves­sels and flower arrange­ments. Will­ing hands are all that are required.
  • Adult Choir — We resolve to “sing with the spirit and sing with the mind” (I Corinthi­ans14:15). Rehearsals are on Thurs­day evenings at 7:30 PM, as well as prior to Sun­day ser­vices. The Choir sings Sun­days from Sep­tem­ber through June.

  • Flower Arranging:  Yes, we do have “real” flowers on our altar on occasion.  Flowers are sometimes given to the honor and glory of God as a memorial or in honor of loved ones.  This is the perfect ministry for someone who enjoys arranging flowers to beautify our sanctuary.
