We still have lot of bags – please pick up a few to carry with you,
and give them as you see someone who might need one!
Plastic Bags Needed!
We are looking for plastic bags! We are going to be making pillows for our friends at Open Air. We need plastic grocery type bags to fill them. Please bring your bags by the church office or leave them in the bins in the Narthex and we'll see that they get to the right people. Stay tuned for how you can help make the bags!
Technical Volunteers Needed
You may not realize it, but a lot of work goes on behind the scenes each week to make worship happen! We are looking for volunteers who can offer at least one Sunday morning each week to help with the technical aspects of worship, including:
• Running the audio board
• Overseeing the slides for worship songs, responses, etc
• Panning and focusing the camera as necessary
• Helping oversee and troubleshoot the worship streaming to YouTube
No special skills or experience are necessary - we'll teach you everything
you need to know! We'd like to start a rotation schedule in
August that will help us know how to plan for Sundays.
Disaster Recovery and Response
Disaster Response and Recovery - Are you interested in being part of our congregation's assistance in responding and recovering from disasters? Here are two opportunities:
• We are developing a partnership with the community of Rolling Fork, MS as they are still in recovery from recent tornadoes. We'd like to take a trip there this fall to help - no specific date yet, we can set dates depending on our schedules.
• We are also recruiting members who are interested in general response to an event - whether something happens on our campus, or in the community. This can include physical help with cleanup, working at shelters, distribution and/or feeding stations, or offering general assistance to those affected. Many different trainings are available depending on your interest!
