Here are just a few of the Volunteer Positions available:


CHURCH VAN DRIVERS NEEDED


Members of our Church family need your help!  There are a few people who rely on the church van to attend services each Sunday.  Due to a recent retirement, we need at least one new driver to add to our dedicated crew that picks up and drops off our members each week. 

Each driver is asked to drive only one Sunday per month.  The only requirements are that you are between the ages of 25 and 70 (due to insurance regulations), have a valid driver’s license and good driving record.

These are wonderful folks who truly appreciate the efforts our drivers put forth to get them to church each Sunday.  Please consider being a part of this valued ministry. 

If you would like more information or want to volunteer, please contact the church office.  Please call today and help us “get them to the Church on time!” (with apologies to the Broadway musical).


CHURCH OFFICE VOLUNTEER

Are YOU Who We Are Looking For?

 If you would like to help in the church office as a volunteer, YOU might be the person we are looking for.  We are looking for someone who wants to come in and help one day a week.  You might answer phones, do some computer work, and generally help out around the office.  “On-the-job” training is easy and fun.

  • Sometimes we are really busy and other times business is slow.
  • On busy days you don’t have time to check e-mails or play games on the computer or read your good book.  But on slow days you can do all of that.
But whether it is busy or slow we have fun, laugh a lot and sometimes we have goodies to eat.

Sometimes we learn of things that are personal and private.  We honor the confidentiality code.  So if you can keep things to yourself and you aren’t bothered by keeping quiet when necessary, then YOU are the right person and the one we are looking for.

 If you are interested, please call Sherry in the office.


CARING COMMITTEE VISITORS NEEDED

Many of our parishioners are homebound or in nursing homes.  They miss the fellowship of familiar and friendly faces.  The Caring Committee has decided to have teams of two go out to help visit with these friends.

If you would like to be a part of this great Caring Ministries Team, calling on these people, please contact Betty Enoch (714-778-8969).
