Serving Opportunities

Administration

Those involved with the Administration department serve our church body with clerical help and cooking prep.

Sign Up

We occasionally have need for clerical help, such as folding letters, stuffing envelopes, and applying labels. 

For certain meetings, funerals, and other events, we need desserts or side dishes to serve. If you enjoy baking, cooking, or serving at events, we would love your help.

We also have needs for individuals to cook and/or deliver meals to members of the church who are shut-ins, have recently had surgery, or are celebrating the addition of a baby into their lives.  A meal goes a long way to bring comfort and love during recovery and maternity leave.
