Due to some family transitions, high school students graduating, health issues and people moving away, we need to fill some roles in our normal Sunday morning worship ministries. Most of these jobs don’t require any preparation and no extra time commitments…you just show up to church like you always do (maybe a few minutes early) and you help fulfill a necessary role in our worship gathering. Just about anyone can do any of the jobs. We’ll make sure you are properly trained and feel comfortable before we throw you out there. If you try it once and don’t like it, you don’t have to do it again. But if you or your family would like to try one (or more) of these out, please mark the tear-off and we’ll be in touch for a short training session. You do not need to be an official member of the church to help out…we’ll take anyone who is interested. Here are some opportunities to serve that we could use some more volunteers for.
You can also submit your interest here: Activities
Power Point Operator: Be able to operate the Power Point program during the service. Training is available (it mostly involves paying attention and pushing a button…pretty simple, really). This is particularly needed at the Late Service.
Communion Assistant: Helps distribute communion during Sunday morning service.
Counter: These folks stick around after the late service and spend about 30 minutes counting the Offering money and recording it.
ALSO NEEDED, BUT THE NEED ISN’T AS URGENT:
Worship Leader: This person assists the Pastor with the service, stands with them at the front of the church, assists in communion, reads the prayers of the church, and other items that are in the bulletin as prepared by the Pastor.
Prepare Communion: This requires that the person set up communion (wine and bread are provided), place it on the altar, and clean up afterwards. This is done on a rotating schedule so that no one person is responsible for every Sunday. Others will take over if you cannot make it on a Sunday you are scheduled, just call and let them know.
Reader: This individual reads scripture from the pulpit on a scheduled basis. Normally the person will have a good reading voice and be able to use inflection while reading. Readings for the following weeks are found in the bulletin and mailed to the assigned reader each week.
Greeter: One or two persons stand in the narthex by the door and greet everyone who enters. If the people are visitors, make a special effort to find someone who can talk with them and answer any questions about the worship service.
Power Point Creator: Be able to create Power Point programs as needed. This is done during the week (at your leisure) and usually takes about 30-45 minutes/week.
Usher: Come to church about 20 minutes early to hand out bulletins, and assist visitors and members in finding seats. They also collect the offering, and bring the elements of communion up to the altar. After the late service, the usher is responsible to make sure there are no bulletins or trash left in the church.
Choir: Be willing to practice weekly (typically on Sunday mornings during the Sunday school hour) and partake in the late service every week from September through May. You can take off when needed, but choir director does like to know. A basic knowledge of music is helpful, but not required.
