Opportunities to Get Involved 
Hospitality Teams Always Welcome!
Help with beverages and snacks in "Coffee hour" after Sunday services. All food/coffee/snacks etc. is already provided -- you just help organize to put it out and serve. 
Count the Offering.  We need volunteers once a month to help count the offering. Contact the Church Office
Be an Usher  This is a great way to serve your church with minimal investment in time beyond showing up on your designated Sundays to serve. Besides, you're already there anyway, right? Also a great way to meet more folks. Usher teams rotate every five months. Duties include setting up the microphones, posting the hymn numbers on the boards at the front of the sanctuary, passing out programs, collecting the offering (but not counting it) and doing a walk-thru/pick-up after the service. That's it! Please contact the Church office or see an usher in church.

Acolytes Needed Youth 15 and older to light candles during services, etc.  Contact Carolyn Brannon.
Nursery Volunteers Contact the Church Office
