Worship Ministry Opportunities
Ushering ~ Greeting ~ Lectoring
ALL ARE WELCOME to join us between services in July to learn more about how the various roles of worship assistants can help create a welcoming environment for those worshiping with us.
We are encouraging everyone who is interested in these ministries to come out and see what is involved. If you are currently assisting in one of these – come out too – there are some things that have changed. The “training sessions” will be held between the services (9:30-9:50) in July. They will be repeated in August.
Families are welcome and encouraged to come!
