Current Opportunities

PROJECTION VOLUNTEERS NEEDED IN BOTH SERVICES
It’s such a blessing that we  have the capability of projecting words to our music and videos appropriate to the sermon onto a screen in the Sanctuary.  To be up and running in the Sanctuary by August, we need one volunteer to learn how to put the information0 into computer and 4 volunteers to run the projection one Sunday per month.  There will be a very capable instructor to teach needed skills, so please consider offering your time and talents for this area of ministry. We also desperately need one person to put information into the computer for the early service in the FLC and more people to volunteer to run the projection.  Please contact the office or Margareth as soon as possible so we can arrange training.
 
BLESSING BOX IN NEED OF SUPPLIES 
Our church now has a “Blessing Box” outside the building.  We are filling it with non-perishable items that can be used by those in need.  Please donate food and dry good items (clothes, blankets, etc.)  for this outreach service supporting those in need in our community.
 
SHARE YOUR BULLETINS
Summer is here.  If you visit another church during your travels, please bring Miss Jacqueline a bulletin so she can see what other churches are doing.
