SPECIAL THANKS to Lisa Roman, who has been serving in our baby nursery for one year as her graduation service project. Serving weekly alongside our paid staff, she has been faithfully caring for our youngest children. She has completed her hours, so we are now in need of a weekly volunteer to serve with Ann Lash. Please stop by the nursery to sign up for a week soon!

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE AN ACOLYTE?  Students entering 4th, 5th, and 6th grades are invited to join our Acolyte Team.  This is a very special way to serve and contribute by bringing the “light” into worship on Sunday morning and then carrying it out after worship, symbolizing the light of Christ going out into the world.  If interested, contact Jane Beam. Training and instruction will be provided in early fall for interested students.



DO YOU LOVE TO COOK? The high school youth group has dinner as part of our twice monthly gatherings. Volunteers are invited to sign up to bring dinner for about 8 high school students and leaders on 2nd and 4th Mondays. We’d love to have lots of different folks involved with our group. Cooks would be invited to eat and hang out with us, even share some of your story if you’d like. Please talk to Amy Lisk or contact the church office if you’d like to provide a meal.
