Opportunities to Help at Church
do you have musical talents? do you care about sharing your love and faith with the next generation? do you enjoy reaching out to others in welcome and friendship? do you have experience with building care and maintenance? do you pray for others every day? do you have a compassionate heart for those who are hurting? do you prefer to work behind the scenes? do you have a heart for extending the mission of our church?
There are many opportunities to get involved in the life and ministry of our congregation. And we like to help people find a place where they can best use their gifts of time and talent to support the ministries of the church. Here are a few of the ways you can be of help:
