Use Your Gifts in Our Community

To create a healthy congregational dynamic it's essential to weave together a wide multiplicity of gifts.  Both paid staff and volunteers come together to shape the array of programs and experiences that shape our vibrant community life.  Below you will find a list of tasks and projects that might provide you an opportunity to lean in and help shape our church life together.   For questions on the items below or to discuss other ways to link in, contact one of our volunteer coordinators, Joan Stevenson or Bev Tracewell.

Concerts Reception Coordinator

We are delighted to present 5 musical concerts each year. Each concert is followed by a lovely reception designed to encourage conversation and socializing among our own congregation and with the visitors to our church community. We currently have a coordinator for these events and have a detailed written set of directions for whoever would love to take on the coordination of one or more of these concert receptions. This periodic service to the church life is so appreciated by all who attend the concerts. 

Concert dates are:

2016 2017
November 6 January 29
December 11  May 7

 

Administrative Tasks

The Administrative Manager's work hours have been cut as part of the council's actions to balance the budget. There are many tasks that can be managed by volunteers to free up time to work on the more challenging projects required of this position.  Most of these tasks are weekly or even monthly and if done consistently by one person will enhance the look of our facility and probably save some dollars as well. Check it out below.

   - Kitchen and Coffee Kiosk Supply Management, organizing the supplies in the pantry area to be sure we are fully stocked, bi-weekly

   - Workroom Coordinator, organize and manage equipment and supplies, bi-weekly

   - Copy Person, backup person to operate the Riso machine and the folding machine for periodic projects, as needed

   - Bulletin Board and Event Poster Management, monitor and maintain all onsite bulletin boards and event stands, weekly

   - Managing Parish Register, infrequent task journaling significant events in church life, a handwritten task
