You may also assist with the sorting and distribution of food on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month. Please arrive at church by 9:30 a.m. If you have any questions or would like to help please contact Judy James.
The Mowing Team
Help maintain the church and school property. Mowing crews consist of 4 people assigned one week to mow and trim the area immediately around the facility about every 5-6 weeks. If interested in helping or for more information, email Craig Goldhammer here.
Contemporary Worship Singers and Musicians
The bands for our contemporary worship services are made up of instrumentalists and singers with various experience levels, and we are always looking to add more musicians. For more information, email our Worship Director, Kyle Borcherding, here.
In order to maintain excellence and consistency during our worship services, we need volunteer support. We are always looking for new Duty Elders, Ushers, Lay Readers, Musicians, A/V support, and Building Maintenance personnel. For more information, email our Worship Director, Kyle Borcherding, here.
