Top 10 Serving Opportunities for Winter 2020

    1. Foster the habit of prayer in our little ones!
      Prayer Egg Volunteer| as available
      Every year during the Lenten season, our children pray for one another. Each Sunday of Lent, they receive an egg with a slip inside containing the Lord’s Prayer and the names of other children to pray for during that week. We would love volunteers to stuff the eggs with the prayer slips. Contact Paige Patterson ([email protected]).
    2. Take worship outside our walls.
      Camera Operator | Contemporary Worship | Sundays at 8:45 a.m. | as available
      Our Livestream ministry carries the message of Jesus’ love to a wider audience.  Bring worship to people who are at home, on vacation, or just dipping their toes into church life as we launch livestreaming in our Contemporary service!
