The Christian Education Department needs you!
**We need an individual or couple to teach the middle school Sunday School class, which meets from 10:00 to 11:00 am beginning September 13.
**We also need someone to help with one of the youth groups each Sunday night., beginning September 13. The middle school youth group meets from 4:00 to 5:30 pm, and the high school youth group meets from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. You would only need to help with one of the groups, so that means we need two people.
**All of these positions could be filled on a rotational basis so that one person would not need to commit to every Sunday. Please contact the church office if you are interested in helping to nurture our youth as they grow in Christian faith.
Flower Ministry Help Needed - Are you interested in being part of the Flower Ministry? We need you! Please contact Vi DeMeester or the church office.
