EVENTS PLANNING TEAM

After taking the Spiritual Gifts survey, maybe you discovered you have the gift of helps or hospitality. This is a great area in which you could serve our church – and we need you! If you feel God prompting you to help in this area, please contact the office.


MEALS MINISTRY

Here are a few words from Kami P., our Meals Ministry coordinator:

Love to cook? Love to help others in need? If so, we need you! The Meals Ministry is looking to add members to its team of meal providers. When a need (birth, surgery, death of a loved one, etc…) arises a notification goes out to our team and if you are able to help out, great!! If that date doesn’t work, there will always be others that arise throughout the year. Jump in whenever it works for you to serve! It may be once a year or 10 times a year, it is your choice. We simply encourage you to consider joining this team as a way to serve in our church and community!! It is truly heartwarming to deliver a meal to someone who needs it and see their smile of appreciation!! If you would like to join this team or would like more information about this ministry, please contact Kami P.


Looking to connect with other women? Keep an eye out for some events being planned by our Event Planning Team. If you have ideas or would like to be a part of this, contact Gwen P., Barb S. or Kim S.
