We Need You!

Right now some of us have less time than we've ever had. Our hands are full with kids and schooling at home. Others of us have more time on our hands than we have ever had. Some of us are finding sheltering in place to be a refreshing sabbath. Others are struggling to make it through each day.

As we have tried to figure out what ministry looks like in a pandemic the one thing we are convinced of is that our eyes need to be focused outward more now than ever before. So whatever your current situation, you may want to consider how you can volunteer to reach out and help someone else connect with God and other people through our church ministries.

As part of our effort to move into our new reality we are re-launching church online. This is the first step of getting us back into the church building for worship. We have a team working hard to put together a safe and detailed plan to make that happen but even when we return to the building many will want to stay home and worship so we are creating a platform for old friends and new who we know will not be comfortable in the church building.

The days of not having an online presence are gone and we will continue to move all our ministries online even as we also move back into the building. This means we have retooled how you can be in ministry to other people.

Below are a list of ways you can volunteer at church right now. They are categorized by four big areas: Care Ministries, Video Ministries, Event Production, Community Outreach. Under each category they are listed in ascending order based on the time commitment.

You will notice that many of them are aspirational…things we see a need for but currently do not have someone to head up a team. Please prayerfully consider moving into a position of leadership if you think you might have the skills and/or desire to learn and lead in that area. One of the opportunities we have in a crisis time like this is to try things we never thought of doing before. Perhaps this is your Esther moment and you are here precisely for such a time as this.

You can contact the leader directly, or you can reach out to our secretary and she will pass on your contact information. Care for yourself, and help care for someone else by volunteering through church.

We are blessed to be a blessing,
Pastor Ron
