How to use a defibrillator (AED)
HOW TO USE A DEFIBRILLATOR (AED)

At Grand Ledge United Methodist Church, we understand the critical importance of knowing how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) in emergency situations. It's a skill that could make a life-saving difference. With our commitment to the safety and well-being of our community, we encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with AED operation. To support this, we've provided a helpful instructional video demonstrating the proper usage of an AED.

Let's equip ourselves with this knowledge, empowering each member to potentially save a life in an emergency.

Communion Stewards
COMMUNION STEWARDS

The Worship Committee is looking for a volunteer to serve as Communion Steward.

We are looking for one or more persons to serve as Communion Stewards. Below is a description of what it involves:

Job Description:
Communion Stewards obtain and prepare the bread and juice for the congregation to participate in Holy Communion. Stewards prepare the altar, as needed before communion services. In addition to setting up for communion, stewards also clean up after communion is served at the 9:30 a.m. service. They may also be asked to assist the pastor in serving communion as needed depending upon the style of the service.

The communion steward will also prepare the communion boxes that morning for the Compassion Care Team to use to serve communion to our shut-ins.

Time Commitment:
Sundays, 8:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. [first Sunday of each month]
Preparation time prior to the actual service time. Attend training sessions if offered and Worship meetings when available.

Contact Pastor Ron if you are interested.
