Connections Ministry Opportunities

Have you noticed scenes in movies and TV shows, when they’re trying to show someone feeling isolated and alone, the scene will frequently be of the person walking down a crowded city street.  Lots of people, lots of activity, but this person seems to almost be in a bubble, unconnected.  We’ve all experienced it, none of us enjoy it.

Connections Ministry volunteers are people who can make sure our busy Floris hallways don’t leave people in bubbles.  Please consider if you can use your gifts and talents in any of the areas listed below.  You may be the connecting point people look for!

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please select the check box next to the description and enter your contact information at the bottom of this page.

If you have any questions, please contact Patrice Welker.
