Special Event Volunteers
Children's Ministries hosts several special events during the year, such as Family Fun Nights, Family Advent Projects, Trunk-or-Treat and more. We would love for you to come share your gifts with us on a one-time event basis. Contact Renee Williams to learn when our next special event is scheduled.
Volunteers On Call
Can we call on you to help with our many office and craft preparation projects? This team of volunteers work when their schedules allow to do copying, cutting, cleaning/stocking supplies, sorting, painting, and more. Our Volunteers On Call are sent emails with project requests and then reply if they can help on a specific task. Some projects are done at the church and some can be taken home. Contact Renee Williams to learn more and sign up.
In Children's Ministries, we always have a need for people with special project skills. If you have skills in photography, sewing, art/painting, theater stage set construction or design, or assembly presentations, please contact us! There are many opportunities for you to use your skills to grow God's Kingdom.
