Mitten Tree Starts November 12 — Volunteers Are Needed

We are looking for volunteers to help at the Mitten Tree tables on Sunday’s and to work sorting, wrapping and delivery of gifts. If you wish to volunteer please sign up here.

SUNDAY MORNING HOSPITALITY TEAMS

Every member of the church has been invited to participate in one of 13 Teams, each team taking 4 Sundays a year to perform the roles of greeting, ushering, food prep and clean up, AV. These larger areas are broken up to many small tasks that are easy, fun for all members of the family and take 20-30 minutes (mostly).  If you don’t know what team you are on, contact Rev. Eileen Wiviott at [email protected]. If you aren’t on a team but want to join one, we will gladly add you!

Here is a link to a document that includes a blank sign up sheet that leaders can use and detailed instructions of all the roles. – Hospitality Team Job Descriptions

Be sure to find your team’s hospitality date. Add your name to as many spots as you can fill. Contact Rev. Eileen if you have any trouble.

It is a great way to learn some helpful and hospitable practices.

OUR GIVING HOUSE COLLECTION 

Our Giving House provides a place to collect monthly food and clothing donations for Connections for the Homeless. We ask for specific items that are in great need at Connections’ Entry Point and Hilda’s Place Shelter. Donations are matched by covenant groups, families, and good hearted individuals. Look for the house shaped box in the lobby and little signs of the house around the building to see what is planned for collection each month. If you would like to sponsor a month, please send a note to Johna Van Dyke ([email protected]).
