Volunteer Opportunities & Help Wanted
- Helen Porter Healthcare & Rehab Center and Project Independence Ministries - Come and be a part of these monthly ministries with our neighbors at Helen Porter and Elderly Services. We will sing, pray and share in communion. Members and friends from both congregations are welcome. Contact Pastor Elisabeth.
- Children in the Church - All God's children worshipping together, whether sixty or six, is a blessed happening. As more and more youngsters and young people participate in worship, let's be sure that we welcome them by name (tags can help), ask about their activities in church school and church, share hymnals and bulletins, invite them to sit with you once in a while. Rejoice in our shared fellowship.
- If you or someone you know is unable to attend worship services at the church and would like to receive communion at home, in the hospital, or at the nursing home, leave a message with your contact information for the pastor at 388-2510.
- If you or someone you know would be able to attend worship services and other events at the church if transportation was provided, contact Pastor Elisabeth
- If you are able to offer a ride to someone, contact Pastor Elisabeth
- Address Change? - Please check the address on your "Our Light" newsletter, and if it is not your “legal” mailing address please let the church office know, to avoid the church being charged by the post office for address corrections. Please call 388-2510 with any changes. We also welcome changes to your telephone number or email addresses. Thanks.
What do rituals, guest books and buttons have in common? They help us to know each other better!
Why bother? - after all we’ve been coming to church regularly and we know everyone’s name.
How do the names in the white tablet at the end of the pews help us? They remind us of folks coming to church every week or for the first time who are sitting in the same row with us.
When do we use this information? To contact new persons, to realize that someone’s not been in church recently and might be ill, to update change addresses, etc., and to let Rev. Jill know if she can be of help to people.
And how about the buttons? It’s easier to talk with each other when we can call someone by name (someone might be new or we just might forget another person’s name).
Rituals bind us together! Whether singing, praying, listening to God’s word, offering our gifts, greeting one another – these are the ties that bind. How blest they are!
So wear your button! Sign the book! Be part of the ritual of friendship!
