Volunteer Opportunities

Task-Oriented Volunteer Opportunities are the kinds of pitching-in-to-get-the-work-done jobs for which you can sign up once or as many times as you like, without committing to long-term membership or leadership on an ongoing committee or council. Instead, you can simply lend a hand with specific administrative chores, or at various kinds of special events or activities (often during Sunday coffee hours)…which is a great way to get involved, meet new friends and find a niche in our congregation.


Care Net Services

Help other church members with short-term personal needs:   rescue them if their car breaks down, drive them to a doctor's appointment, or send cards if they're ill or in the hospital.  Provide casseroles when someone is ill, or when there is a family crisis or a family is in transition.
