There is an immediate need for one volunteer to pick up and turn in attendance slips from the attendance pads for the Day by Day Service on the 4th Sunday each month, beginning January 26. 
This is a very easy opportunity to help your church.  All that is required is that you gather the attendance slips and turn them in to the black drop box outside the office entrance. They will be picked up and tallied and visitors noted on Sunday afternoon.  Thank you for volunteering to help and for all who do this every Sunday.

Greeters help welcome our guests and members each Sunday at both worship services!  We see this as an important opportunity to meet visitors and hopefully connect them with our church.  Please sign up for as you are able.
