Servant Opportunities…

Share your talents in a variety of ways in which you can be of service.  Maybe you have a talent in reading, or in offering prayers, in singing, in ushering, or in setting up for communion. Maybe it’s a new way to help that we haven’t thought of. If you would love to help and to serve in any way during this most unusual time, just let Karen or Pastor know or just write your name on the signup sheeet in the narthex.

Together we do Christ’s work with our hands.
