CALLING ALL SERVANTS
As the ministries, function and events of the church increase we are finding the ever present need to increase our volunteer base.

We need you! Should you desire to serve in one of these ways please sign up at the front desk today indicating the area that you could be most effective and use your gifts. "...from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love." Ephesians 4:16
