Greeters - Welcome members and guests as they arrive for worship.

Nursery Helpers - Assist the staff person responsible for the care of our preschool children during Sunday School and the 10:30 AM worship service. See the list of volunteers needed at /content.asp?SID=1335&CID=93072

Message for Young Disciples - Present a "mini sermon" for children during the first part of the 10:30 AM worship service.

Childrens Church - Provides a Christian learning experience for our children while their parents participate in the second half of the 10:30 AM worship service.

Flowers - Enhance the beauty of the sanctuary for each worship service. There are special flowers on Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas. See the yearly schedule of volunteers at /content.asp?SID=1335&CID=93071

Birthday and Anniversary Lists - By maintaining birthday and anniversary lists and publishing them in the Sunday bulletin, members are able to extend their good wishes to others in the church family. If you would like to add or change your dates, please call the church office (735-0343) or email the secretary at

Church Directory - The pictorial directory is updated and published approximately every 3 years, providing members with a handy reference of other members' addresses and phone numbers.

Communion Servers - see list at /content.asp?SID=1335&CID=93074

Special Events - Fellowship suppers, "hanging of the greens" at Christmas and breakfast following Easter sunrise service are some of the special events presented throughout the year.

Directory of Shut-ins and College Students - A list of college students and shut-ins is maintained so that various Sunday School classes and other groups within the church can send cards and greetings during the year.
