It takes quite a lot of people to accomplish all the things that happen over the course of a weekend and four worship gatherings. The list below is just some of the areas that you can volunteer in each weekend.
Nametaggers: Each week, everyone gets a sticky nametag with their name on it. If you can smile and write legibly, you can volunteer here!
Parking Lot Greeters: With four gatherings each weekend, you can imagine that the parking lot is a place in need of coordination. We help people find a parking space and greet them as they come in. If you can point and smile, you're qualified.
Door Greeters: We pass out a bulletin to each person as they enter our worship space and use this as another opportunity to welcome guests and regular attendees.
Refreshments: Like most large groups of people, we drink lots coffee and eat treats that people bake. If you have a passion for java and can help keep the fresh pots coming, don't miss this opportunity to serve!
Communion: One of the most important parts of our weekends together is when we celebrate the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, together. Anyone who is interested can help in serving the congregation this special meal.
There are other areas to serve if these don't quite fit your gifts and personality. Sign up and someone will be in contact with you shortly.
At Community of Faith Small Groups are a growing part of our faith journey. Small groups average between six and twelve people, some even more, and typically meet once a week in homes around the community. Small groups can meet for various reasons: studying scripture, fellowship, devotions, prayer, service to community, and more. Some small groups meet for a set period of time, some indefinitely. This is the best way we know to connect with the church, to get to know people on a deeper level, and to have support along the journey of faith. To get involved in a Small Group, email firstname.lastname@example.org
