Volunteer your Time

We love our volunteers. They help run the church, our fundraisers, serving projects and fun activities. They help decorate at Christmas, tend to our gardens, and host our coffee hours. They also serve on the council, planning committees and keep things organized.

        Use your gifts for God and volunteer.

Each helping hand is an outreach to our members, our community and a service to Christ.  We thank you.

"Every Hand Helps

 Every One Matters."

Serving our church, our neighbors and our community. In doing so we find the joy in the Lord.


When someone asked us the best part of serving, the answer was, "The camaraderie of coming together to accomplish the goal and helping others."
