Volunteers Needed for Youth Events

Are you into jewelry making, scrapbooking, calligraphy, carving, mechanical, easy projects with saws/hammers, game-playing - indoor (cards, chess, board games) and outdoor (flag football, Kub, Frisbee golf), acting, dance, yoga, cooking? Chances are there is a Family of Christ kid who is too and would love to learn from you!! Join us for one of our special youth events! If you have questions or want to share your hobbies/passions/talents/faith stories with our youth, please let Andie know. 

 

Can Collection

Did you know that Family of Christ collects cans in the parking lot? Because of your donations, nearly $450 goes to summer youth trips each year. Thank you for sharing your recyclables.

 

Shared Ministry Vounteers

HELP!!! We could use a lot more hands volunteering in our Shared Ministry group! We have a wonderful, dedicated bunch of volunteers currently working very hard to make everyone’s weekly worship experience enjoyable. Please consider helping in this area whether it be serving coffee (hospitality), communion, picking up and delivering the weekly donuts, ushering or stepping up to be an Assisting Minister! If you’re interested or have questions, contact Kim Schaeferle, our Connections Coordinator.

 

Know Someone Who Could Benefit from a Prayer Shawl?

The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes prayer shawls for anyone in need of some warmth and comfort, or anyone having a difficult time in their lives.  Please let Melanie Wegner know if you have an idea of someone who could use a prayer shawl.  She would be happy to wrap one up and deliver it.

 

Want to Help Make the Prayer Shawls?

In the cold, dark nights of winter, would you like to learn how to knit or crochet? It is very comforting and satisfying to pray and serve others by making prayer shawls for people. We would love to teach you.  If you already know how or would like to learn how to crochet or knit, and would like to join us making prayer shawls, please contact Melanie Wegner or join us on Fridays at 11:15am in the church youth room.  Newcomers are always welcome!

 

Congregational Care

Do you love to cook? We are looking to add to our list of meal donors for families who are going through trying times. When we hear of a family that could use a meal or two, I will send out an email to the whole list, if the date works well for you, you would just respond that you’re available and I would send you their contact information.  You don’t need to commit to a certain number of meals per year; it’s very much an “if it works for you” kind of volunteer spot but one that is very much appreciated by the recipients! Contact Kim if you’re interested in helping out! Thank you!
