Volunteers Needed For Various Jobs

   Dear church family, Thank you for the many ways that you volunteer your time so generously in serving in the different ministries in our church. You are making a noticeable difference and we appreciate you very much. We desire to be good stewards of the building and property that the Lord has blessed us with, and a need has come for some volunteers to help with sheetrock and mudding repair. If you are able to help, please see one of the trustees. Thank you for serving the Lord so faithfully.
   We are also in need of volunteers who are proficient with computers. If that is you and you are able and willing to help in such areas as the media room, graphic design, preparing worship scripts, and power point, (just to name a few) please see Pastor Bill.
Rightnow Media

   Our church is always looking for ways to serve you as you live out your faith throughout the week. We do have a free account you are invited to use to access the video library called RightNow Media. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. And you can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector.
   If you would like to view over 2,000 videos from some great teachers, please email for further instructions.
   If you find these to be helpful, you can designate to help cover the cost.
