Suggested items: Gloves, socks, small soaps, shampoo, deodorant, razors, chapstick, feminine products, wet wipes, bandages, nail clippers, single serving meats (tuna) and snacks (like raisins, granola bars, trail mix, nuts and crackers).

Volunteers needed for Outdoor Worship: When we worshiped indoors, we had up to 6 people helping with the service each week. (Greeter-Passing out bulletins; Ushers; Sound; acolyte; altar committee; pastor assistant). For our outdoor service we need help with the following:
1. Ushers x2: Pass out bulletins, communion packs and taking attendance for those who drive-in & in grassy area.
2. Parking assistants x2 (needed to direct parking of cars)
3. Sound and Recording x2 (to set up & tear down, and recordings during the service)
Please contact Beth Lackey (via email or text) to sign up to help. This help is needed every week, beginning with next Sunday, Oct 18 or we will have to return to online Worship only.
