Current Volunteer Needs
Sunday Morning Ushers
We are in need of additional individuals to serve as ushers at each of our Sunday morning worship services. Ushers work as part of an usher team, and they serve for one-month rotations roughly once a quarter. If you are willing to serve on an usher team, or are interested in learning more, please contact Bob Kohari, usher coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Training is provided.
Church Office Weekday Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to serve at the front desk in the church office on weekdays. Duties include welcoming people, answering phones, sorting mail and other daily tasks as needed. If you are interested in serving the church by volunteering on a regular basis at the reception desk (3 1/2 hour slots) please contact Pam Winkeler at email@example.com.
CUMC Lawn Crew
Volunteers from the church help maintain the lawn and cut the grass. This allows the church to direct yard maintenance funding to other church needs. Each volunteer is assigned to a team which meets about one Saturday morning a month for about 2 hours. We are now arranging teams for the 2018 season. We would like to increase the number of members on each team or possibly increase the number of teams. If you are interested in joining a team or filling in as a substitute, please contact Russ Luehrsen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each Sunday, the offering is counted by a dedicated team of offering tellers. There is currently a need for persons who are willing to serve once a month on an offering teller team. Counting starts after the conclusion of the 9:30 AM service and lasts until between 12:00 and 12:30 PM. There are openings on the Fourth Sunday and Fifth Sunday teams. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Anne Muradaz at email@example.com.
Nursery and Sunday School Substitutes
Help children form the foundations of their faith by volunteering in the nursery or teaching Sunday school on a substitute basis. No experience necessary, only the desire to share the message of God’s love. Contact Diane Beatley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday Greeters & Welcome Center Hosts
We need Sunday Morning Volunteers to serve as greeters or to host the Welcome Center for the 11:00 AM service to welcome people and help direct them where to go. If you would like to join our Sunday team or need information about these ministries, please contact Pam Winkeler at email@example.com.
Altar Flower Deliveries
Did you know that many weeks the altar flowers are delivered to a sick or homebound member of the church after worship? We are seeking volunteers to deliver the altar flowers after the 11:00 AM service to sick or homebound members. Share God’s love with someone! Join our flower delivery team. For information or to sign up, please contact Pam Winkeler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ESL Hospitality Team
We are seeking a few volunteers (or teams of two) to set out ESL snacks on Tuesday mornings once or twice a month. This is a simple way to “welcome the stranger” in our midst, as the scriptures call us to do. Join us in spreading joy while meeting some wonderful people from all over the world. We have approximately 100 students in our morning classes from every continent. For many this may be the first Christian church they have ever entered. Contact Linda Blake at email@example.com to help us make our students feel like honored guests and welcomed friends!
