Usher and Deacon Sign Up

It takes a village, or more specifically two people for the early service and four people for the second service.  What are we talking about?  Ushers.  Add in one liturgist per service and we’re looking for eight volunteers per week to help with the worship service.  Ushers greet members and visitors, collect and count the offering, and direct folks to receive communion.  Liturgists lead the Call to Worship and the Dedication Prayer, and deliver the first scripture reading.  These moments of service are open to all members – there is no requirement that one serve on a church board or be a deacon.  Volunteering as an usher or liturgist is easy via the online SignUp Genius.  You can also send an email to the points of contact listed in the bulletin: John Yoder for ushers and Mark Zaineddin for liturgists.  We look forward to you joining us on a future Sunday.
