Communication Committee

We are looking for people who would like to help expand our church's visibility throughout the community. There are two basic skills needed and one doesn't have to have both of them. The first is familiarity with the web and how to post information on a website blog or event page. The second is basic writing ability. However much time you have available-we would welcome your help!

All we need from you is one service on one Sunday per month: come 15 minutes early and stay 15 minutes after the service to clean up. This volunteer opportunity comes with on-the-job training by your crew’s head usher and usher captain so there are no meetings to attend! Women, youth, men, and families are welcome.
