don’t have to do anything. If you would like to be a part of
this ministry, sign up on the communication form or contact
Vickie Martin ([email protected]).

up pews, and occasionally stuff mailboxes. Volunteers can be
individuals or teams. Contact the church office for details.
Prayer Chains & Announcements

announcements will be delivered primarily through email.
If you currently receive prayer chain items by phone and
we have an email address on file for you, beginning Jan. 2
you will receive prayer chains via email. Those who do not
have email will continue to receive these prayer requests
by phone. Everyone will get church-wide announcements.
If you do not currently receive prayer chains and would like
to, or if you would like to opt out of receiving church-wide
announcements, mark the communication form.
