Hospitality ~ Every Sunday we offer refreshments in the gathering space after service. We’re looking for people willing to prepare the coffee/donuts tables, and setup the atmosphere for this time of fellowship.

Information Center  ~ Every Sunday, the information center staff  provides directions and  information about the various activities and  ministries of the church.
