Hand out the orders of service at the sanctuary doors beginning at approx. 9:15 a.m., Ask two other people to help the two greeters to take up the offering, and, following the service a quick check is made of the sanctuary to retrieve any belongs which have been left behind

Communion Server

Help serve the communion elements either by intinction or by plate and cup.  Worship chair meets with the servers 10 minutes before the service to go over their roles.

After Worship Snacks

Provide cookies, squares, loafs, etc. on an occasional basis.  Having food following the service tends to improve fellowship and gives people a chance to visit.

After Worship Cleanup

Following the fellowship time after church you will take the cart with the dirty cups and coffee makers, etc. to the kitchen and wash them up.  That's it!

Control the world! (Well, the part that's visible through our live stream anyway.) Set up cameras and mics, and help run the live streamed broadcast.
