Current Needs for Volunteers
Media Ministries. We are looking for enthusiastic, technically savvy people to be camera operators, sound engineers, run slides on screens, directors, producers, graphics designers, video recorders, editors, and live streaming chat room hosts! We have many great opportunities opening up in Media Ministries! Don’t miss this chance to be at the forefront of something great! Contact Heather DeShazo at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the church office at 405-721-4141.
Share Your Faith with Some Awesome Kids! Servant Kids, 3 years through 5th grade, would love for you to join them on Sunday mornings to share your faith and be a witness to them. We have several opportunities to do just this, beginning in mid-May. Do you have 3-6 hours a month to make a difference in a child’s life – a difference that makes an impact for a lifetime? Contact Cathy Hersom at email@example.com or 728-4715. The email or phone call is not a life commitment, but it can change a child’s life forever.
VBS 2018. We are gearing up for VBS 2018 occurring from June 4-7, 9:30am-12:15pm. The theme is SHIPWRECKED where kids will be anchored in the truth that Jesus is with them, even through life’s roughest storms. As with every year, the success of this program rests on our wonderful volunteers! We hope you will join us as a volunteer this year. We have crew leader, teacher and snack help positions available. If you are unsure about which role might be right for you, please let me know and we’ll find the perfect spot for your talents. We are happy to have your child grades 6-8 (as of Fall 2018) volunteer as long as they volunteer with a parent or an adult “sponsor.” We think that VBS is a great way to start these kids volunteering, but find the best success with middle school students when they are with a parent. Thank you for your understanding of that policy. Volunteer registration can be found here. The link for child registration will be available in late April. Nursery will be available for children of volunteers. Nursery children can be registered on the regular child registration, just choose NURSERY for the grade level. I hope you will be able to serve this summer. It’s going to be an awesome week! Should you have questions, call or text Martha Stone, VBS Director, at 405-822-7484.
