Serving at Grace

At the end of each summer we have a time where we invite each of you to prayerfully consider how you might serve at Grace for the following school year.  There are many ways that parishioners can serve in the community, but the following are areas of special need this year.  Will you consider your God-given gifts and how the Lord might be directing you to serve?  For general questions or to discuss how you might best serve, feel free to contact us and a we would be happy to hear your thoughts, visions, and/or questions.


Altar Guild

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in preparing the elements for communion and lighting the candles. The altar guild also washes and puts away communion vessels, cares for the linens, and prepares floral arrangements for Sunday services and special occasions. Contact Annie Murphy for Altar Guild.

Children's Ministry

Do you love children?  Are you looking to share the stories of Jesus with the next generation?  Consider serving in children’s ministry.  We need volunteers who are willing to serve once a month in the nursery and we are also looking for teachers who serve two out of every three weeks.  Contact Jennifer Albertson for Children’s Ministry.

Hospitality

Everyone looks forward to the refreshments before and after services, along with our potlucks and special events.  The hospitality team is who makes all that delicious fun happen!  We are looking for volunteers who desire to serve their fellow parishioners by preparing coffee and tea, setting out snacks, and helping with potlucks and special events.  Contact Tina Thomas for Hospitality.

L.E.M.s (Lay Eucharistic Ministers)

Please consider joining our team of Lay Eucharistic Ministers! We have the privilege of providing very tangible expressions of Christ's presence with us during worship; dispersing the wine, the bread, and carrying the cross. LEMs also read aloud the prayers of the people and Scripture passages. We need you and would love to have you join our team!  Contact Dan VanNess for L.E.M ministry.


Music Ministry

Do you sing or play an instrument?  Are you interested in ministering to the church through music and worship?  We would love to hear about your interest.  Contact Jordan Ware for Music Ministry.

Welcome & Greeter Ministry

Do you enjoy helping others feel welcome and meeting new people?  The Welcome and Greeter Ministry is looking for volunteers who enjoy greeting their fellow parishioners, will handout bulletins, answer questions, and assist the LEMs with the offering basket and directing rows of attendees to Communion.  Contact Joan Dowell for Welcome and Greeter Ministry.

Youth Ministry

This year we have enough youth to split our kids into junior and senior high!  This is a very exciting time.  However, this means that we need your help!  We have a GREAT group of kids that are eager to learn.  We are looking for adults who desire to teach and share the truth and hope of the gospel with the next generation.  Contact Ross Eddy for Youth Ministry.
