WANNA SERVE IN STUDENT MINISTRY?

 

OPPURTUNITIES TO SERVE

 

Shepherd Team

         This is a team of adult volunteers who serve as small group leaders who consistently invest in the students’ lives through teaching, modeling, and encouraging.

 

Hospitality Team

We have a student snack shop on Wednesday Nights that Adults can work at. It helps us promote fellowship and community to our students by speaking to their hearts (more like stomachs). All proceeds from this snack shop go to provide Scholarships for Students to go on Missions.

 

Check-In Clerks

            These volunteers allow us as a student ministry team to stay connected with the students, guests and members alike, on a weekly basis by being the keepers of attendees and making first impressions.  Great smile required. 

 

General Wednesday Night Volunteer

Come and hang out on Wednesday Nights to help us keep our students safe. While you throw around a frisbee or football, you can help us be a presence in the parking lot to keep students safe.

 

Sound/Video Techs

         These “techies” will devote their time and talents in the areas of lights, sound, and video on Wednesday Nights and other special events.

Greetings!

 

I hope this newsletter finds you doing amazing.  I realize that Summer is one of the craziest times of the year for you and your family with vacations, baseball, soccer, softball, etc., figuring out childcare, working, etc.  The craziness is no less for Student Ministry – but we are going to have some great times of fellowship, service, and worship this summer!  Please read this Newsletter carefully so you know our Summer Calendar!

 

Below you will find a general Schedule for Summer – then below that will be some Event Highlights!   

 

Sincerely,
Wade Bryant
