WEEKDAY VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
We currently have volunteer opportunities on weekdays at the church – and you could be a gift to our community if you’re available!
First, we’re looking for people to help with our financial processes on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings. In 60-90 minutes, you’ll help count and record offerings while ensuring proper handling of gifts. This work is imperative, but it also doesn’t require a background in finance or accounting – just the ability to focus on details for an hour and a willingness to serve once or twice a month.
A second opportunity would be to serve as regular office support. This would mean serving for a few hours one day a week (as your availability allows) to help answer doors, phones, and simple questions about the church, while also being involved with small projects in the office.
If any of these roles would be of interest to you and you want to learn more – or if you’d like to find a different way to serve on weekdays – will you reach out to Charlene Parkinson today at [email protected]?
We are excited to resume our annual medical, dental, and optical caravan this year as we continue our 34-year partnership with Tochimizolco, Puebla, Mexico. In the last three years, we’ve partnered with Dayspring UMC in Tempe, AZ to provide a year-round medical and dental clinic. This year, we’ll be returning for the first time since before the pandemic to support the doctor and dentist in Tochi and provide free care for more than 500 people! You are a critical part of this medical/dental team by your prayers and financial support. Each year the needs are similar, but punctuated by something unusual that God has brought to the team. We’d be so grateful if you’d be willing to support the team with prayer or a donation. The teams have been convinced that prayers have helped solve difficult situations in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. If you’d like to give financially, you can find information at the Connect Hubs on Sunday morning, or you can use the link below, choose “Tochi Buddies” from the dropdown menu. Our team thanks you for your prayers, the opportunity to be in mission, and your financial consideration of the Tochimizolco Mission.
The Grace Extravaganza website is up and will be through the end of March. Please note that we have opened back up tickets for the LINE DANCING CLASS with Katie and Danny Goyer. This event is scheduled for Friday, April 28, 6:30-8:30 pm in the Grace Gathering Room. Using the link below, look for it under the “FIXED PRICE ITEMS” tab.
