Website Tech Team: We are seeking new members to join our website team for a few specific, weekly update needs. We use a Wix website and can train you and provide assistance as needed. If you are comfortable using new technology, this is a great place to volunteer from the comfort or your home or office. Team members are needed to track our online attendance, work on some video editing and entering events into our blog. You can work on one of these or learn to do it all. Contact Deborah in the church office for more information.
9:00 a.m. Indoor Ushers: We are now offering 30 minute private training sessions for new ushers at your convenience. We will teach you how to help open the sanctuary, distribute our sealed Holy Communion kits, and seat/dismiss the congregation. We have put new sanitary measures in place to keep you and our members/guests safer and healthier. Current ushers may schedule themselves HERE.
9:00 a.m. Worship Greeters: Choose your location. One greeter is needed for the welcome desk to say hello and answer any questions. Two Sanctuary door greeters check people in to keep an accurate record of worshippers for contact tracing and capacity purposes. You can train on the job any Sunday morning at 8:40 a.m. Simply let us know ahead of time that you would like to train for this. Current greeters may schedule themselves HERE.
South Oakland Shelter Week: We are currently working with Lighthouse/South Oakland Shelter to assist the homeless the week of May 2 to 8. This will be in place of our hosting South Oakland Shelter clients in our building due to the shelter’s COVID policies. We will be making, packaging, and delivering delicious meals for homeless families currently being sheltered. Click HERE to sign up to help or call the church office.
Landscaping: Spring is right around the corner. Are you interested in adopting a flower bed or joining the team that maintains the Columbarium garden? We are in need of 6 new volunteers for these projects.
Prayer Team: Each Sunday morning, the Prayer Team, in their own spaces, prays for the mission of our church, for our worship team and for worship itself. They pray for all of those who watch or participate and they ask the Holy Spirit to bless all who worship with us and to guide those who have yet to meet Christ into ministry. If you would like to join the team in slots between 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., please contact the church office.
Bulletin Board Designers: We have the information and the supplies. You have the inspiration! This is an occasional volunteer opportunity that can be done on your schedule. Now that we are regathering in the building, let’s utilize our bulletin boards to give our members and guests the information they need to be better connected.
10:30 a.m. Outdoor Ushers: Our parking lot worship offers a simple, easy place to volunteer while still maintaining physical distancing. Simply count our number of worshippers, take any offerings in a basket provided and, if you are physically able, help with clean up. We will train you any Sunday morning that is convenient for you.
