In order to re-open our doors with health and safety at the top of our priority list, we rely on three teams of volunteers to help us carry out our pandemic protocols. We would love to add you to a team!

Health Team

The health team is the first point of contact when people arrive at church. They greet everyone with a smile (that you can't see, because, masks!) and relay our protocols to visitors. You do not have to have a medical background to participate on this team, but we do ask that members have strengths in communication!

Welcome Team

The welcome team is responsible for monitoring crowds; essentially, members of the welcome team usher people to available seating, guide persons out of the building after service, and assure that we maintain proper capacity limits.

Cleaning Crew

The cleaning crew are our silent heroes, hiding in the shadows with their spray bottles of disinfectants, just waiting for the right moment to attack! Persons on the cleaning crew will spray down chairs between services and disinfect commonly touched surfaces.

Worship Ministry
