SET-UP & REFRESHMENTS!
If you can arrive about 20-25 minutes early or stay a little later, we are in need of volunteers to SET UP and BREAK DOWN.  Set up consists of placing the seating, bulletins, hymnals, preparing the social hour area, etc.  Break down is the reverse. We also NEED REFRESHMENTS each Sunday for the Social Hour after church.  Please bring what you are willing to share and we will do the rest.
