Service Volunteers for 2016-2017 

In late June, we will be starting to book volunteers for the 2016/17 Worship Services. If you volunteered this past year & wish to remain on our team, do nothing! If you wish to take this coming year off, please let Linda Wilton or Doug Breckman know. If you did not volunteer last year & wish to join our team, please let us know that also.

For first time volunteers (& seasoned veterans), we will be holding training sessions for each of the positions in early September!
