Hallway Helpers Heed the call! Please see Pastor Karen to choose ONE Sunday date for a 45-minute commitment to support our teachers and children. Welcome visitors, encourage our teachers, and keep our children safe by taking your place at the "T" intersection of our education hallways from 10:20 to 11:05 am. Bring a book, a cup of coffee, a friend. Just be there for our church family.

Teachers/Youth Leaders We are blessed to have dedicated leaders in place, but there is a need for greater "depth of bench" as back-up when those leaders are unavailable. Join ANY class as an observer this fall to de-mystify what 40 minutes of teaching/leading involves!
