Screen/Media and Tech Volunteers needed for Contemporary Worship

Volunteers are urgently needed for the Contemporary worship service on Sundays. Volunteers would serve once a month, sitting in the tech booth and advancing the screens by computer.  It's as easy as pushing a space bar!  Training is available.   

Stephen Ministers are here to help

If you are in a struggle with anxiety, loss, and/or isolation, you might not know exactly when your understanding and acceptance from this crisis will come.  But, we can rely on our risen Lord to be truly present with it all, even when others can't be. If you need a message of hope and encouragement, call on a Stephen Minister to help you on this journey. A Stephen Minister can help you through the valleys of life to help restore your joy.  Call Kelly Gifford- 316 708 0691 to be matched with a Stephen Minister.
