Serve During Worship

Greeter

Serve once per month 30 minutes prior to the worship of your choice and 10 minutes following the service by offering a warm smile and friendly welcome to our many guests and members.  Contact Terri Bowden.

Andrew Minister

Serve once per month during Sunday worship services by assisting our newest visitors in finding their way on campus and into the life of the church.  This role takes greeter hospitality one step further by offering folks help in locating Sunday School and Nursery, find answers to questions, and collect information for staff follow up.  It’s not about knowing all the answers.  Andrew Ministry is about offering a warm smile, a genuine welcome, and a connection to our newest folks.  Andrew Ministers are given training.  Contact Belen Thorne, Nancy Stevenson.

Usher

Serve once per month during a worship service of your choice.  Ushers do the important work before and during services of handing out bulletins, directing worshipers to their seats, collecting offering plates, and directing flow during communion services.  Training is provided!  Contact Rae Frenette.

Communion Server

Serve as you’re available on Communion Sundays in the worship service of your choice.  Serving communion is a simple yet holy experience.  When you sign up as a server, you will receive an email once per month with a link to sign up.  If you are available, you sign up to serve either bread or cup.  Training and instructions are provided.  Contact Rae Frenette.

Tech Team

Do you have special skills related to computers, photography, video, or running a sound/light board? If so, we have numerous serving opportunities for which you might be well suited.  Contact Tricia Gossett.

Serve Outside of Worship

Office Volunteer

There are many opportunities to help out in the church office!  If you’re interested in donating your time on a rotational basis for either a morning (9 am – 1 pm) or afternoon (1 pm – 5 pm) shift, we need your help in greeting visitors, answering the phones, and clerical work such as data entry, filing, copying, and paperwork.   Contact  Wanell Soslow.

Facilities and Grounds Projects

The First Church Trustees and facilities staff work tirelessly to make sure that we care well for our beautiful campus. There are many opportunities in both landscaping and maintenance. For maintenance, contact Lucretia Lehrmann, Trustee President.

If you love to dig in the dirt, can tell the difference between liriope grass and nut grass, are willing to periodically remove unsightly weeds from the church grounds, and are available to give our grounds a little TLC, please contact Cindy Thompson at 512.255.3336 or cindy@fumc-rr.org.
