Volunteers greet the families and their guests and direct them to the appropriate areas. Committee members remain with the families until they process into the service, after which the volunteers’ responsibilities are complete. Because baptisms are scheduled on specific Sundays throughout the year, volunteers receive a calendar indicating the Baptism Sundays.
Volunteers for this committee prepare communion or assist in setting up on Sunday mornings. Chairmen Karen and John McRae coordinate and schedule members for this committee. Communion is offered every first Sunday of the month as well as a few additional times during the year.
Volunteers are assigned in teams to greet people as they come to the 11 o’clock service. Members of this committee are assigned a specific Sunday of the month to stand at the doors of the sanctuary and welcome everyone; their time of service ends when the worship service begins.
Usher teams work together at each service to hand out bulletins, guide people to available seats and collect the offering. Each team serves on a specific Sunday of the month, and teams are assigned to both 8:45 and 11:00 services. Each team has a captain and co-captain who make the assignments for their team.
The flower guild designs the floral arrangements for the Sanctuary on the second and fourth Sunday of each month, September – May. Guild members volunteer in teams for an assigned Sunday and then are responsible for purchasing the flowers and arranging them for their assigned Sunday. This group also sponsors workshops by local designers who demonstrate various design techniques and share ideas for chancel floral arranging.
The wedding committee provides guidance, directions and assistance for weddings. They assist with the rehearsal and the wedding and help coordinate with the bride and groom and their families in the planning and logistics of the service. It takes a minimum of two volunteers for a small wedding and four for a large one.
