Want to help and Volunteer?

We’re always looking for volunteers to come and help!

When I say that we need volunteers from 10 years up to 100 years old… I really mean it! We are all called to be disciples of Christ and share the gifts that we’ve been given by God. So whatever way you can do to become a bigger part of the ministry of this Church, we want you to be able to help!
