Arts & Environment Coordinator Needed Soon

Interior“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”- Acts 20:35

We are in need of a coordinator (or two co-coordinators)
by the END OF JANUARY in order to prepare for Lent. 

There is a great team of helpers in place, but we must have a coordinator to oversee the ministry and organize its implementation.

Our past coordinator has organized all the pertinent information for ease of implementing.  Please prayerfully consider if this is a way that you might be able to serve the Church.

For more information about exactly what the role entails, contact Lisa at 454-7172.  We are blessed to have a great Arts & Environment team of volunteers and our hope is to have a coordinator or possibly two co-coordinators in place by the END OF JANUARY to help lead the team in preparing the environment for the liturgy.
