Sunday School Teacher Needed Beginning in January, a Sunday School teacher is needed for the third grade classroom. A team of four teachers will be sharing the schedule, so each person will not be teaching every Sunday. This class learns the Holy Moly curriculum, which is fun and easy to teach. No experience is necessary - just the desire to get to know and help our third graders. Please contact Tracey Torosian if you would like to join this wonderful team.
Acolytes Needed We are in need of adding to our roster of Acolytes. We are looking for boys and girls ages 6th grade and above. We would, also, like to have adult Acolytes to assist at the 8 am service as well as other special services. We will be holding training sessions of Acolytes soon. Contact Ted Hagan - 248.755.1655 for more information.
Children's Chapel Volunteers Volunteers are needed during the 9am church service. As a volunteer, you will usher the children to Children's Chapel after the children's sermon, teach the Gospel lesson of the day, say prayers with the children and return with the children to the service during the announcements. We will assemble a team of volunteers so each person isn't helping each week. If you can offer even two Sundays through the end of the year please join our team and contact Tracey Torosian
MOPS Shepherd Needed Volunteers are needed to assist with childcare during Mothers of Preschool Students (MOPS) meetings the first Monday of the month; 8:45 - 11:45am. By volunteering, you will give our moms a much-needed break and time for spiritual renewal. Please contact Co-coordinators Mary-Caitlin Streets or Tamara Wilson to volunteer.
