~~ OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE ~~

SUMMER CAMP NEEDS ADULT VOLUNTEERS

We need one adult for every five children we register for summer camp. The number of adult volunteers thus determines the number of children we can accept. Summer Camp is July 8-12. This year we offer full-day as well as half-day summer camp. See Nancy Varga to volunteer.

Coffee Time Really Needs Help

We REALLY need your help!!  The Coffee Time Schedule is looking very empty these days!! If you can help this Sunday please let Judy Clark know (905-428-1444 or e-mail me at jlclark@bell.net).   If you can help any other Sunday in March or April, please check the schedule in the kitchen (on the cupboard over the hand wash sink).

 If  you have never helped and wonder what this entails, here is a brief description;

  •  We provide the beverages, napkins, and such, all we ask that you bring some snacks and goodies for the people to enjoy after the service.

  • Some suggestions would be, cheese & crackers, fruit, sweets & cookies, munchies (chips, cheesies, pretzels, etc).   Basically it is up to you what you would like to bring in.

  • We do suggest you arrive around 10:30 on your Sunday to get your food ready for after service,  we do our best to have the coffee made, tables set up, mugs out, juice made and anything else we can do to make it easier for after the service!! 

  • We also ask that you assist with the clean-up, washing the mugs & glasses, and tidying up after most people have finished enjoying their time of hospitality.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, or approach me on Sunday. 

We appreciate our volunteers, and would love to have you help us with this important ministry.
