It’s that time of year! The person who sits in the pew next to you or across the aisle may be asking you to help on a board. I know from experience that you don’t need experience – since I skipped over the “Moderator-Elect training period,” I’ve discovered how supportive everyone is. You will discover the same thing. You will also discover or re-discover how good it feels to support your peers (of all ages) in church and your church’s mission. (And, of course, there is the old cliché, “many hands make light work.”) Your church does need you!
So, can you spare 2-3 hours/month? What’s your favorite thing? Are you interested in trying something new? You don’t have to wait to be asked; you can call or volunteer for your area of interest or ask a board chairperson to talk about what his/her board does or how you can help. There will be copies of the descriptions of the duties of each board available in the Fellowship Hall; or call the church office for a copy of a particular board you think you might be interested in. Please feel free to call me at 352-4548 or the church office at 352-3448 or any board chairperson (Tom Coburn, Len Ippolito, Gay Lenhard, Paulette Morgan, Ginny Worden, Michele Zelaya).
