Opportunities to Serve in Children and Preschool
The church has an incredible way for you to serve the body and grow closer to Christ through our children’s department. You have gifts to share with our children! Would you consider using these gifts, whether full-time, or as part of a rotation, to help us provide the best possible teaching to our kids? Pastor Bobby will be at the Next Steps table after both services to give you more information about where you can serve. Please pray about this opportunity!
