Ushers: As an usher, you help the Deacons collect tithes and offerings and give a big smile to the folks in the pews as you pass the collection bags. With a few more ushers added to the team, this is a five minute task done in three months spread throughout the year. Contact: Lee Matthews

The committee typically meets 4-6 times per year to enjoy a great meal and plan events big and small. Contact: Josh Diack, Pastor of Congregational Life
