Annual Reports


Service Groups

Service Groups provide two key ministries: 1) hosting coffee hour and 2) ushering, which includes handing out bulletins, greeting members and visitors, and receiving the offering. Reminder: Ushers stay up front during the Offertory Prayer.

The Captains are responsible for making sure that these Sunday responsibilities are covered by people from their Service Group.
