Extra Time On Your Hands?

Extra time on your hands? Need a distraction? Need a way to feel useful? Need to clear your mind and do some good?

We need your help! We have small jobs around the church that are building and just haven’t gotten the attention that it needs. There are things available for all abilities and you can come anytime of the day, night, weekdays or weekends; whatever fits your schedule. We have supplies here at the church or you can bring yours from home.

Here are some of the things that we desperately need your help with:

  • Dust the window sills in every room
  • Sweep down the cobwebs around the glass windows in the sanctuary (inside and out)
  • Wipe off the garbage cans in the building
  • Clean & wipe down the fridge in the little kitchen
  • Clean & organize the coffee bar
  • Clean and organize the cupboard under the sink in the little kitchen
  • Dust the base boards in the fellowship hall
  • Wash the Glass doors at both ends of the church
  • Move the salt & pepper shakers into the big kitchen cupboards
  • Wash the mirrors in all the bathrooms

Bigger Projects:

  • Paint the Walls in the Sunday School Room (if you want to do this please tell Kathy and she will pick up the paint for you)
  • Use a weed eater around the parking bumpers and the church signs
  • Dust the light fixtures in the sanctuary
  • Change the batteries in all the smoke detectors

Anything you would like to help with, we will appreciate so much! Please let Kathy know if you are able to do one of these projects. A larger list will be on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall.
