Immediate Need: Children's Ministry Looking for 65 New Volunteers
To launch our Fall children's ministry on a high note, we need you! We serve about 550 kids on a Sunday morning, Birth-5th grade. We already have hundreds of volunteers happily continuing to serve with kids. We need 65 volunteers to partner with them to fully staff our classrooms and small groups. We have openings in almost every age level.
Unfortunately, and this is the hard part, we will not be able to keep all of our classrooms and small groups open on Sunday morning if we don't have enough volunteers to keep our kids safe. Do you feel the nudge? Sign up here to come test drive and see what we do and see if its the right place for you to bless kids and be blessed by them.
Sign Up HERE and put "Children's Ministry" as your interest.

3rd Service Survey Notes
You received a survey from Dan Deeble this week regarding our 3rd Service. We're hoping to find an optimal service time on Sunday. However, you may have experienced confusion over the ranking of the service times.
1) If you're not 80% or more likely to consider another service time, please leave the ranking exercise blank. (At first the survey tool didn't allow that, but go back and it will now)
2) If you are going to rank the 4 service times, you MUST rank them 1-4. All FOUR numbers must be used. You can't just put a partial ranking in there.
Once again, sorry for the confusion - and we appreciate your help on this survey!
