Opportunities to Serve
Are You Musically Inclined?
If you sing or play an instrument and you’re interested in serving with the JC3 worship team on Sunday mornings, we would love to have you! We’re looking to add a few consistent vocalists as well as any “substitute” instrumentalists - either for special occasions or in instances where our regular team members are unavailable. Please contact Stephanie at 865-824-7057 or email@example.com OR plan to meet with her this week for more information on how to join in!
KidsWay Looking for Volunteers
Our KidsWay department is looking for folks who would enjoy helping in ANY capacity (technology, security, teaching, etc.) If you have a heart to serve and would like more information on how you can volunteer, please contact Michelle Emmert (michelle.emmert80gmail.com.)
Food Pantry Donations
We serve many non-perishable items to members of our community as well as church family each month from our pantry, especially during the colder months of the year. If you would like to make donations, you may bring items to room 203 (near the front office) or you may make a monetary donation by writing a check to JCCC and mark “food pantry” in the memo line.
Welcome Team for Wednesdays!
Due to the growth of our Wednesday nights, we are looking for a few friendly faces who might help us Welcome people and help them find their classes.
WHAT WILL I DO: Have your JC3 team lanyard on and be ready to greet from 6:10pm – 6:40pm. Know where the classes/ministries meet (we have a TV screen and a handout that will help you). Help people feel welcome! Sign up on your Connection Card or contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org to become a volunteer.
Serve with Sunday Lunches
If you are willing to serve on a Sunday lunch clean-up team, your team will work only three times a year for about 20-30minutes each time. The job is washing dishes and taking out some trash. It’s only three times per year because we’ll have three teams of four people (we take some months off from lunches). If you think you can help, then we’d love to have you on one of our lunch teams! Please reply to this email or talk to Monique Hewling at church!
We are making plans to remodel our bathrooms located near the sanctuary and we need folks willing to strip wallpaper and repaint. If you can help with these jobs, please respond to this email and we will give you more details about the task.
