Last Sunday Lunch Update

The 2018 JCCC Census
Thanks to all who participated in our census this month. We will still be sending forms attached to our weekly emails or you can pick them up at the Information Desk and turn them back in at Census box on the same desk. You may also email us a photo of you and/or your family for the online directory at any time. If you did not get a chance to sign up for online offering/giving, and you’d like help with that, then just let us know and we’ll set up a time to meet and help you with that.

Opportunities to Serve
Provide Relief for Immigrants in Need
Donations for the families of detainees are being channeled through HOLA Lakeway’s GoFundMe page. Here is that link: https://www.gofundme.com/gk9rj-aid-for-families-affected-by-raid. This mode is preferable for financial donations. Please do not donate to JCCC directly.
Join Welcome/Security Teams
Our Welcome and Security Teams are the people who determine whether or not someone has a great experience at JCCC. These ministries set the tone for people who are looking for a church home. Welcome and Security teams also serve as an encouragement to regular JCCC attendees by offering a helping hand and warm environment week in and week out. There are lots of tasks to be done, and we need team members. Join one of these very important teams by emailing email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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.
