If you feel God is calling you to serve our church in some capacity, please contact one of the following team leaders:


Building and Grounds Maintenance.  It takes a lot of people to maintain our large building and the yard.  If you are knack for fixing, building, renovating, or helping, we can use you!  Call Charlie (330- 698-3103) or Leonard (330-567-2420).


Worship team.  Our church is looking for people who can genuinely worship our Lord.  You don’t have to be the best singer or musician but you do have to love God and want to express that love through our time of worship.  The following positions are also available; sound booth, PowerPoint, video/ multimedia presentations, and special music.  Contact Mandy if you want to help.  (330-264-5826)  


Ladies Quilting Group.  Join the ladies as they use quilting to be a blessing to those in our community and abroad.  This group meets the second Wednesday of every month at Helen Lewis’ House.  If you have questions or need directions, give Helen a call at 330-345-7180.


If you want to help mow the church’s grass, give Don Ridenbaugh (330-264-0356) your name & phone number.  He’ll call you and let you know what day he’s coming to the church to cut the grass.  (We need people to bring their weed-eaters!) 


Children’s church and Nursery Workers needed.  Contact Amanda McLain (330-347-6548) if you would like to serve in one of these two areas.


Can you smile and shake people’s hands at the same time?  If you can, we need you to be a greeter.  Our church’s goal is to have a greeter at every door before and after our Sunday morning service.  If interested, please call Patrick Sprague (330-567-2053).


Adopt-a-highway.  Help us serve our community by picking up trash along the side of the road.  For more information, please call Patrick Sprague (330-567-2053).


We need people to work The Café.  Every Sunday Morning, before and after the service, we will be serving hot and cold beverages.  If you would like to help work at The Café on Sunday mornings, please speak to Michelle Pierce before or after the service.


Good with Computers?  We need someone to set up a room for the kids.  We already have the computers.  All we need is someone who is willing to install software, parental controls, and eventually set them up in a network with each other and the internet.


Like to Clean?  If you want to help keep our building looking and smelling clean, contact Mid at 264-1503.




Check out the Church Website:  There are a few new features that may be of interest to you or someone you know.  The website is also a great way to communicate with Pastor Matt and the rest of the church.


In case you were wondering…  If you have an emergency, need prayer, or have concerns about the church, and you cannot get in touch with Pastor Matt, please contact one of your Deacons.
