Sunday School Teachers

As you are considering where best to serve in 2017, I urge you to consider investing your time in our children. We still need many more Sunday School teachers to fully staff our classes.

We have urgent needs in the following children's Sunday School classes at 9:45:
3 year olds – 3 teachers needed
Kindergarten – 2 teachers needed
1st Grade – 4 teachers needed

General info about Sunday school
Sunday school for children at FUMCR is the cornerstone of our Children's Ministry program. Through scripture, play, stories, and activities, children learn about the grace of God through God's son, Jesus Christ, and experience the wholeness of being part of a community of faith. Adult teachers who volunteer their time and talents to be a witness of faith and fellowship are the people who bring this to life as they provide guidance through teaching and scripture. Children learn in the most exciting ways, so come join our team and be the face of FUMCR to our youngest members of our church family. Worried that you don't know enough to teach? Don't be. We have plenty of resources for you and will guide you every step of the way.

Ark House Volunteers

Ark House needs volunteers to fill the position of Rent Ready Checker. Rent Ready Checkers are teams of two people who visit an Ark House apartment after a resident has gone home. The team checks the apartment to be certain the previous resident has followed the required procedures and the apartment is in good condition for the next patient/family. Checkers then notify the Occupancy Chairperson that the apartment is ready to receive a new resident. The apartments are located near Highway 75 and Royal Lane.

Sunday Morning Greeters

As the amount of newcomers continues to increase with the holidays and our new facilities opening, we are in great need of your help!

The Ask:
Please prayerfully consider serving, when your schedule allows, as a greeter at our exterior doors or a welcome area on Sunday mornings.

The Details:
• You will receive an e-mail with a sign-up link every month. You pick-and-choose what works best for your schedule.
• Serve once a week, every other month or just a couple of times a year... whatever you choose, WILL make a difference. We promise!
• Your children or grandchildren are invited and encouraged to serve alongside you!
• Most shifts are 20-30 minutes, so they will minimally disrupt (if at all) your worship or Sunday school class commitments.

Now What?
Click I'm Interested, provide us with your name, phone, and email and we will handle the rest!

Your presence is needed, and it alone will serve as an invitation to others to get connected in our community. Thank you for your consideration!
