It has been brought to Pastor John’s attention that there are members of the congregation that would be willing to assist on Sunday mornings as liturgist, but feel they are not properly prepared to do this. If you have had an interest in being liturgist, but feel you lack the training, please plan on attending a short liturgist training on Monday, Sept. 30 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Pastor John will go over all of the aspects of helping out as a liturgist that day. Even if you have helped out as a liturgist in the past, but would like a quick update, please come to this training. It will be short, fun and painless. If we get enough people willing to step up as a liturgist, we hope you will only need to serve a couple of Sundays in a six month span. You don’t need to register prior to the training, just come to the Sanctuary on Monday, Sept. 30 at 7:00 p.m. We hope to see many willing volunteers there.
