Dear St. John’s,
Coffee hour went well on Sunday and we are delighted to announce that we will continue to offer it on future Sundays!
It will be held in the parish hall right after the 10:30 service.
Thanks to David Crowe and Williette Gardner for hosting it on the 20th. We are looking for two volunteers for each Sunday in the future.
1 A muffin volunteer to bring two dozen muffins (either homemade or store-bought, your choice).
2 a set-up volunteer to arrive at 10:00,
set up chairs & tables for 25-30 people in the parish hall,
start the coffee in the coffee urn and prepare the coffee machine for decaf right before the 10:30 service,
go to the parish hall right after receiving communion to start the water for tea, put out the cream, sugar, milk, and juice, and serve the coffee & tea.
The set-up volunteer doesn’t have to bring anything: the church provides the coffee grounds, cream, sugar, milk, juice, serviettes, and other supplies.
We’d like both the muffin volunteer and the set-up volunteer to help with cleanup and putting tables away.
We will write instructions and post them in the kitchen with the specifics, and for the next few weeks David will be there to show new volunteers around.
This is a wonderful opportunity to help in a ministry of hospitality. If you would like to volunteer, please reply to me and tell me whether you’d like to bring muffins or do set up, as well as which Sundays you will or won’t be available.
Grace and peace,
