Saturday Lectors: Volunteers to read the lessons during the Saturday service.
Altar Guild and Ushers: Men and women to serve for a month at a time placing paraments for the upcoming service or greeting those arriving for worship and handing them a bulletin. You'll be working with other volunteers, and the commitment is not difficult.
Video Techs: Volunteers to record the Sunday services for broadcast to a large audience on cable TV. We'll train you! See the Vine Street Journal for more information. Call the church office, 814-536-7521, to volunteer or ask questions about these important ministries.
Musicians: Looking for someone that can play the guitar for some music on a Sunday morning. It is not for every week, just a few. If you can help me out, please let me know as soon as you can. I also have a need for other instrumental help. So if you play any instrument, your help would be very welcome! Thanks.
Singers:. Even if you can only offer one Sunday morning a month, we invite you to join us. It's not as scary as you may think! Anyone age sixteen and older is invited to give it a try. If you can at least sing the melody when we sing our hymns, you're already halfway there! If you have any questions, just contact Howard Bennett at 288-7288 or see me in person.
Looking for Hospital Visitor Volunteers
We are looking for volunteers to visit
members who are in the hospital. In
today’s world hospital stays are usually
brief and patients are in and out quickly.
But it is still important that they know that their church family cares about them.
Visitors are scheduled to go to Conemaugh Hospital and related campuses to visit once a month. Every attempt is made to have at least one visitor per week scheduled. Some days we have no one in the hospital so the visitor does not need to go. Names and locations of those hospitalized can be secured from the church office.
The visits do not need to be very long and it is greatly appreciated if the visitor could pray with the patient before leaving.
If you are interested in visiting please speak with Patty Riddle or Harriett Miller, they can answer any questions you may have.
What is a blessing bag you ask? It is a gallon size plastic bag filed with a number of essential items that can be given to someone who is homeless, down and out or in need of a random act of kindness.
The bags have a label and include a card with a prayer and our church name and address. Members are encouraged to take a bag or two and keep them in your car to give to someone you may encounter who is struggling, down and out or is homeless.
A supply of the bags for members to take will be located in the Lounge. Please only take bags to be used as a random act of kindness. They can serve as a reminder that God loves everyone and as Christians we are signs of God’s love in the community.
Help the West End Food Pantry. Bring canned and packaged goods to the church lounge.
