dinners and special functions (this includes meal planning, set-up, and clean up
activities for these types of events)

contemporary worship experiences through music.

other dishes for meals and freeze them for future meals for families after funerals and
other special needs. Or, coordinate food items to take to members in need.
Member Care:
     Volunteers would call on members in need in homes, nursing homes, heath care
facilities, to offer companionship, trips outside their facility (where feasible), and keep
in touch via telephone and mail.

and the community about the church through newsletters, website, brochures and
listings in local newspapers and directories.
Communitiy Projects
