Serving with Love

A Volunteer Task Board at ACC

A volunteer board called "Serving with Love" is one of the creative ways we are using to engage volunteers.  Check this webpage to see where your gifts may be used in the service of our church. Please contact Lisa Vingerhoet with any questions or suggestions about the process, or the contact person listed below to talk about the specific posting.

Have a task to add for your committee or ministry? Give Lisa Vingerhoet a call or fill out a form and send it via email to Lisa.


Current Needs

 

Flower Arrangers

We are in need of some new flower volunteers to add to our group of arrangers responsible for the wonderful flowers in the Sanctuary.  The volunteer effort is small and you can sign up for a Sunday that works for you and your schedule.

Chimes Production Coordinator

Learn to use Constant Contact to put together issues of The Chimes from our current Production Coordinator (Cindy Schimpf) and then share responsibility (every other month) to import edited articles into an existing template. The work can be done from home if you prefer. You will need to be comfortable learning new software and have adequate editing skills, but we’ll make sure you are ready before tackling an issue on your own!  Estimated time per issue is 5 to 6 hours (5 or 6 issues/year).

There are files, photographs, recorded sermons, documents, and artifacts stored throughout the church that need to be saved from deterioration, and documentation of these materials needs to be completed. The amount of time required each week and/or each month is flexible and can fit into your schedule.

ACC Website Updates

Learn our website software, Radius web tools, and help the staff and committees keep the pages up-to-date. This requires someone who is confident about learning a new software tool and also has a bit of “creative” spark. Can be done from your home PC for the most part if desired.

Chimes Editor

Is editing one of your strengths? If you are a fairly good speller, know how to shorten an article without changing its essence, and can easily recognize punctuation and grammar mistakes, please consider joining our newsletter team. With our new format, the work can be done from home and includes about 8 hours of volunteer time every other month, over a period of about a week.

Database Coordinator

Learn a new software package (Servant Keeper) and then take the lead in maintaining the integrity of the church’s database. Routine requirement is to visit church once/week to enter updates (about one hour/week, timing flexible). After you are comfortable with the software, we’ll ask you to generate occasional specific reports from the software for the staff, Clerk, and Deacons as needed, and to run an updated Church Directory monthly.
