Sunday Service Duty Roster 2014 – 2015
A duty roster for Sunday Services has been prepared. This includes greeting, making coffee/tea, sound system, and offering counters. A copy has been posted in the kitchen and extra copies are in a file folder just inside the kitchen doorway. Please pick up a copy if you did not receive it via email.
Coffee/Tea Duty: For most weeks only one person has been assigned the coffee duty. Two people are needed for this task . A sign-up sheet is posted near the kitchen for additional people to sign up as they are able to commit. Please consider helping in this regard. Be assured that the person already on the list is knowledgeable and will be able to explain what needs to be done.
Thank you for your Sunday service. Your time and commitment are appreciated.
