Coffee Hour Helpers Needed


Carol Heath is looking for volunteers to team up and help with Coffee Hour Clean-up.  This would be a once a month commitment that would entail leaving the worship service a few minutes early, setting out the prepared coffee and treats, checking for refills during coffee hour and cleaning up afterwards. 11:30 – 12:15ish. 
Connections are made and friendships are formed over a cup of coffee and a doughnut. Please contact Carol Heath at 253-831-3651 or .
