Power point and soundboard during worship
Serve St. Mark while in the church service you already attend! We are looking for volunteers to run the slides during all services (8am, 10:30am, and 5:30pm) and/or to run the sound board at 10:30am. No experience necessary! Contact Andy Groothuis at 402-493-8520, call the church office at 402-391-6148, or complete the form at the top of this page.
SUNDAY SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS
We are seeking more teachers, assistants, and subs to help train our children up in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6). If you are interested in filling one of these roles on Sunday morning, contact Casey Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org. All lesson plans and materials are provided for you. All you need is a love of the Lord, availability Sunday morning 9:15am-10:15am, and a desire to help our kids learn and grow!
Help members and guests feel welcome by greeting at the front door and helping with the coffee bar. We especially need volunteers at the 8am servie. Contact Lorrie Wacker by email.
