Nursery Attendant
We are looking for volunteers who will be on our list of nursery attendants to help watch the nursery on Sundays when there are families in worship who might want to use it. You are not obligated to any particular Sunday, we just want to have a list of 4 or 5 people so that on any given Sunday if we need nursery help there will be someone here who can. We have a video monitor in the nursery that will be hooked up to our Facebook Live broadcast, enabling whoever is in there to follow along with the worship service. Volunteers will need to complete the Safe Gatherings certification. If you have not been certified and are interested contact Pastor Alice.
