Volunteer Care and Service Survey
Thanks for considering specific ways that you can use your gifts and abilities to care for members of our church family. Please take a few minutes to check which specific care categories you would be willing to help serve in. The last category is “other” and will provide an opportunity for you to add any service categories not already mentioned.
By completing this survey, you are agreeing to add your name to a list (not public) to be used by the Director of Congregational Care & Counseling and a few other caregivers, who would contact you for possible service and ministry to an individual or family in need. Additionally, you will not be expected to provide the service or meet the need on every occasion, but rather you would agree to be contacted by email, text or phone when the need arises. This process will be evaluated annually.
Check the options you are willing to serve in.
