Church Helpers

This ministry maintains a list of parishioners (and their special skills) willing to do tasks around the church. This group may be called on by the various ministries under the B&G Committee to help do small repairs, plant shrubs, repair fences or walls, repair furniture, and other “chores” not included in the Sexton responsibilities. The goal is to have six days a year set aside for gathering the group together to take care of the chore list.

How to get involved:
… Join a team of church helpers
… Take on a specific project

Kitchen Ministry

The Kitchen Ministry is intended to maintain the two kitchens in the church in a clean, orderly fashion. Each session takes about 2 hours at the most. We organize the pantry, clean out outdated foods from the refrigerators, clean the dishwasher and wash room, clean out drawers, sinks, steam tables, countertops and cabinets.

How to get involved
… Volunteer to join and team or even captain a team by recruiting 4-6 volunteers to help. At the very most, you will be on kitchen duty every three months.
