Hospitality Subs

Can you spare some time on a Sunday morning to assist a hospitality team in welcoming visitors, distributing the order of service, collecting the offering or cleaning the kitchen? Yes, we have hospitality teams for that purpose but sometimes a team may be short a member or two leaving them struggling to keep up. We are putting together a list of people a team can call on as a possible substitute when they are short a team member. The more substitutes, the less often you may be called, and you can specify which job you are most comfortable doing.  If you are already a member of a hospitality team, please also consider joining the list of substitutes.  

 

Please consider joining the list of substitutes by emailing Carolyn or text her at 402-709-3192.
