Sunday Greeting and Coffee Hour Opportunities

Serving as a greeter before a Sunday service
is a great way of connecting with fellow church members
and welcoming visitors to FCC.
No experience is necessary, all that is required
is a friendly smile and a warm handshake.
Questions regarding this service opportunity may
be directed to the church office or
by contacting Bob Rogowski.

Hosting a coffee hour after a Sunday service is a great way to
promote fellowship among church members and visitors at FCC.

This service opportunity is handled throughout the year on a
volunteer basis by various church organizations
(boards, committees, teams, clubs, etc.) and
also families and groups of friends.

If interested in hosting a specific Sunday, look for the sign-up sheet posted
on the bulletin board in the hallway near the balcony stairs.

Any questions may be directed to the church office
or Deacon Chairperson, Claire Boyce.
