Are you new to Westminster? Looking for a way to get involved? The Worship Committee is looking for a flower coordinator. Responsibilities would include developing and maintaining a website sign-up for flower donations; coordinating donations with Mickie (our office administrator) and the florist; and deciding on artificial arrangements for Sundays that don’t have live flower donations. Many members enjoy giving flowers in memory of loved ones, but there are many “empty” Sundays. We would like to increase participation and seek creative, economical, and environmentally-friendly ways to brighten our sanctuary and remember loved ones. We want to thank Liza Millett for her many years of dedication and care for this “behind the scenes” ministry. Her efforts are greatly appreciated. Please call or email Patty Vandever (434-996-4190) if you have questions or if you are interested in helping out.
If you have been thinking of giving flowers in honor or memory of a family member or friend, now is the time to do it. There are currently dates available in October and November. Pick a date, sign-up on the poster on the bulletin board in the Gathering Place and fill out and return the yellow form, with a check, to the office. Donated flower arrangements not only beautify the Sanctuary, the deacons also deliver them to members who are unable to come to worship. Any questions, call Liza Millett (923-0358).
Are you a new member looking for a way to get involved? Maybe you are a long-time Westminster member looking for a new challenge, or a youth interested in music production or theater tech? Please consider volunteering as a sound system “engineer.” You can sign up for whatever dates you want (at either 8:30 or 11:00) with no long-term commitment. Training and mentoring will be provided by our experienced volunteers. This is an excellent opportunity to give of your time and talents to our worship experience. Currently we have a particular need for volunteers, so please consider helping out. Email Patty Vandever or Michael Costanzo to learn more or express interest.
Greeters are needed in March and April to help visitors feel welcome at Westminster. Please sign up in the Gathering Space or call Carolyn Kelly for more information.
Volunteers are needed to help with communion preparation. This is a simple but necessary element of our worship service for which we need people once a month. It is a good way to participate in the life of the church AND to make it even easier, I will be preparing communion for all 8:30 services. I will also be there to help with preparations for the 11:00 service. Please consider giving back to Westminster in this special and important way. You can email me, Liza M, to express your interest in this opportunity.
