Ways to Serve the Church

Food Preparation & Serving

As Presbyterians, we gather around meals a lot! We sure can use your help, no skills required!
If you like to bake, how about helping with our Valentine's cookies for our college students and military personnel (see Presbyterian Women). We also sometimes make cookies and take them to our local firefighters. We bake bread to take to our new visitors (see Evangelism Ministry Team). Baked goods are always needed for Vacation Bible School (CARRYS SASSER) and Family Promise (see Bill and Lana).

If you like to help in kitchen, stir a pot or serve a meal, or if you are a hobby cook, your talents and willing hands are welcomed at Wednesday Night Live, Courtyard Conversations, and the Fourth Sunday Covered Dish Luncheon. (See Congregational Life Ministry Team). Other events where you can serve are the Church’s picnic, Spiritual Renewal Weekend, and Vacation Bible School.

Teaching & Supervising

We are fortunate to have a Director of Discipleship, Christian Education and Youth in CARRYS SASSER.
Although we are using our facilities to the maximum for current Christian Education classes, there is always demand for new and different groups and your input would be most welcome. Contact PAT O'HEAR on our Christian Education Ministry Team or CARRYS SASSER.

Care & Assistance

Please consider helping with transportation or meal assistance for our physically challenged members,  or assist with any arising needs channeled through JUDY PERSONS from our Missions Ministry Team.
We have helped with hurricane repairs as needed. We continually assist people within our congregation with upkeep of property and necessary repairs.
Our church is one of the partner churches for hosting homeless families through the 'Family Promise'.
This ministry can use people who do laundry, spend the night, host a meal, prepare a meal, set up and take down cots, or prepare the facility ahead of these weeks.
If you love to be around little children, our nursery will gladly take volunteers. STACEY VAIL organizes these from the Christian Education Membership Team.
We have a very caring and committed 'Bereavement Ministry' which accompanies grieving individuals along their painful journey. Please see DOT THREADGILL for details or contact the 

Christian Care MT.

Clerical & Organizational

For assistance with bulk mailings, volunteering in the church office, website maintenance, newsletter publication etc., contact HAL CALLAWAY from Administration and Personnel Ministry Team.

Bus Driving & Upkeep

The Church has a 14 passenger bus at our disposal.
For the 11 o'clock service, we offer transportation to and from the church for Westminster Village residents.
If you are able to drive either vehicle, please contact the Congregational Life Ministry Team or the Church office and sign up for the dates that suit you best.
If you are interested in learning about the upkeep of those vehicles or able to help with that in any way, please contact SCOTT SASSER from the Facilities Ministry Team.

Welcoming & Listening

If you like to socialize and welcome new people, your talents could be used for 'Wednesday Night Live', overseen by BECKY NAYLOR from Congregational Life Ministry Team.
On Sundays, you might be an usher or greeter; please see RICHARD GEIGER from the Worship Ministry Team.
Our Evangelism Ministry Team drops off a welcome loaf of bread to all new visitors and more helpers are always welcome for that.
We also have a very active Stephen Ministry, lead by AMES YOKEL and PAM KEELER from the

Christian Care MT.

Our 'Shepherds' maintain casual contacts with members, run under the

Christian Care MT.

We have a very active 'Prayer Chain', organized by KAY BANKER, also from the Christian Care Team.
Of course, there is always Sunday School, or perhaps a social weekday group such as the 'Men's Breakfast Group' or the 'Presbyterian Women'. See also 'Small Groups'.

Balancing Books & Budgets

Are you good with numbers?

We count, record, deposit and manage all church funds, generate and review monthly financial statements, organize particular campaigns, oversee our endowment fund, educate and encourage or congregation in their stewardship and giving of time, talents and treasures.

To help with this or similar work, please contact Joe Davis or Shelly LaGroue with the Stewardship & Finance Ministry Team.

Maintenance & Fixing

Can you hold a hammer, assess roof damage, rake leaves, shovel sand, negotiate the best deal from differing job estimates? Then contact SCOTT SASSER from the Facilities Ministry Team.

Outdoors & Landscaping

We maintain a beautiful little patch of green up at 'top' of Spanish Fort, and we provide a playground for our Preschool at our church. There is always something to be done. Whether you are knowledgeable in landscape design, want to pull out weeds or can contribute a shovel, we would love to see you! SCOT SASSER from the Facilities Ministry Team would love to hear from you.

Artistic & Creative

Do you enjoy calligraphy, art, painting, drawing, or graphic design?
We would love your help for example in doing the artwork for the annual Vacation Bible School (VBS), help with church plays, engage with our youth, get on board with website maintenance and publicity or come up with new ways to employ our gifts to God's glory! Please see CARRYS SASSER, our Director of Discipleship, Christian Education.
Would you like to be involved in singing, playing an instrument, drama, puppetry, dancing, filming or photography?
Our Director of Music Ministry/Music Educator BONNIE HARIEL knows all about that. Please contact her with any ideas! We would also love to get an online member directory and are always looking for photographers.
Are you into crafts, needlepoint, knitting, crocheting or sewing? Maybe our 'Prayer Shawl Ministry' is for you? JUDY PERSONS can help you find your niche, from the Missions Ministry Team.
Perhaps you know about flower arrangement or interior design? Please help CAROLYN DONALDSON from our Flower Guild and Wedding Guild. They have a sign-up in the Narthex also. The Worship Ministry Team can also help you.

College Connection

Would you be good at staying in touch with our members who embark on their college journey or military training? Let them know in your own way that their church is thinking of them and remind them of God's love for them. To get a better idea of the many ways you can help with this, please contact MARCIA GIFFORD from the Christian Care Team.

Praise Band

Would you like to perform with other musicians to make a joyful praise to the Lord? Contact Bonnie Harrell if you would like to share your musical talents by playing in out Praise Band.
