Southminster has agreed to host the Presbytery of Miami Valley on Saturday, February 9. The average attendance of clergy, elders, Presbytery staff, and visitors is over 100 for the meeting and around 60 for the luncheon. This is an opportunity to offer hospitality to our neighbors in Christ, and it will take a lot of volunteers! So far, we have identified 35 volunteer positions that we need to fill, including people to help with parking, a light breakfast, lunch, greeting, giving directions, registration and more! Additionally, some of our elders will help serve communion during worship.
Some of us will need to be at the church early because registration begins at 8 a.m. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. and will end after we serve lunch, unless their meeting runs long and has to be continued afterward.
The volunteer positions are described below. Sign up by emailing Lynn@sminster.com, or calling the church office at (937)433-1810.
