You have talent and skills to offer and this is an exciting time to be involved at Gale. A new church offers lots of opportunity and challenge as we navigate the operation of this beautiful new facility.
If you would like to be a part of that, please consider joining the Board of Managers. The Board would like to add 1 or 2 new members to its ranks.
Take a look at the Board of Managers page on our website to get an idea of what the Board considers at its monthly meetings. Or contact our Board Chair, Bruce MacIntyre, email@example.com for more information.
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
Many hands make light work, it is said and volunteers are always welcome and needed for:
Sunday school relief teachers
Operating audio-visual during service
Coffee and Fellowship
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering!
Sunday School Volunteers
Adam and Denise have been Sunday School teachers for a couple of years or so and their experience has been a positive one.
“God knows, I am not an expert on scripture, Christianity, or kids, but I have found out that I don’t have to be!!
The first Sunday night of each month members of Gale help make supper at the House of Friendship. There are several teams and each team helps about three times a year. If you would like to help or be a spare with this fulfilling experience give Dave Chalmers a call and you can be added to a team.
Board of Managers
The Board of Managers would also welcome another member or two. As well as attending a monthly meeting, Board members share the task of collection and counting each Sunday. If you think you would be interested, please contact Board Chair Sarah Bradshaw.
Gale Presbyterian Church appears to be a beehive of activity at times. Many members happily volunteer for a variety of events and activities, such as
apple peeling and pie dough rolling in the fall,
monthly luncheons that fill the church with wonderful aromas,
the knitting of hats, mitts, scarves, and prayer shawls that fly off knitting needles each month in the Helping Hands group,
teaching and leading youth,
technology support during services,
stewardship of the church’s resources.
Why do so many people get involved in so many different ways?
The individual reasons may be varied, some simple and some complex; however, at the root is a belief that these acts of service are a way to glorify, praise, and thank God.
And the funny thing about giving is that God returns the gift. Maybe not right away. And maybe not in the ways we expect. But He does.
The fellowship that comes from working together is a significant reason for volunteering and just might be the immediate way God shows us His love.
