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 readers
- Nursery duty
- Sunday school relief teachers
- Operating audio-visual during service
- Coffee and Fellowship
Please contact us if you are interested in volunteering!
Sunday School Volunteers
“God knows, I am not an expert on scripture, Christianity, or kids, but I have found out that I don’t have to be!!
Did you know?
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.
