FAITH FORMATION MINISTRY TEAM offers educational and faith formation activities that allow adults to explore their Christian beliefs and experience God’s love and gift of faith with deeper understanding.  We are seeking people who love learning and are adept in developing, organizing and presenting classes, seminars, workshops, retreats and other presentations.  Team members are “Doers” and actively participate in all aspects of the activities Faith Formation commits to offering.  If your interest or background is in teaching and you cannot commit to full time participation, there are opportunities throughout the year to share your gift by leading a class or seminar.  We hope you accept our invitation to serve by contacting Linda Babcock at lindababcockscat@gmail.com or (916) 608-2109.

USHERS for worship services provide an invaluable service. In many ways, ushers are the “face” of the church. It is important that an usher be friendly, honest, and willing to serve. It is an honorable position in the church, requiring integrity, cordiality, and wisdom. Ushering requires a true love for the people of the church and a desire to promote an atmosphere of reverence and worship in the house of God.   Click here to learn more about the role of our ushers. Please contact Coordinator Earl Cole coleearle@johndeere.com to express your interest and obtain more information.

GREETERS for worship services, along with the ushers, are the first ones people see when they   arrive.  They shouldn’t be too informal, as visitors will partly form their impression of the church by how they are greeted. Duties include checking the narthex for cleanliness and tidiness, locating bulletins, unlocking and opening doors and familiarity with answers to common questions like “where is the restroom?”  They are cordial, friendly people who greet everyone with a smile (by name if you have met them) and always greet the children, too.  Click here to learn more about the role of our greeters. Please contact Coordinator Le Viksten leandmarg@gmail.com  to express your interest and obtain more information.
