We have a few opportunities coming up for everyone to volunteer

Volunteer Needed- Do you like to make people feel cared for? Celebrated? Then you may be the person we are looking for to help with our greeting card ministry. If you are interested please contact Kim Williams at administrator@bethelwinchester.com

Saturday August 20th We will be removing the dead spruce tree at the north entrance to the church, "sprucing up" (no pun intended) the bed around the new sign, and removing the trees and vines around the trash dumpster enclosure. We will have beverages available as it will probably be a warm day. More details will be coming later in August.

If you are able to help, please reply to Dave Shoberg at facility@bethelwinchester.com
Looking for volunteers to trim the "Leatherleaf viburnum" and the
"Cherry laurel" around the Mission Hall entrance. As you can see in the picture these plants are greatly overgrown and are in need of some TLC. 

We will haul away all the cuttings so we just need trimmers to get in there and wrestle these plants back into manageable shape. Once we have volunteers we will work to find an amicable date to do the work.

Please contact David Shoberg (facility@bethelwinchester.com) if this is something you would like to help with.

Please take a moment to sign up and take a turn helping make Sunday morning happen in an effective and smooth manner.
