Office Coordinator
Psst.  Yeah, you.  Have you been listening to God?  Has God mentioned anything to you about coming to work here? Because we are praying for someone to be our Office Coordinator, three hours a day, four days a week, and we think it might be you. 

This is a great opportunity if you are just entering (or returning to) the workforce, need some flexibility, or even just want to pick up some experience and spending money, maybe even service hours.  Nice people, no heavy lifting, sometimes food, and all the grace and holy water you want, free. Combines the comforting predictability of regular routine with the occasional adrenaline rush of total unpredictability.  No hand-copying of medieval manuscripts required.   Full description here.
