instructions will be provided. The order forms are in the Narthex for you to fill out.

CHURCH DIRECTORY

It’s time for a new Directory!

Would you like to have a resource to which you could turn to see the faces of those who are part of the Memorial family?   Could you use a list of the most up-to-date addresses, phone numbers, and emails?
Would you be willing to give a bit of your time to make help provide a new directory for the church?  The process is much easier than it was in the past.
 
If you are willing to serve with a group of others to make this a reality, please contact Summer Gordon in the Church Office at (336) 472 -7718.
 
 

NORWAY EXPEDITION

All children ages 5 and up are invited to join the Expedition!

We’ll explore Norwegian culture on the fun geographic mission study with bible stories, music, games, food, and much more! This four-week Expedition begins February 16th from 6-8 pm. The adventure will embark on the third-floor classrooms. Contact Lynda Hepler to sign up!

  

RECEPTIONIST NEEDED

We are needing volunteers to fill a few open spots on the receptionist list:

1st Monday of the Month 9 AM – 12 PM

4th Tuesday of the Month 12 PM – 3 PM

No experience is needed! You will receive on-the-job training. If you are interested in volunteering for this monthly duty, please contact Loretta Usher at 336-475-3929.

A/V TEAM OPPORTUNITY

Our A/V team is looking for a couple of individuals to help with our live stream production as a video producer. This is NOT a technical role, and no previous experience is necessary! We will train you in the use of the systems and what our processes are.

You will learn to use the systems that enable us to professionally stream our worship services to Facebook and YouTube. As a video producer, you will run the live stream, managing all aspects such as camera views, images, and sound levels that you want the viewing audience to experience as the service progresses. You can apply your creative eye to the process to maximize the viewing experience for our online audience.

You can get further information and your questions answered from either Philip Hepler or Tim Lyons. You can find one of us on Sunday mornings in the Vannoy Studio outside Jarrett Hall. Come join our team!     

CLERGY AND STAFF ARE AVAILABLE

You may contact members of the staff directly or by calling the church office at 336-472-7718 and following the instructions on the recording. Here is a list of staff phone extensions and email addresses, for reference:
