One of our goals at Bethany is to provide all our members and friends with an opportunity to give of their time and talent in service to others. There are literally dozens of ways to do this, from local community service to international missions, from hospitality to parish support, from children and youth to music, from team service to worship leadership. Some of these are one-time, short-term opportunities. Others are for long periods. Folks here are active and engaged. Bethany is a lively place!
Annually in September we invite everyone to complete what is called a “Service Interest Survey” (see below). This provides a chance for people to indicate an interest in an area where they would like to serve. Filling out the survey does not represent a commitment to the service, but it shows an interest. Then when a new opening arises, the church can contact the person to match the two. And as new opportunities come up, they are publicized in the Sunday bulletin and in the newsletter.
Different people have many varied interests and talents. We want to try to make sure that everyone has the chance to put those talents to work as often as possible.
