After COVID everyone wanted Coffee Hour back but only a few people ever volunteer to make it happen. Could you be the solution?
It can be a bit daunting if you have never done anything like this before. Current hosts would be very happy to "apprentice" you if you are nervous about jumping straight in.
If you are worried about not providing food which is "good enough", please don't. Easier said than done -right? We have some people who are very talented bakers - if you are not why not think about doing something a bit different - or you can use store bought. If you find even that difficult please ask about helping and using Church supplies for food. We always have things in reserve in the freezer.
People are genuinely grateful to have Coffee Hour - you can even team up with another person if you are not wanting to do it on your own. Perhaps you are great at making things look nice and cleaning up but not good with food - find someone who is - work together.
The unfortunate thing is that our hosts are having to work really hard at the moment and it is not fun for them any more. They all love doing it but having to do it too often burns people out. Coffee Hour simply cannot exist unless as many people as possible take a turn.
Please email Janet if you want to know more, or you can just take the leap and sign up in the Narthex. If you have zero idea what you are doing - ask for help. Our experienced volunteers know that getting you up and running means less work in the long run.
Thank you for considering this as an offering to Redeemer.
