You would serve about one Sunday each month, and the dates can be flexible if you have a conflict. Training is provided; if you have used a computer it is very easy to learn. To volunteer or for more information, please contact the church office at 281-482-7821 or shannon@friendswoodfriends.org. This is a ministry that involves serving the church in a very important way but with a very minimal time commitment! Please pray about whether you might be able to help.
