Adults or families are needed to prepare coffee and juice before the masses and to serve the refreshments with a pleasant smile and cleaning up with a helpful attitude.

Training is necessary before initial commitment.  Scheduling is on a rotation basis from September to May.  Contact Deb Faraci if you are interested in this ministry.
