Here’s to you,
finding your calling,
here at Burks UMC! 
 Hospitality Ministries 
Would you be great at greeting folks as they come in the building on Sunday Mornings?
Would you be willing to hold an umbrella and walk folks in from the parking lot, or wear a hat and greet them there on a cold day? 
Could you help direct curious faces at the hospitality desk? 
Would you be an usher and help friends feel comfortable and welcome inside the sanctuary? 
Would you love to serve at the coffee bar? Or bake fresh goodies to serve there? 
What about the nursery, when we have lots of little ones wanting to play and rock? 
Maybe talking to folks isn’t your thing, but you would write a note to visitors or those in need of prayer and let them know we care. 
Are you good at technology? Would you like to serve as a volunteer on the Burks Media Team and rotate through services monthly working in the sound/projection booth? 
All of these opportunities and more exist for you at Burks UMC!
