+ SUNDAY SCHOOL DISCUSSION
Please plan to join us on THIS Sunday at 9:30am for a discussion about the future of Sunday School at Church of the Holy Apostles. We’ll be meeting on the lawn under the tent. We want to hear from you about the ways in which we can best serve you and your children with our Children’s Education Ministry. Options include: Sunday School held after the 9am Family Service; a return to Sunday School during the 10am service; or staying with the current 9am Family service under the tent. We’d love to hear any other ideas you might have.

+ VOLUNTEER SIGN UPS
We want to make volunteering at Church of the Holy Apostles as easy as possible so we have created a place to find all our volunteer openings in one place: https://tinyurl.com/chasignupgenius

There you can sign up for service areas such as Chalice Bearer/Acolyte, Coffee Hour, Fellowship Events, Greeters, Livestream, Outreach Events, and Readers/Intercessors. Special event items will also be listed from time to time.

Just choose the tab for the ministry of your choice. Click on over and check it out! . Questions? Click on the email link at the top of any signup page to contact the coordinator for that area of service.

We are especially in need of folks to assist with Coffee Hour and to be Greeters and Chalice Bearers! If you have questions about these positions, contact Judy Jervis (coffee hour); Linda Day (greeters); or Father James (chalice bearers).

And if you want to help but really don’t want to deal with online stuff – just contact the ministry coordinator directly, or reach out to Katie (610-642-6617) in the office and she’ll get you set up!
