A NEW PLAN FOR SET UP TEAMS

As you know Church of the Outer Banks is a “guest” church at the Nags Head YMCA. As such, it is necessary for us to ‘set up’ and ‘break down’ our church every Sunday. Our vision is to have this happen as seamlessly as possible, such that by the time our church members and visitors arrive for worship each week our ‘WELCOME’ mat is layed out.

This is only accomplished through the work of volunteers who are willing to arrive early, and others who are able to stay a little longer. And many hands make light work.

To that end we’re re-thinking our set up teams. We’d like to have 4 teams instead of 2. This way, the commitment for team members is lighter, only once a month.

This is not limited to the men. Ladies and Youth are also welcome to help with this needed service. Please consider giving a small measure of your time to help our church be ready and welcoming for our own members and all our visitors to worship. Please contact Joey at fr.fitz@yahoo.com

YOU CAN BE A SPECIAL BLESSING...

Church friends--By now you all know of the stroke that hit Roy Murray on June 15th. Over the past three weeks he has progressed well, and is now back on the Outer Banks, at the Peaks Rehab Center in Nags Head. 430 Health Center Dr, Nags Head, NC 27959 (Health Center Drive is the west end of Barnes Street.)

Roy is available for visitors, and, in fact, that would be a big blessing to him. Social interaction after a stroke is very important to recovery. Communication after a stroke can be challenging, so plans for a short visit works well. Roy is very happy to see people.

Your gift of time, in a visit, would be an encouragement to Roy and his family.

If you'd like to visit it is not necessary to make an appointment ahead of time. Just drop on by. Roy is in Room 206.

We’ll meet at the Gathering Space, at the church office.

See you there.

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED

Our kids need you! We are asking for volunteers to lead our Pre-K, grades K-1, and grades 2-3 small groups during our kids church. Leaders would only need to serve one Sunday a month, but the more teachers on rotation, the less frequently you have to serve. Come hang out with the sweetest groups of students as they grow in their faith!  Contact Joana Houff at joanaphouff@gmail.com for more information or to volunteer.

NURSERY HELPERS NEEDED

Please consider helping in the nursery one Sunday a month, or even once a quarter. Our precious little ones need more people to care for them and play with them on Sunday mornings.

If you are able to help please email Christine Schleiden at cschleiden@gmail.com

SUNDAY MORNING SET UP TEAMS

SET UP TEAMS

Worship at the YMCA is always wonderful... And it happens seamlessly because of our wonderful volunteers. These folks  give a bit of their time to show up a little early to get the gym set up Please consider  helping us on Sunday Morning.  The current commitment is two Sundays on, two off, and it's a great way to serve.  Please see Nelson Pendleton (william_pendleton@nps.gov) or Trahey Maner (enlessumr@hotmail.com) or Pastor Joey.
