SERVE

Counting Team

Join the Velda Rose CountingTeam.  As a volunteer on this team, you will play a very important role in helping safeguard and prepare the deposits for the Worship Tithes and Offerings. Let us know your interest contact us
 

Tinkers Team

We are looking to start a Tinkers Team to help with various projects around the church. If you are skilled in carpentry, plumbing, electric, or can just be a helping hand, contact us
 

Coffee Host

Consider this an invitation to provide hospitality and a wake-up of coffee and cookies to those in worship on Sunday mornings.  Our coffee host team does the set-up and clean-up of our coffee stations on the patio or in the Library when the weather doesn’t cooperate!  No brewing experience is necessary!

It’s a great opportunity to share fellowship with others.

If you’re interested in joining this team or getting more information, please contact us

Worship Committee

If you enjoy playing a role “behind the scenes” join our Worship Committee team.  Members of this team have the joy of preparing the Worship spaces for each Sunday, preparing for Communion, and special decorations and flowers.  There is great joy in knowing your service helps create an environment for others to connect with God. 

Team members can serve every week, once a month or can set up a regular schedule for their convenience.  Tasks include refilling information areas, pencil sharpening, as well as helping for special Sundays.  These tasks can be done during the week and take one to two hours.

If you’re interested in joining this team or getting more information, please contact us

 

Music Ministry

Whether you are singing in worship, community, or prayer, music enriches our lives with its art. “When you sing, you pray twice.” – commonly attributed to St. Augustine.

The Chancel Choir is the main adult choir of Velda Rose United Methodist Church, singing on Sundays during the 9:30 am service for worship and at festival services. The Choir practices 6:00 pm Wednesdays September thru May. 

The Canterbury Handbell Choir is a regular feature of the Sunday Traditional worship service. They too, practice Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.
The casual Holy Grounds service at 8:00 pm features contemporary music of praise. 

Do you play an instrument? Throughout the year soloists, small ensembles, even a full orchestra at the annual Christmas Cantata perform. 
If you want to share your talent and add to the deep tradition of music in the United Methodist Church, contact our Director of Music, Dr. Jim Yancy.  

Communion Servers/Home Visitation

Are you a people person? Would you like to help keep our homebound folks connected to Velda Rose?
Here are two ways:

 Home visitation: You will be given the name of someone who would benefit from a short,
occasional visit in their home. You can bring them bulletins and news from church, share
stories, pray with them. The visits don’t have to be long.

 Communion: Some folks are enjoying taking Holy Communion out to one or two homebound once per month. You will be given a basket with the elements, along with a booklet to follow.

Rev. Pam Wagner will be glad to talk to you and train you for either service. You can contact her at the church office at 480-832-2111.
