Norman Kitchen Group/Usher Group Merge

In an effort to make things more streamlined, we are merging the kitchen groups with the usher groups starting in January 2017. Each work group will be responsible for finding volunteers from their workgroup to fill the usher scheduled and be in charge of the usher duties for four months of the year. Families will not be assigned a certain month like in the past, but you will have the freedom to choose when you serve from any of the four months your work groups is assigned. Every member of our church will be accounted for in a work group.

2017 Work Group Schedule
Group 1 - January, April, July, October
Group 2 - February, May, August, November
Group 3 - March, June September, December

Your chair will post a signup sheet in the information center at church and email a signup genius in December so you can choose the dates and duties you'd like to help with in the church year. Each family should plan to serve a minimum of two Sundays a year.

These months will rotate between work groups every year.

Your work group is responsible for serving any events that happen during your month including funerals, graduation dinner, annual meeting lunch, confirmation meal.

Work groups will still rotate and work together to share duties for our "big events" at church including ice cream social, play and Christmas program meal.

The group that ushers in December will set-up/take down the Christmas decorations.

If you have any questions regarding this new setup, please contact your workgroup chairperson, Jen Swenson or Pastor Laura.
