Ministry Opportunity: POWERHOUSE Student Ministries is in need of servers on Thursdays, at lunch time, with Release Time Bible Class with the Big Rapids Middle School students. You could help serve food, make food, interact with students, pray for students, help lead Bible study time, and more. We see 30-40 students every Thursday during lunch. This is a great opportunity to plant seeds of the Gospel in students’ lives during their school day! If you are interested or have questions, please call the office and ask for Trevor or Andrew.
Cookie Dough Maker Needed ASAP: We are in need of one or two individuals who would be willing to learn how to make the cookie dough for the cookies that we have each week.

The baking is done by another volunteer on Friday or Saturday. Kitchen training will be provided. For more information, contact the church office ASAP. (If you are already kitchen approved and can help one or two weeks in May or June, that would be helpful.)
