Opportunities within the Church

Worship Assistants

Early Service Worship Assistants Needed 

Greeters/ushers/liturgists are needed for the Early Service.  Please contact Penny Endsley if you are interested or need more information about the duties. We would like to have enough volunteers so that everyone only needs to be available once every 2-3 months.


Late Service Worship Assistants Needed

If you are new to the church or are not familiar with what these jobs entail, but would like more information, please feel free to contact Claire Grant at 903-676-6135.  These jobs do not require a lot of effort or training, but will enhance your worship, by getting to know other church members.


Each worship service needs assistants.  You can serve as a greeter or usher, or assist with preparing Communion.  Members serve as liturgists in each service.

Communion Preparation


If you are interested in serving in one or more of the areas listed above, please contact the church office to be added to the rotation list.

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is served in our church on the first Sunday of each month.  We have special Communion Services on Maundy Thursday, during Holy week, and on World Communion Sunday-the first Sunday in October.  The final Communion service of the year is at the late service on Christmas Eve.  There are specific instructions to assist you with preparing Communion.  If you choose to serve in this way, please contact the church office 903-675-3530.


Please see the Music page for descriptions of musical opportunities in our church.

Office Volunteers

There are many jobs in and around the church for those so inclined. Our church secretary can find a job that matches your skills with our needs.  Some volunteers greet visitors, answer the phone, and take messages; some collate the newsletters for mailing; some fold the bulletins for Sunday services; some send cards to church members for birthday wishes or get well wishes; and still others complete large copy jobs and mailings for the church. You can come as often as weekly for a few hours, or periodically when needed.

Sally Soup Ministry

This ministry provides meals to those who are recovering from illness or hospital stays, coming home from having a baby, those who are grieving and those in special circumstances.  We serve members of our church, and others in the community.  A group of volunteers, men and women, meet on the first Wednesday of each month, during the school year, to taste and discuss the soup that will be made that month, and receive the ingredients to prepare the soup.  After a devotional, the “Host/Hostess” for the month shares the soup of the month with the other members.  The chefs then leave the church with the ingredients and containers, then return at a later time with the prepared meal ready for the freezer. 


Church members provide desserts and casseroles to be used in the summer months.  There is another group of volunteers that deliver the meals to the families. 


Perfect attendance is not required, but most people want to attend monthly to share ideas and successes of the ministry. If you know of someone in need of a tasty meal, just call the church office and arrangements can be made for delivery.
