Help with Memorial Reception
It is a practice of Orangewood to provide the families who have lost loved ones with a memorial reception at Orangewood. If you are good at making cookies, or trays of finger foods, we can use your help You don’t have to attend the reception; just drop off your goodies. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Hedy Martin, or firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a much needed service that we provide to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Want an easy job on Sundays?
Become a scribe for the pastor! This is probably the easiest job there is. You get to stand next to Pastor Ken after the service for about 20 minutes and take notes for him. He will let you know if he needs you to write something down. Those of us who have done this in the past find that most Sundays there's nothing to write and you get to talk to the folks leaving the church. Many hands make light work, so if you're interested, talk to Becky Cederquist (623-363-4509). We'll work out a schedule that fits you.
