Membership – Volunteer Opportunities

Are you a new member and do you want to find an easy way to get to know other members of the Society? BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR A SUNDAY HOSPITALITY TEAM!

We need greeters, ushers, coffee and tea servers, and Welcome Table staffers. If you are able to commit to one Sunday and one service per month you can join a team that connects with congregants and visitors. Be of service, connect and have fun!


This wonderful group of people, works together to plan fun and social events for the benefit of our Society. We also make efforts to recognize our members and to make everyone feel a part of our vibrant community.
