SUBSTITUTE DRIVERS are needed for our Meals on Wheels routes. Our rotation is usually the 3rd week of the month, and routes are mostly in the east end/downtown of Belleville.

If you are interested, call Janet in the church office, 233-6320, or Frank Rogers, 277-1406.
LECTORS/CHALICE BEARERS NEEDED FOR BOTH SERVICES. Due to transfers and transitions in the lives of some of our group, there is now a shortage of lectors & chalice bearers at both services. We invite anyone interested in these ministries to contact Cindy Lynk or Fr. Dale. You don’t need experience, as we will have training in late September.
