Conference Communion Volunteers

Saturday, February 18th 2012 4:53 PM

The 2012 Communion Committee desires your help and involvement in assisting with the feet washing and supper duties at our upcoming National Conference Communion.

We are asking the Ohio districts to supply 10 Brethren. At this time we are not asking for a specific number of volunteers from congregations outside of Ohio, however, we anticipate needing other volunteers.

If you would like to help at the communion, please get your name to your district contact person so they can forward it to us by March 12, 2012.

Grace and peace,
The Communion Committee
