For each of the ministries below, please indicate each area you might be interested in serving. If you are not interested in a particular area at all, please check that box.
Finance, Building, Furnishings and Grounds (FBFG)
Good with a paint brush or a shovel? Maybe you have time to change lightbulbs or set up chairs and tables. Our meetinghouse always needs loving care. If you are a contract manager, we can use that skill too—as we engage contractors to perform tasks our volunteers can’t complete. Perhaps you are better at spreadsheets than screwdrivers—we have a dedicated finance team that helps properly steward congregational resources. Rafael Barillas leads this ministry group assisted by our treasurer, Karen Brunner. Lloyd Randolph is the liaison elder. You can reach them at FBFGMinGroup@arlingtonfamily.org.
Adult Education, Technology and Worship (AETW)
Are you a student of the word-and willing to share your knowledge? Our adult classes rotate on a quarterly basis and we need teachers willing to teach a quarter every year or two. Are you a singer or reader? Our worship team needs your talents. Perhaps you prefer to work behind the scenes preparing communion, managing our sound systems and maintaining our computer networks. Janet Bowers and Scott Brunner lead this ministry group. Robert Younger is our liaison elder. You can reach them at AETWMinGroup@arlingtonfamily.org
Outreach, Benevolence and Communication (OBC)
Do you have a heart for missions? Maybe join a mission team—or just write to our missionaries to encourage them. How about feeding the homeless one Saturday a month? Or collecting coats for them in the fall? Are you an encourager and want to make the body feel more connected? Our outreach, benevolence and communication team needs you. How about graphic design or website management? We want Christ’s light to shine through all our communications. Robert Burgess leads this ministry group. Dennis Hlasta is the liaison elder. You can reach them at OBCMinGroup@arlingtonfamily.org
Professional Staff, Law and Security (PSLS)
We have a wonderful and dedicated staff—but they need your help to make their ministries successful. Do you have a heart for children? Linda Hlasta, our children’s minister, needs you to teach or prepare materials. Could you fill in when our office administrator is sick or needs a vacation? Do you have a heart for preaching? Could you fill in for Chess or Oscar when they are sick or on vacation? Do you have the training and availability to provide legal advice or to assist with congregational security? This ministry group needs those talents as well. Stuart Platt is the liaison elder overseeing our staff and their work. You can reach this team at PSLSMinGroup@arlingtonfamily.org.
