Central United Methodist Church of Decatur AL
Serve in the Church
There are many opportunities to serve right inside Central UMC. If you wish to serve, please contact the name of the person in charge of that group.

 

Share a smile

It seems to be a disappointment that there have not been bright sunshiny faces greeting us lately as we come into church. We have many smiling happy faces at Central and it is a sin to waste them when we could be making someone else smile and feel welcome. Remember the first time you visited a new church? Smiling greeters do make a difference!

Three greeters are needed each Sunday for 20 minutes before Sunday School (9:10) and three more for 20 minutes before 10:30 service (10:10) to greet at the fountain area, the doors across from the Coffee Nook, and the Grant St. doors. The 8:30 service is already covered.

We are the church. If you are willing to help, baskets will be placed in the Narthex and Coffee Nook to provide your name, phone number, and time preferred, or contact Mark Haines at 256-353-6941 or Mary Jo Landreth at 256-303-1249; we will schedule the time and location. Gianna will send an email the first of the week to remind you of your time commitment, and a copy of the schedule will be posted in the Coffee Nook.
 

*Receptionists needed: We are always in need of receptionists, morning or afternoon, Monday - Friday. Please contact Gianna in the office if you are able and willing to serve in this capacity. We will train you!
