Everyone can help keep Gary Church beautiful!
Please consider becoming a trustee volunteer as we have plenty of “handyman” work-day projects ready to go. We are also planning or considering many “non-critical” projects that need additional funding (i.e. interior carpeting, kitchen upgrades, cosmetic projects, etc). Volunteers need not be mechanically inclined—just engaged and passionate about doing good work for the church. Additionally, we are always looking for new Trustee Committee members who are interested in serving our congregation and keeping the church looking great. Please prayerfully consider volunteering or becoming a Trustee today!
