How do I volunteer with facilities?

The facilities team uses their gifts to keep the church building maintained and the facilities up-to-date. This team meets periodically to do a walk-thru of the building, and makes recommendations for repairs and maintenance . You don't have to be a church member, and no special skills are required. Just a willingness to get involved and serve alongside of others.
