using our gifts wisely

As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.
— John 9:4
 

action teams

WANT TO GET MORE INVOLVED BUT SHORT ON TIME? JOIN an action team!

We are a busy and growing parish which means that projects pop up from time-to-time that require short-term involvement from our parishioners. Currently we’re in need of expertise for the following groups.

Stewardship team

We launched a new giving campaign last September and want to ensure its success for the good our parish. If you have a finance or non-profit fundraising background, your thoughts on what’s working and how we can grow our campaign would be of great help!

Faith for Special Needs Families

We want to share the Word with everyone, but realize that some families have a more difficult time at church than others. SFDS has helped many families in the past to grow in their faith and we want to do more outreach in this area. Let us know if you’d like to be a part of the conversation about how we can make SFDS as accessible as possible to families and invididuals who may need a little help in taking full advantage of God’s gift in our church.

event planning team

If you hadn’t noticed, we’ve been working hard to fill our calendar with new & exciting faith-centered activities. With so much new buzz, we’re in need of a hospitality team to help us envision and run our events, adding that unique SFDS vibe. This is a great opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes organizational and leadership skills related to event planning and hospitality.
