There are so many mission opportunities right here in our community, and one great opportunity that we have each year is the Cumming Fair. This year, the fair will be from October 3 to 13. At least 5 volunteers from each Connect Group are needed for each time slot at the fair. Several volunteers can work at the crafts table as kids wait in line to get their faces painted. Several volunteers can also do community/prayer surveys that will allow us to interact with families as they wait in line. One volunteer will need to help the face painters with line monitoring. Also, all volunteers will have the chance to serve our valuable face painting team, helping them with set-up and tear-down as needed. As you interact with people and serve families, you will have opportunities to talk about Christ and invite them to FBC.
If your or your Connect Group or family would like to volunteer, please click HERE.
