Easter Egg Hunt

I have an important church artifact in my office: the 2020 EUCC Worship Participants List. People signed up to be Scripture Readers and Fellowship Ambassadors. Sundays in January, February and the first week of March were crossed off because they had completed their duties. Then it stops even though the rest of the next few months are filled. 
We are returning to the SignUp Sheet tradition. Starting April 2nd, you can sign up to be a Greeter, Welcome/Announcement person, or Scripture Reader. The Greeter needs to be on duty by 10:10.  (Yes, regulars arrive later but how is a visitor to know that no one arrives until 10:25?) The Welcome/Announcement person will need to be in place by 10:30 waiting for the “ready to begin” sign from Fiona Groth. (It’s the sign for “touchdown.”) The scripture reader will be listed at the appropriate place in the order of worship.
Both the Welcome person and Scripture Reader will receive their portions of the service via e-mail on the preceding Thursday.
In this time in the life of the church, all traditions return with a new feature: you can sign-up online. Here is the link:

The return of the sign-up sheet was one of the suggestions received from our Focus Group discussions. Participants make a difference in how the congregation is perceived both by visitors and online guests. Plus, your friends who sit in the pews every week want to see your “bright, shiny faces” as well.
