Job Postings Coming Soon
The church council has delegated the work of drawing up job postings to the personnel committee to fill several roles on staff.  Though nothing is finalized yet, the staff has identified these immediate needs: Worship Support, Communications, Community/volunteerism, Administrative, Technology, and Children’s Education. At this time, it is anticipated that we will be filling these needs with two staff people. Please pray that God will lead us to the people with the right gifts.

Sound/Video Booth Volunteers Urgently Needed
We urgently need additional volunteers to work in the Sound Booth. Please contact Pastor Steve if you would be willing to discuss this.  No commitments required at this point, we would just like to give you a tour of the booth so that you can see how easy it is!

Head Ushers Needed
In order for us to begin worshipping in the sanctuary again, one critical need will be four persons who are each willing to take on one Sunday a month (and a fifth Sunday once per quarter) who will oversee a team of dedicated volunteers.  We thank Layne Danielson for his faithful service in lining up worship volunteers in the past. Layne has recently informed us that he is stepping down from this role as we transition back into the sanctuary. Because of additional procedures related to COVID, every Sunday we meet in the sanctuary we will need a trained group of worship volunteers. We will build four teams around the four head Ushers who also agree to serve once a month.

Changes Made to the Smart Plan
Currently, Lord of Life is in phase 1 of is SMART plan. At a recent meeting, our SMART team made the following allowances:  Meetings outside the building (normally on the patio) may be held under the following circumstances: (1) They are scheduled in Church Community Builder; (2) All participants agree to wear a mask; (3) Groups will not be greater than 10 in number; and (4) Members maintain social distancing from those not in their household at all time (EX: 2 persons per picnic table at opposite corners). The entire SMART plan in its current version can be found on the Lord of Life website.

We are understaffed at this time.
This may result in temporary interruptions of things that you have come to expect from us. Worship slides, Birthday/Anniversary lists and prayerLIFE@12:45 videos are three examples.  As time goes on, there may be more.  We regret when those interruptions occur and together we look forward to the day when the staff will be able to consistently provide them again.  In the meanwhile, we thank you for your patience and understanding.
