A Sense of Purpose

“We’ve had the privilege of organizing members who want to volunteer for the Annual Meeting since 2013. Volunteering provides a sense of purpose and gives EOHSJ members an opportunity to join in service for a successful Annual Meeting. Volunteering fosters community, spiritual engagement, social connections, self-satisfaction and fond memories.”

Investee and Promotee Retreats

Investee and Promotee retreats provide volunteers time to rekindle and deepen their relationship with God through service. Volunteers will assist the Retreat Master and Retreat Team in a variety of ways such as setting up and breaking down the venue, serving dinner, cleaning up, and assuring the venue is left as it was found. There is also a possibility of assistance needed during the retreat program as well. Volunteering and serving at these retreats can be a four- or five-hour commitment.

Ministry Fair Set-up

The Ministry Fair team needs about 5-8 volunteers to help with the setting up and taking down of the Ministry Fair tables and banners.  We need able bodied helpers who can help move small boxes around, set up banners, distribute flyers and pamphlets to the various MF tables for the setup on Thursday morning.  We need help again on Saturday afternoon to collect all the flyers and pamphlets from the MF tables, take down the banners, and then box things up to put in storage.
