This might be your reaction when you hear that AHCC is requesting volunteers to fill out the church’s many committees, subcommittees, and working groups for the upcoming year, which starts July 1, 2022.
If this is the question on your mind, my answer is: “Yes, you!”
We all know and very much appreciate AHCC’s wonderful and dedicated staff and clergy team, who work tirelessly day in and day out.
But did you also know that AHCC has well over 100 volunteers who make up the church’s numerous committees, subcommittees, and working groups? Yes, you read that right – well over 100 volunteers who currently serve as a member of one of the groups that help make this church thrive in every facet of its work. That is a huge number of people, and we need every single one to help carry out the faith-filled work of this church.
AHCC’s committee, subcommittee, and working group participants include some of our newest church members and some of our most long-standing members; they include young members and retired members; they include members who live around the corner from the church and those who live in another state; they include members who have a specific skill to offer and those who just want to pitch in in any way they can; they include members with lots of time to share and those with limited time; they include members at all different points along their faith journey.
In other words, AHCC’s committee, subcommittee, and working group participants are widely varied and diverse, and yet they all answered the call to join in to help play a part in the work of AHCC. I have heard so many people say, and I wholeheartedly agree, that getting more involved at AHCC is a truly wonderful and meaningful way to deepen your faith and your relationship with the church and other members, while giving back to the church and the wider community in ways that speak to you.
Will you please join in? Will you say “yes, me!” to helping AHCC move forward with the key components of the AHCC 2024 Roadmap — engaging and nurturing this church community, pursuing justice, and expanding our impact? I hope you will!
And if you are a friend of AHCC, but have not become a church member, we welcome your participation, too. There are definitely roles for you, and we invite you to find out more.
For all who want to learn about opportunities to get more involved at AHCC, please contact Mary Way at the church office, firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will connect you to the appropriate people to get you the information you need. Thank you!
