  • Middle grade teachers for Sunday School.
  • Youth group helpers for Sunday night youth group or special events.
  • Serve on the Men’s, Women’s, or any one of our many ministry teams.
  • Serve on the Helps Ministry team if you are handy.
  • Help prepare communion one month a year.
  • Help prepare coffee one week a month.
  • Help prepare meals for Wednesday Night Connect.

New Landscaping: We want to let you know that YCC is getting a facelift! A landscaping company has offered to do the job, free of charge, and we are taking them up on their offer. Watch for changes coming soon.
