Event to Assist Area Churches with Volunteer Ministries
Raleigh, NC – Hope Community Church of Raleigh will host its first XTEND Volunteer Workshop Saturday, April 26, from 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm. at the church located at 821 Buck Jones Road in southwest Raleigh.
The First Impressions Ministry of Hope will sponsor and lead the workshop offered to area churches for the purpose of helping to identify, invite, motivate and train volunteers within their ministries. The workshop is specifically aimed at church leaders who have been given the responsibility of leading volunteers in the hosting and welcoming of guests to their weekend services. First Impressions Director Mary Ann Sibley explains, “We are extending ourselves to local churches to help them extend themselves successfully within their churches and communities.”
Breakout sessions include I Got Out of Bed for This? – Why we do what we do, and No Budget, No Talent, No Problem – How we do what we do. Attendees will also have the option of learning about the KidCity Ministries of Hope by attending a KidCity Saturday night service, or attending one of Hope’s Saturday night services instead. Dinner will be served and will include a Q&A time with Hope’s First Impressions Team Leaders.
The cost of the 1-day workshop is $25 per person, $20 per person for groups of five to ten, or $15 per person for groups of 10 or more. Cost includes dinner and a snack break.
