Ministry Teams - DSM First Church

Ministry Teams

At First Church we use Ministry Teams to accomplish our work. Many of these are short term so members are not obligating themselves to long committee terms.

Here is a list of our current ministry teams. If you are interested in joining any of them, contact Christine, Minister of Discipleship.

Sunday Morning Usher Corps

Assisting members in finding comfortable seating, assuring availability of Bible, bulletins and hymnals, and offering hospitality and help as needed, the corps of ushers helps members, guests and visitors before and after the service.

Sunday Greeter

Welcome members and visitors at the north doors or in the narthex. Two people are assigned to a team. Three to four Sundays a year.

Altar Guild

Assist with changing the altar cloths and paraments when the seasons of the year change.

Communion Servers

Assist with the preparation of the bread and cup for communion and the clean up after communion.
