Church Cleaning Ministry
Help keep River Springs Church looking shiny and new by joining our Cleaning Team! It may not be the most glorious of jobs, but it’s a necessary one, and we appreciate each volunteer that takes the time to keep our building clean.  The cleaning team fulfills a crucial role as a part of the mission of River Springs Church: helping people experience life to its fullest in Christ. The church is designed to be a volunteer organization, for the most part. The power of the is when men and women, young and old, offer their gifts to work out God’s redemptive plan. It's true. The power of the church lies within you finding your place to serve and contribute to the mission. When we serve the Lord with the gifts He’s given us; we can accomplish all that God has called us to. We have many areas to keep clean in our church building – preschools, classrooms, nursery, lobby, bathrooms, refreshment area, kitchen, and sanctuary. It takes many hands and feet to maintain the cleanliness both as the building is used for service, classes, public meetings, projects, ministry and events and a regular with overall maintenance cleaning. The Beacon Church cleans in the last two weeks of each month, and River Springs Church will be cleaning in the first two weeks of the month. We invite everyone to consider being part of the Cleaning Team! You can pick one or two months out of the year to help. You can serve every month when scheduled. You can make sure you clean up after your ministry event, your building use and after yourself before you leave on Sunday. All ages are welcome and can be volunteers keeping the building looking its best! We need more volunteers. If you need more information on being a cleaning volunteer, please reply to this email.
