  • pick up larger items with their vehicles and deliver to the church
  • move larger items throughout the church as we receive deliveries
  • assemble furniture
  • create a user list to help GTC groups maintain the space better

Sound & Worship
Our sound team requires individuals with an ability to learn technical set-ups quickly and can manage the various elements of our sound system. To be a part of our worship team, we ask interested individuals to partake in an audition with our worship director, as we are often looking for particular musicians or sounds for our worship teams.
