Each week, these teams work in concert to prepare the YMCA for worship. Not only do they serve God but this is a great way to connect with others! These teams are “on duty” once every 3 weeks. Breakfast provided! The teams are:
This team meets at 8:30am. They move the equipment from a 40′ container located in the back of the YMCA and set it up. This takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. At the conclusion of the service, they tear it down and put it back in the container. This takes approximately 45 minutes.
