Your Time / Talents
Giving of your time and talents is just as – if not more – important than giving financially. What talents do you possess? Do you see an area below where you and/or your family could become involved? Feel free to contact the name and number listed under each ministry opportunity. If you already know what area(s) of ministry sound fun, you are welcome to download the Ministries PDF document, fill it out, and mail it back to Son Life. We look forward to serving with you!
