Director of Music & Worship

Grace Lutheran Church in Corvallis, OR, seeks a qualified person to direct choirs, vocalists, & instrumentalists; coach audio-visual operators; & help plan & coordinate contemporary & traditional worship services. Email  office@grace97330.org to request a complete description of this part-time paid position.

[i] Grace Lutheran Church is in charge of the Women’s Cold Weather Shelter from March 8 to 14.

We will need people to staff the shelter from 6:30 to 11 and from 11 to 7 AM.

Please look prayerfully, long and hard at your schedule to see if you can be a part of this ministry to those who do not have all the blessing with which you have been endowed.

If you can’t do it, maybe you can recruit someone else, over the age of 18, to cover a shift?

There will be a training for the shelter for those who are signed up and those just curious. Come see what it’s all about.

Also be aware that the snack schedule is very different this year. A red sheet by the sign up explains the differences.

The point people are Kathy Vohland 541-738-0390 email: kathyvohland@gmail.com  and Jaya Lapham: 541-264-9311, email: jayalapham@hotmail.com .
