Church services, coffee hours, and beautiful flowers don't just happen. It takes a community of servants working, often times behind the scenes, to put all the parts together and make it all happen. Come, join us. It's also a wonderful way to meet new people, serving the Lord together. Colossians 3:23-24
There are many ways to serve here at St. Laurence and there's always a spot for someone new. Take a look and see where you'd like to serve. It's a great way to get involved and make friends along the way.
