Picnic area 3 on the Root River Parkway is reserved for Sunday, June 3 for the Annual Southside Family Picnic.  One or two families or individuals are needed to organize the picnic which involves arriving at the sight early, transporting grills, plates and utensils, beverages, having the grills set up and ready to be used when the picnic begins and cleanup after everybody leaves.  Please see Julie Shuster or Kevin Morrill for details or if you are interested.

An organization in the greater Milwaukee is collecting feminine hygiene products for women in area homeless shelters.  A donation box is in the foyer.

Southside is in need of a historian.

The children’s ministry is in need of teachers, assistants and subs.  A strong and well supported Children’s ministry is vital to the health of any church, so please consider helping.  No previous experience is necessary.  If interested, talk to April Alexander or Ken Koch.  The “Hands on Bible” curriculum has been working well.

Help is needed with leading Children’s Worship. Children ages 3 – 3rd grade are dismissed after communion to enjoy a child-friendly (which mostly means loud with lots of wiggles) worship downstairs. The worship includes singing, prayer, lesson, and application via various games and simple crafts. Each worship is co-lead by a team of 2 adults. Our current curriculum focus is “Super Heroes of the Bible” with several old and new testament figures being represented in the lessons. We currently are using two books and mixing and matching games and activities to suit the age profile of the children. A typical worship involves about 10-15 children. If you would like to help with this serving opportunity, please contact Kevin Morrill.

Volunteer drivers are needed for the non-profit “Muskego Senior Taxi Service” during the week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Please call 262-679-4754 if you are interested. Talk to Jim Nichols about the rewarding experience this service can be.

Cliff Copass is looking for someone to regularly help with the production of the Sunday morning handout every other Sunday.

The first Sunday of every month is designated as the First Sunday, First Fruits food donation program. Members are asked to bring in non-perishable food and personal items to be shared with those who have a need. Donations are accepted anytime. The food pantry is in Room 4.

Volunteers are needed to take turns in helping with the Praise and Palate.  Kitchen work involves heating, cutting (as in cakes, apples or what ever), staging the food and making a fruit mix / lemon aid drink.  Cleaning up entails clearing off & wiping down the tables, bringing leftovers to the kitchen, washing / drying dishes, clearing / cleaning the counter tops and vacuuming the fellowship hall. Additional help would lighten the load for all.  Please see Jim Nichols if you are interested.
