Serving at Wallace

Contact the church office and meet with one of our pastors and find out how your gifts can be used at Wallace.

We have established Communion “teams” to help with baking the bread, setting up the bread and wine before the service, and cleaning up after the service. We are hoping to always have enough teams such that each team only has to serve about twice a year. If you are interested in being on a Communion Team, please contact the church office.

The deacons have an ongoing website with projects that can be worked on at any time during the year, when you have time.

Volunteers are needed to serve on the teams that set up the refreshments we all enjoy after church every Sunday. Teams are assigned one Sunday a month. Set-up takes place primarily during the Sunday School hour and clean-up begins 20-30 minutes after the service is over. It is helpful to have people who can do both parts, but we also welcome people who can just do set-up or just clean-up. To learn more about serving in this capacity, contact Chris Pressau

The Wallace family has faithfully been providing meals for those in our midst who are in need of them. If you would like to receive emails letting you know when a meal is needed, please contact the church office.

If you have attended Wallace at least six months — and raise your hand at every baptism saying you will support the parents as they seek to raise the child in the faith — then please consider stepping up to serve as a greeter or childcare giver for infants to grade 6. See or email Melanie Brockman if you would like more information about the positions. These assignments are only once per month for as long as you can serve.

Please fill out the attached form to let us know how the gifts God has given you can be used in our Wallace community.  Online Service-Talent Bank Assessment
