Meadowood Baptist Church has many ways in which members can participate. We encourage you to pray for these different ministries and become a part of sharing the love, life, and Word of our Lord Jesus Christ by volunteering.

General:

ADVERTISING
Spreading the word about Meadowood's activities is always appreciated. Members can contact the church office to see if there are event fliers and posters available to post in our community. If you know of nearby community bulletin boards, or you have good relations with establishments and business owners near you, please help Meadowood advertise its events.

BEREAVEMENT
The Bereavement Committee prepares funeral meals. Volunteers can (1) provide a telephone number where they can be reached to offer assistance with providing a dessert or side dish, or (2) help with funeral meal preparation. Contact the church office at (405) 737-7684 if you are interested.

GREETERS
Meadowood is always in need of friendly faces to greet our visitors and take the time to help them get settled in to our classes and activities. Please contact the church office at (405) 737-7684 if you are interested.

FOOD SERVICES
"Family Meal" time is Wednesdays during the school year from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Volunteers are welcome to help prepare food, set up, clean up, etc. Meadowood also holds other events where food service volunteers are needed.

PRAYER MINISTRY
Volunteers pray for specific needs listed in a prayer book in the Prayer Room. Contact Patsy Cellier for more information and times that are open in the Prayer Room schedule.

PRAYER WALK
The prayer walk begins before the 9:15 a.m. Bible Study. Members gather to pray over our departments and Sunday activities.

REPAIR NETWORK
Sooner or later everyone needs a "fix-it" person, from an elderly shut-in to a family needing to save money. Simple repairs on cars, appliances, mowers, and homes can be costly if given to a commercial source. Volunteers here can share their time and know-how to provide our church members who are in need with at-cost repairs and money saving options.

SHUTTLE DRIVERS
Due to limited parking, licensed shuttle bus drivers are needed to bring members to and from off-site church parking on Sunday mornings and during special events. Contact the church office.
