As we begin a new congregational year, there are several core leadership positions that are open! We hope that you’ll consider whether one of these roles might be your next step in service at WES and in your own growth. (And of course there are many more teams welcoming new members–you can see a list of several of them at the end of this email)

Coming of Age Volunteer
Are you interested in getting to know our youth? Do you carry expertise in parenting, identity formation, or relationship building?
We invite you to consider applying for one of two Coming of Age volunteer positions for this coming year, September-June. COA volunteers will help facilitate parent or teen programming in conjunction with Sarah Henry, COA and Teen Group Coordinator for all or most of 6 weekend retreats. This will be a great way to help our families transition from child/parent relationship to young adult/parent relationship while also providing the volunteers deeper relationships within WES. Contact Melissa, Director of Lifelong Learning (email@example.com
), if you are interested in applying, and please include information about your background (whether professional, volunteer, or life experience) and your interest in working with our teens and their parents.
Pastoral Care Associate
Do you want to deepen your connection to the WES community? Do you enjoy building relationships, and do you want to increase your skills in active listening, coordination of care, and resource building?
WES is served by a team of Pastoral Care Associates, members trained to provide support and care to those experiencing a crisis or special need. They work with Amanda to answer individual needs, and to serve the community as a whole by bringing programs like CPR training and grief workshops. If you are interested in serving WES in this way, please contact Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org
for information on how to apply. WES will be hosting a regional training for Pastoral Care Associates in late September, so those interested are encouraged to be in touch as soon as possible.
And, don’t forget that our other teams are always looking for new members. If you’re interested in any of the following positions, please email Amanda (email@example.com ).
