Every Sunday, after Divine Liturgy, we have the “liturgy after the Liturgy” by sharing an Agape Meal together in the Church Hall.
Naturally, a lot of work goes into preparing, making, and cleaning up from this essential and soul-building experience. To streamline the operations of this endeavor, we’ve set up a few volunteer roles, outlined below, that clarify ways families and individuals can participate.
Find the sign-up sheet at this link:
The Master of Ceremonies (for lack of a better word) is an individual who will oversee the cleaning of the Hall and grounds, as well as ensure everything is locked up and ready for the week once everyone has departed.
Time Commitment: ~11:30 am – 2 or 3 pm.
Duties: when the meal has begun wrapping up, around 1 pm.
- Encourage all to bus their tables and put their chairs away. Lead willing individuals and older kids in bussing and chair stacking for those remaining.
- Lead a group of older kids and parents around the grounds to ensure all debris and refuse are collected and trashed.
- Lead a group of individuals and older kids to wipe down the tables.
- Lead a group of individuals and older kids to sweep the Hall.
- Lead a group of individuals and older kids to mop the Hall.
- Tidy any remaining errata and complete any remaining cleaning yourself.
- Lock up the building.
Two Kitchen Clean Families
While the amount of work is somewhat more, the timeframe can be a discrete hour to an hour and a half.
Time Commitment: 11:30 am – 1 pm, depending on when you start. Generally, this chunk of work takes a group of four people about an hour and a half.
Duties: (beginning as soon as you’d like after the food is served)
- Wash and put away all the preparation and serving dishes
- Wash out all the sinks and food preparation surfaces
- Put away any leftover food and ingredients
- Remove all trash and recycling
- Sweep and mop the kitchen.
We’re totally open to suggestions as to better ways of arranging this work. Please speak with Nikki Baklinski or Taylor Black if you have insights, questions or concerns.
