Saturday Snapshot — We Love Our Volunteers!

We don’t know what we would do without the help of our faithful volunteers here at The Cove.  From administrative tasks, to Chapel tour guides, to helping with seating at our events, they serve with smiles and generous hearts for this ministry.

We currently have 142 volunteers serving at The Cove, and they logged 16,428 hours in 2016.  That’s like one person working 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, for two entire years!

Yes, we are blessed!

Every year, we celebrate our volunteers at the Cove Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon.  Take a peek at the fun afternoon this past weekend:


As volunteers emerged from the shuttles they were greeted with a red carpet and cheering fans!
