Heavenly Dusters 

The Heavenly Dusters are a group of volunteers who clean the church and chapel on Friday’s to prepare for the weekend services.  There are four teams of “Dusters” so the commitment is just one Friday a month for an hour or two in the morning. The cleaning involves primarily dusting, no heavy lifting is needed.  Volunteers are always needed for the teams.
