Volunteers Needed for "Art in the Park"

Art in the Park needs volunteers on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3!  

Former COK members and current member Stephanie Jenkins are involved with the Columbia Art League (CAL) which promotes artists and offers art classes in downtown Columbia.  Art in the Park is CAL's biggest fundraiser for the year and is totally staffed by volunteers.  It is a great opportunity to serve the arts community and meet the people of Columbia who come to enjoy the event.  For more information about the event, click here.

Stephanie has been on the steering committee for the event and works closely with the Education Director Patty.  Volunteers are still needed for Saturday afternoon in the Kid's Art Areas (which Stephanie will be supervising all weekend) and pretty much all day Sunday.  A big need on Sunday is helping get the artists packed up and moved out of the park.  This job is called 'load out' and wouldn't conflict with church activities because it is from 3:30 to 7:30 PM.  Emily Smith has done that job before and says it is a bunch of fun to help because you will probably get to drive a golf cart!!  Anyways, if you have any time to spare and don't mind getting a little sweaty, fill out the volunteer form and sign up here.  If you want to specifically work with another person in our church or in the kid's area, please be sure to note that in the comments section or the volunteer coordinators will put you where they need you instead.  (For the Kid's Art Areas put that you need to work for Patty and Stephanie).  Please call or email Stephanie with any questions-- 678-665-1797  or stephaniecjenkins@gmail.com.  

Thanks for considering serving our community in this way.

Details for Pastor LeCroy's Installation Service

A commission of Missouri Presbytery will install Rev. Timothy R. LeCroy, PhD as pastor of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church on Sunday May 27, 2012.

The service will be held at our normal worship location, Columbia Seventh Day Adventist at 1100 College Park Drive in Columbia, MO. The service will begin at 4:00PM.

Following the service there will be a celebration of this event. The celebration will be held at Oakland Park, located at 1900 Blue Ridge Rd. at the Albert-Oakland shelter #3. The meal will be picnic style, with the church providing the meat, buns, condiments, and utensils. Pastor LeCroy will be providing his very own beer that he made especially for the occasion. Congregants are asked to bring a side item and a dessert. Please bring more than you and your family could eat yourself, as we need to provide for several visitors.

Furthermore, congregants are asked to bring any lawn games you may have, such as bocce, washers, horseshoes, bag toss, badminton, volley ball, etc. Additionally, congregants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs for general hanging out. The shelter has room for 72 persons to sit and eat.
