The primary objective of the Office Angel Ministry is to help our Office Administrator, Connie Eckert, with special projects such as stuffing bulletins and assembling welcome packets. Angels need to be comfortable answering phones and have a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office, if possible.
What do Office Angels do?
They fold, cut, staple, stuff, and perform lots of other odd jobs. Mostly, they stuff bulletins, cut inserts, stuff mailings, put labels on booklets or envelopes, do copying, and answer phones (filling in as receptionist), but the work can also include data entry, typing, and sometimes organizing and/or cleaning.
When Connie is caught up, other staff members also have interesting tasks where assistance is greatly appreciated.
There are about seven regulars and several “on-call” subs. Office Angels generally work one day a week for 2–3 hours, from 9:30–11 AM, or, in some cases, all day. Most of the work is in the morning, beginning at 9:30, when the office opens. Connie arrives at 11:00, so the first hour and a half is answering phones, acting as a receptionist, and working on projects until she arrives.
