Our chapel at Fort Detrick has many vibrant programs for adults and children of all ages, Catholic and Protestant. It is that time of year when many move on to other areas, and many new people come on board. We welcome anyone who enjoys ministering in church as a teacher, acolyte, helper, usher, or any area that God's has gifted you, to come and be a part of the ministry. We presently are in need of Sunday School teachers and helpers, Children's Church helpers, adult Bible Study teachers and helpers, ushers, Scripture readers, just about any area you enjoy.
If God has placed in your heart a desire to help out in various ministries, but you just haven't found a place that really needs you, you are welcome to come by and see what we have to offer, and be a part of our worship family.
