Because of this increase in church attendance, there’s more to do, and there’s an increased need for help. Many churches do special things during the Christmas season.

This time of year is also an opportunity to get new people involved for the first time. Having a clear goal and definite ideas about how to manage the volunteers can make the difference between winning a new volunteer or not or perhaps even losing a faithful one.
