We are pleased to announce that we are putting into place a new system that will make scheduling much easier for everyone! Using this online system you’ll be able to specify exactly what times do and do not work well for you to serve. You’ll also be able to check your schedule from anywhere and easily find a substitute when you can’t make one of your scheduled dates. Information has been sent to all servers about how to use this new system. If you serve at any of the services and have an email please ensure that the information we have on file for you is accurate.

We look forward to sharing more information about the benefits of this new system with you in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, you may contact Eleanor Sheldon at esheldon@hsechurch.org.

If you have an iOS or Android device, you can download a free app that will make it easier to view your scheduled dates, request and accept subs, and update your profile from your mobile device! Follow these steps to get started:
