Application to Serve

Working on a team can be a very rewarding way to serve the Emmaus Community.

As a member of the Birmingham South Cluster, we encourage you to prayerfully complete the Information and Application to Serve form. This form is used by the cluster to identify your areas of interest for service in the cluster. When there is a walk that involves the Birmingham South Cluster, the Lay Director will normally ask for and review this information to assist in planning a team.

Directions on where to send the form are included in it.

Please complete this service sheet whenever your information or changes, such as after serving on a team or at least once a year.
