Part-time Secretary Needed

Dear Friends in Christ,


I need your help. Our church secretary at Rossford UMC has resigned because she is returning to school. January 30 is her last day. We are searching for the "perfect" candidate to step into this position. The current hours are Monday - Friday 8 am. to 2 pm but we are willing to be somewhat flexible. The candidate does not have to be United Methodist but it would be beneficial for the person to have background in the UM church. The candidate does need computer skills, respect for confidentiality, good work ethic and willing to work for $9 - $10 an hour. 


One of the benefits of this part-time position is the flexibility it offers for personal family issues. If you are willing to put on your thinking cap and help me find someone who may be interested, I would be deeply grateful. Perhaps there is someone you know who has school age children and would like to get out of the home for a while and still have opportunity to be at home before school begins and after it is out.


Thank you for your help in finding this person. Please have them call me at 419-270-1234 or e-mail me at skywalker270@att.net.


Grace and Peace, Bob Ball
