Downtown Gretna will be bustling with a farmer's market on Saturday mornings this summer. This is a great opportunity to spread the word about Jesus and the church, so Steadfast will be there for a few of them. We're looking for 5-10 people to set up our tent, hand out cold water, and sign up to serve for a one or two hour shift of the morning. You can sign up by clicking HERE.

Farmer's market service opportunities
The Coordinator for a Farmer's Market Saturday is responsible for setting up the Steadfast presence at the market and helping our other volunteers for a shift of 2-4 hours.
The Coordinator will work together with the Steadfast staff to find 4-8 people who will serve as “Steadfast Enthusiasts” at the market.
Coordinator is responsible to buy (or assign someone else to buy) 2 bags of ice on Saturday morning, then bring them to the base, where a cooler will be ready with bottled waters.
Coordinator will pick up the Steadfast tent, banners, table, and the cooler at 7:30 on Saturday morning, and then take them downtown to set up the booth. The Market opens at 8am.
Coordinator will stay for 2-4 hours. If a “second-shift” coordinator is not available for that Saturday, then we will take down the booth at 10 am.
Coordinator will return the cooler and tent to the Base.
The Steadfast Enthusiast is there to meet people, hand out water, and strike up conversations about Jesus and the church.
Enthusiasts should come expecting to proactively reach out to people and answer questions they may have about Steadfast.
Enthusiasts who are there for the first or last shift will be expected to help set up and tear down the tent, table, banner, and cooler.
Steadfast enthusiasts should wear a Steadfast t-shirt.
Church staff will post on the Steadfast Facebook page during the preceding weeks
We will announce at the Adult Elective class, on Sunday mornings, and in the eLife
