Circuit Riders

What exactly does a Circuit Rider do
and how do I become a Circuit Rider?

Each Circuit Rider contacts about six families a week, either by seeing them in service, calling or sending notes. They then forward this information back to the church office each week so Pastor Lois knows needs that need to be lifted up in prayer and can share in the praise of those prayers being answered. Pastor Lois also can help follow up with other needs that the Circuit Rider has identified. In this way we can care for more people that one pastor can track and no one need “slip through the cracks”. To become a Circuit Rider simply contact Bruce Joyner, our Chair of Discipleship at 530-674-5295 or leave a message for him at the church office. You can volunteer to be a substitute when one of our Circuit Riders is out of town, on vacation or ill. You can also volunteer to be one of our regular Circuit Riders!
