Would you like to serve on an outside team for the next
Northeast Michigan DeColores Weekend? Below are the teams for the Men's and Women's Weekends. Select the team
of choice and sign up. If the team is filled, try another.
*In order to serve, you MUST have completed a DeColores
or other similar 3-day weekend
Setup Team: The setup team comes to the church, usually on Wednesday
evening, to set up the entire church to accommodate the weekend: Unload the trailers, move church furniture out of
the way, set up cots for sleeping, set up the Rollo room, etc. This usually take a couple of hours. Team members
will be notified of the specific date and time for setup by the Setup Coordinator.
Kitchen Help: Kitchen help team members set the tables for the meal,
may assist cooks preparing the meal, serve candidates and team members during the meal, help clean-up (including
dish-washing) after the meal. You will generally be required to come in 1/2 to 1 hour before the meal and stay
until clean-up is complete. Specific times will be provided by the Kitchen Help Coordinator.
Take-down Team: The take-down team is responsible for taking down and
packing any equipment that will not be used on Sunday. They will move the church furniture that had been removed
from the various rooms back to where they were and clean areas used for sleeping. The church must be made ready to
resume normal Sunday morning worship/Sunday School services, so the team will have to be at the Church promptly at
6:00 a.m. There will be a Take-down Team Coordinator that will provide specific information regarding time and what
needs to be done.
Clean-up Team: The Clean-up team will remain after the Closing
ceremonies on Sunday afternoon to thoroughly clean the church. This is a very important job! We must leave
the church in as good or better condition than when we arrived. Whether or not we will be able to use their
facility in the future will depend on the thoroughness of the Clean-up crew. A Clean-up Coordinator will be
responsible for overseeing this work.
24-Hour Prayer: A 24-hour prayer chapel will always be on site to
provide 24-hours of prayer from 8:00 p.m. Friday evening through 8:00 p.m. Saturday evening. When you sign up for
one or more hours, you will be expected to be at the chapel at the specific time (the previous person cannot leave
until you arrive) and remain there until the next person arrives. During your time you will be praying for the team
and candidates. This is a very important responsibility because PRAYER is what makes these weekend a success!
