Teller Team

Members of the Teller Team are responsible for counting and securing the Sunday collections, which takes about 10-15 minutes after the end of the 11 a.m. worship service (10 a.m. worship service when the church is on the summer schedule). The schedule for tellers through mid-May 2018 appears below.

The assigned teller is required to recruit another unrelated person to help count and certify the collection report. Tellers must have a background screening on file in the church office. For procedures see:

When we have two worship services from mid-September to mid-May, collections from the 9 a.m. worship service also are to be counted by the teller and included on the same report with collections from the 11 a.m. service. The 9 a.m. collections will be secured in the same location where the collection plates are kept.

The Teller Team is led by Usher/Teller Coordinator Steve Scott, who will remind tellers of their assignments on the Friday before they are scheduled on Sunday and schedule a substitute if the regularly scheduled teller will not be available.

Until mid-May 2018, regularly scheduled Teller Team members are Ene-Kaja Chippendale, Lisa Fritsche, Ruth Milledge and Jeanne Murphy. Todd Iveson will be a regularly scheduled teller next summer.

Also, until mid-May 2018, Allie Gassmann, Irene Karns, Elaine Martin, Maria Oropallo, Steve Scott and Diane Suhler will serve as “floating” team members who will cover fifth Sundays and be available to substitute when a regularly scheduled teller is not available. In addition, Todd Iveson and Diane Suhler will serve as “floaters” during the summer.

The general teller schedule through mid-May 2018 is:

  • First Sundays – Jeanne Murphy
  • Second Sundays – Lisa Fritsche
  • Third Sundays – Ruth Milledge
  • Fourth Sundays – Ene-Kaja Chippendale
  • Fifth Sundays – alternating “floaters”
