Wanted: Gifted volunteers for difficult service in the local expression of the kingdom of God. 
Motivation to serve should be obedience to God, gratitude, gladness, forgiveness, humility and love.
Service will rarely be glorious.

Temptation to quit place of service will sometimes be strong.

Volunteers must be faithful in spite of long hours, little or no visible results, and possibly no recognition except from God in eternity.  

Donald Whitney, 'Spiritual Disciplines of the Christian Life'

Thank you to all those who serve our church in this way. It's not easy, but it's worth it.
