Joseph is sold into slavery

March 7–13, 2022 Come, Follow Me Songs

Call for volunteers!

While my assistant Terri and I are happy to keep producing the weekly Come, Follow Me list as-is, we also have some ideas for improvements. If you (or someone you know) would be interested in joining our all-volunteer team to work on any of the following projects, we’d love to have you! Click here to sign up.

  • Create a printable version of the weekly CFM list (30-60 min/week)
  • Create Spotify, YouTube, etc. playlists based on the weekly CFM music list (1-2 hours per week)
  • Become a regular contributor to the weekly CFM music list, freeing up time for me to work on the rest of the improvements. Also, with more contributors, we may be able to publish much further in advance (a month or more), as some have requested. (Choose to spend as little as 15 minutes or as much as 1-2 hours per week)
  • Work on the back-end of the website (intermediate/advanced WordPress experience needed), including migrating the site to a new, easier-to-remember domain name! (possibly 20 hours upfront, then a small amount of time ongoing)
  • Help catalog and tag music that’s not in the Hymns or Children’s Songbook. E.g. youth music, songs published in the church magazines, music not published by the church, etc. The goal of this is to have a topical index of all of these songs. (Time commitment could be a few minutes to hours depending on your interest and availability.)
  • Help revise and update the resources section of website (5-10 hours total, can be spread out or done all at once)
  • Make audio and/or video recordings of lesser-known hymns, songs from Church magazines (time commitment TBD
  • Improve disability accessibility for the website (e.g. making sure all pictures have alternate text, etc.) (15-20 minutes per week)
  • Establish and maintain social media pages for Music for Latter-day Life (time commitment TBD)

Thanks for your support!
