Giving Time

Offering your time and energy to St. John’s Presbyterian Church is an excellent choice, too. Evaluate what types of volunteer positions you’d like to assume and bring your experiences to us.  Since volunteers give the gift of service, we try to place you where you are most comfortable.

• Want to help in the office (Tuesday through Fridays), or on Sundays with the service’s preparation? There are a myriad of duties ready for you to claim them. Come on down and we’ll talk to you about them.

• Five times a year, we have outdoor work-parties wherein we work in teams to groom the campus grounds. St. John’s members, Boy Scout Troop 6 and Living Water Church folks are here on those days working together. We provide bagels, cream cheese and juice in the morning. Send us an email indicating that you are interested, and we’ll put you on the mailing list for future dates.

• Can you cook or would you like to learn? Food Not Bombs operates out of our kitchen on Wednesdays and Thursday from 11am to 4pm. Newbies are welcome. For more information, go to their Food Not Bombs website or our SJ Food not Bombs webpage page.

• Need to fulfil Community Service hours? We can put you to work.

• Special skills or talents? If you have a particular gift that you’d like to share with us, please consider working with us. We’d love to discuss your project with you, and get you up and running.

Thank you for the light within you and for the opportunity to work with you.
