Giving & Serving
Serving in the Church
We would love to help you find the place of service in the church.
Helping Hands and Willing Hearts
The good things you experience at Peoples are made possible by the helping hands and willing hearts of those around you.
In fact, on Sunday morning, you probably experience and benefit of at least a half-dozen volunteers by the time you simply find a seat–and that’s only one example.
When you join in serving, you will not only bless others, but you will also make friends and contribute to our common purpose in God’s global mission.
Sunday Service Ushers
SUNDAYS • 11:30 AM & 2:00 PM
Our ushers often give the first impression of Peoples to our attendees on Sundays. They have the responsibility of ensuring that every congregant and visitor is offered care and assistance, making their visit to The Peoples Church as pleasant as possible. We are in need of ushers for both our 11:30 AM and 2:00 PM services. If you are interested in serving as an usher, please pick up a volunteer registration form from the Connection Centre or contact Reg Andrews.
Parking Team Volunteers
If you are looking for a way to get connected at Peoples we invite you to join our team that manages our most limited resource – you guessed it – parking! It can be challenging but the rewards are outstanding. If you are interested, please fill out a volunteer registration form at the Connection Centre.
Youth Ministry Volunteers
The Youth Ministry would like you to consider serving with us through the following opportunities:
- Sunday Morning Junior High – Our class is growing rapidly and we could use some help ministering to this awesome group!
- Friday Night Youth Life Group leaders
Our goal is for youth to be motivated by the gospel to live out their faith everyday. We hope that you’ll join us in this goal! If you are interested, please contact us.
