Giving & Serving

Serving in the Church

We would love to help you find your place of service in the church.

Helping Hands and Willing Hearts

The good things you experience here at Peoples are made possible by the helping hands and willing hearts of those around you.

In fact, on Sunday morning, you probably experience the 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.

If this is your first time serving at The Peoples Church, please fill out this First Serve Application.

Serving Directory

We always have openings in various kinds of serving roles within the church, and we would love to help you find yours. As you consider the unique abilities God has given you, please see what you can do in our Serving Directory.

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 have a fantastic opportunity for you! You can be a part of a great group of people that manage our most limited resource. You guessed it –PARKING! It is challenging but the rewards are outstanding:

• You get to spend one (1) Sunday morning in every four (4) in the fresh air. The weather is improving and you will learn the system without having to battle the cold.

• You get to meet many of your fellow congregation members and make them feel welcome.

• You get to work with some of the nicest people you will ever meet.

• You get to make a significant contribution to our ministry as a team.

Best of all you get to give up your parking space for someone else because ALL PARKING TEAM MEMBERS park off-site.

We NEED YOU! So please speak to the staff at the Connection  Centre in the foyer, fill out a Volunteer Registration Form and turn it in at the Connection Centre or email Brian Dawkins. We look forward to having you join us!
