Opportunities to Serve

Yorkminster depends on our volunteers to carry out our mission. We are grateful for anyone to help us in a way that works with their own unique talents. Although this list is by no means exhaustive, here are some ways you can make a difference:

Serve During Church

Following are just a few of the duties that are performed during worship. Volunteers are asked to help once every 6 to 8 weeks.

  • Greeter - For those with a quick smile and a welcoming heart, consider greeting those who come to church. Shake hands, open doors and answer questions visitors may have.

  • Usher - Welcome everyone to worship and hand out programs at the sanctuary doors before services begin. Distribute and collect the offering plate during the service.

  • Worship Leader - Serve alongside the pastors as you come to the pulpit to introduce and lead specific prayers during the service.

  • Acolyte - Children from 2nd to 8th grades can be the official candle-lighter who brings in and carries out the light of Christ at the open and close of worship.

  • Nursery Worker - We need two adults in both our infant and toddler nurseries to take care of our youngest children.

Let us know you want to help.


Share a Special Talent

Yorkminster has a few volunteer needs for specific talents.  If your talents lie in one of these areas you can apply your passion to help others.

  • Cooking Team - Our church holds a variety of special events, including a monthly Fellowship Dinner, that require meals. If you love to cook, we would love to have you join us in our state-of-the-art kitchen.

  • Giving Garden - YPC grows a garden and donates all of the produce to help feed the hungry. If you love to garden or would like to learn, we could use your talents in our garden.

  • Prayer Shawl - If you love to knit or crochet, we could use your talents to help make prayer shawls to bring love and care to those in our community who are going through difficult times.
