Here are some current volunteer opportunities within and beyond our church. If you would like to do something at the church, but we don't currently have a listing in your gifts and skills, please contact Rev. Alexandra Robinson at [email protected] and we will find the perfect fit for you!
Within the church:
Sunday morning Greeter Do you love the church and want to welcome new visitors? Even if you just have 10 minutes before worship on a Sunday morning, we need you! Please come be another friendly face at the doors of Walnut Hill before each worship service. Contact Lisa at [email protected] to get more info and get started to be the welcoming presence of the church!
Front desk receptionist Do you have the gift of hospitality? Want to be the first impression of the church for our guests? We are looking for a receptionist on Thursday mornings from 9-noon. It is great fun to be the helpful face of Walnut Hill and we will provide training for all the other details! Contact Ricky Hill at [email protected].
Nutshell Retail Would you like to learn more about the worthy artisans that are featured in our Nutshell? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of people around the world through the sale of their hand crafted items? Do you know a college student who would like to "intern" in our Nutshell by helping us a couple of times per month? We are looking for people to volunteer in our Nutshell Shop in 30 minute slots on Sunday mornings once a month to assist in supporting our "pop-up" artisans. You will receive training and education on each of these artisans.
Stephen Ministry Care Receivers Do you know of someone who is going through a challenging life transition? Perhaps they are grieving the loss of a spouse, overwhelmed with the birth of a new baby, discouraged after a job loss or wrestling with elder care responsibilities. Our Stephen Ministers are available to be a listening ear. Stephen Ministers are trained to walk alongside people in these difficult circumstances and will be available to meet with persons at the end of May. Persons interested in receiving care from one of our trained Stephen Ministers are referred by the congregation but do not need to be members or even visitors of the church. Please contact Martha Jacobson at [email protected] if you know of someone in your life or neighborhood who could benefit from a Stephen Ministry Christian caring relationship.
Outside of the church
Lots of Walnut Hill Our upcoming Pets On The Hill offers many fantastic opportunities to get involved in this fun, lively "parking lot ministry". If you like having fun and networking in our great community please contact Lisa Ormsbee at [email protected] for more info.
Project Transformation After School program Walnut Hill UMC has been selected to be a site for a brand new after school program for Project Transformation. This is a huge honor and there is much work to be done on our planning team. If you have a passion for ensuring children receive quality after school care and are great at either organizing, planning, recruiting or being a part of a caring group of individuals at the after school program, please contact Rick Hill at [email protected].
