Below is a list of volunteer position we have here at First Pres.

It is extensive (though not comprehensive) and there are options for the introvert, the extrovert, the teacher, the cook, those who like to be behinds the scenes.  There are some that are a limited commitment of a few hours to others than are longer term.

There is something for everyone, and First Pres absolutely needs you! Each and every person is gifted to do something. You will benefit more than you give and will be actively participating in the Mission of the church.

If you find the list too daunting, we highly recommend using our Volunteer Discovery Tool (see the link and description in the box on this page).
