Interested in serving? Here are our current opportunities and areas of need:
Children’s Ministry school year volunteers are going on break this June and July!
In order to give them time off, Children’s Ministry is looking for new volunteers to take their place.
Serving is super simple as the Children’s Ministry staff prepares all the lessons and supplies ahead of time. Consider serving during either the 9:30 or 11:00 services anywhere from infants to 6th Grade. We are also looking for Check-In and Liaison volunteers.
Stop by the display in the foyer for more information and to check out the current needs.
Signups are also available on online:
Please note: by signing up, you are not guaranteed a volunteer position. Each volunteer who signs-up must go through Parkview's process for selecting volunteers which includes a background check (for those over eighteen years of age), filling out a volunteer disclosure form, and meeting with a staff member. This is a safety and security procedure established both for the children who attend and for the volunteers who serve.

Greeting, Parking, Connect Center
Central & East Campus
We have a high need for people to join our First Impressions team! The Connect Center is often a visitor's first stop at Parkview where they are looking for how to connect to worship and community. By serving, you'll help newcomers and attenders find community groups, classes and opportunities to meet them right where they are at. Volunteers choose the Sundays and times they would like to serve. Contact John to volunteer.

Opportunities to serve vary, but include roles in Nursery (0-2 years), Pre-K (3-5 years), Unite (K-3rd grade), and Launch (4th-6th grade).
