Volunteer at Friends

Greeters help to make worship a more meaningful experience. They will be the first people that those who enter our worship space will meet, and they are responsible for much of the logistics of the service. So, in many ways, greeters are the face of Friends and the ones who make our services run smoothly and be as welcoming as possible.

To volunteer, contact Worship Chair at

Changing the Church Sign

Assist the Outreach committee by changing the church sign to notify the community about church events, as well as to spread our church's message of welcome and inclusion! Volunteers for this part of our ministry are especially necessary around holidays when our church has multiple events to share with the community.

To be added to the list of volunteers, contact the Evangelism & Outreach Committee.

Coffee Crew

​Please consider being a part of Friends Church Coffee Crew! Choose between preparing coffee before the 9 AM service or cleaning up after the 11 AM service. Coffee Prep would involve starting the coffee brewing around 8:15 AM. Coffee Cleanup would follow the 11 AM service, and involve loading cups into the dishwasher and washing out the pots.


A tutorial will be provided and your service will be very much appreciated!

Recycling Stewards

Our recycling stewards assist the sustainability team by collecting recyclable waste from bins around the church and moving it to the curbside recycling container. Every other Thursday, the recycling stewards bring our recycling container down to the church driveway for city collection.
