Serving Our Church

FPC Greeters & Ushers Needed

Contact: Alissa in the church office (360) 734-5510 or info@fpcbellingham.org
Friendly people are needed to help usher and greet every few weeks at Sunday morning worship services.

FPC A/V Help Needed

Contact: Worship Director Jocelyn at jocelyn@fpcbellingham.org
Making sure people can hear well and see content are two ways we do our best to communicate on a Sunday morning – come learn the ropes and share your time by volunteering with our A/V team! We have a rotating schedule for which you can volunteer for as little as a few times a year, or as often as every couple weeks! Email if you have further questions, or to sign up! No experience required – curiosity and dependability preferred.

FPC Facilities Volunteers

Contact: Alissa in the church office at (360) 734-5510 or info@fpcbellingham.org
Would you, your family, or your small group be willing to “adopt a flower bed” at FPC? We are looking for people to help keep the landscape tidy, plant as needed (plants provided by the church), and weed. Many hands make light work! We are also looking for people who would be willing to loan out their pick-up truck for church-related tasks, and people who could shovel snow when needed early Sunday mornings in the winter. If you could be on call for any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact us!

Café Pres Servers

Contact: Alissa in the church office at (360) 734-5510 or info@fpcbellingham.org
We are always in need of more volunteers to serve Café Pres after our Sunday morning worship services. Training and food is provided – we just need to the servers to prepare, set it out, and clean up afterwards.

Donate Snacks to the Children’s Ministry

Contact: Kerrie Bauer by email or (360) 734-5510
Donations of Costco Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers 45 count “on the go packs” are a gift to our children’s program. We use them in both the toddler room and Godly Play. If you are able to donate a box or two, please drop them off in the Children’s Ministry office (at the base of the stairs by the bathrooms).

Volunteer in the Toddler Room or as a Godly Play Mentor

Contact: Kerrie Bauer by email or (360) 734-5510
Our Children’s Department can always use more volunteers to help take care of and mentor kids on Sunday mornings. There are a variety of ways you can volunteer – contact Kerrie to see what the best fit will be for you.

Serving Our Community

Deacon Ministry Opportunities

As part of the Deacon ministry of bringing compassion, care, and prayer to our church family, we invite you to take part in various projects.

Prayer Shawls

Contact: Kerrie Bauer by email or at (360) 734-5510.
This exciting project blesses young and old alike. If you knit or crochet, we could use your help making prayer shawls for FPC members and others who are lonely, sick, or hurting, to let them know that they are loving, thought of and prayed for daily.

Handmade Baby Items

Contact: Kerrie Bauer by email or at (360) 734-5510.
Do you hand knit or quilt baby blankets? Or create special soaps or candles? We’d love to add your special gifts to the care package we give every new mom and baby at FPC. 

Bake for Memorials or Church Events

Contact: Alissa McSharry by email or at (360) 734-5510. Sign up for this group online.
Our Deacons assist families with memorial service receptions when loved ones pass away by serving homemade cookies or other baked goods and coffee to the attendees. In order to be sure we will have enough cookies even at short notice, we keep a list of “cookie bakers” who are willing to make a dozen or so cookies or other baked goods when needed.

Drive Elderly Congregants to Sunday Morning Worship

Contact: Alissa McSharry by email or at (360) 734-5510.
Would you be able to pick up one of our elderly congregants who are no longer able to drive and bring them to church on Sunday mornings? We are in need of people who we can connect with these church members so that they are still able to come to church on a regular basis.

Make a Meal

Contact: Alissa McSharry by email or at (360) 734-5510. Sign up for this group online.
Contact us if you would like to be on a list for the Deacons to contact when meals are needed. Fix a meal, label it, prepare for the freezer, drop it off at FPC, and we’ll use it for emergency meal needs!
