Current Volunteer Needs
Call for LTCF Friendly Visitors
Did you know that our congregational care department coordinates a visitation team for long term care facilities (LTCF)? These are church members who devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and LTCF. The team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who don’t attend worship services. Most of the persons we visit listen via WRR 101.1 FM. The LTCF team rotates, stopping by to see about 3-5 persons at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at your own pace. After the visits the team member sends a brief email to the coordinator, Sandy Dehn. That’s all it takes. We currently have openings for two friendly visitors to join the team. Won’t you please consider it? Explore the idea by contacting Dee Wadsworth email@example.com or 214-368-6348 ext 118 for further information as well as training materials for those who wish to participate.
Epiphany Program Volunteer Needs
Epiphany at PHPC is for youth (16+) and adults with special needs. An important aspect of Epiphany is to offer activities and enrichment programs that help develop social skills and independence. Volunteers are needed to: lead and shepherd during Sunday School; assist and mentor during the Life and Arts program staffed by a Life & Arts coordinator; and serve as chaperones for special activities, such as community dances and field trips. Learn more about Epiphany here.
- Sunday School: Sundays from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. as a Teacher or Shepherd once or twice a month.
- Life and Arts: Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. once every 4 to 6 weeks, to establish consistency in interactions with participants.
- Special Events: community dances and field trips scheduled throughout the year (a 2 to 3 hour commitment several times a year).
