Serve

Dunbar Ryerson United Church has opportunities for people to offer their gifts both inside and outside of the congregation. What you’ll find listed here are some of the internal activities we have. As we have additional opportunities, we’ll be updating this menu option.

Greeters Sundays | 9:15am
Greeters take turns once every three months to meet people as they come into the church. They pass out bulletins, take up the offering, and tidy the pews after service.

Coffee Hour Hosts Sundays | 9:15am
On assigned Sundays, hosts arrive at 9:15am to prepare for the after-service coffee time. They help with serving and clean up afterwards. This is an important ministry of hospitality and a good way to connect with others.

Library Group Sundays | during coffee hour
Help file and shelve books and set up book displays during coffee hour.

Sandwich Making Last Thursday of the month | 9:00am
As a community of God’s people, we hope to share that love in ways both big and small. We meet in the kitchen to make sandwiches for First United’s mission in the Downtown Eastside.

Front Desk Hosts Monday to Friday | by shift
Volunteers sit at the front desk to assist staff by answering the phone, greeting visitors, locking up in the evening, and various other tasks. Shifts are available for mornings, afternoons, or evenings.
