Volunteer for GV SERVE

Gallatin Valley SERVE 2019 (July 6-13) needs your help to host 75 youth and adult leaders from across the United States and Canada.  SERVE participants arrive on Saturday, July 6th and engage in worship and community building over the weekend.  During the following week, they head into the Gallatin Valley on various service projects in our community.

We are seeking volunteers to help this mission trip run smoothly.  Opportunities include being a prayer partner, lending items, helping clean, providing security, shopping for groceries, heading work sites, and much more.

VBS: June 17-21

Roar!  Life is Wild.  God is Good.

This is the theme of the 2019 Churchill VBS program.  Participating children will “explore God’s goodness and celebrate a ferocious faith that powers them through this wild life.”

VBS is held at Bethel CRC (7693 Churchill Road, Manhattan, MT) from June 17-21, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.  This no-cost event includes songs, Bible lessons, indoor and outdoor activities, and snacks.  In addition to the elementary school program for children entering kindergarten through entering 6th grade, we also provide a preschool program for children who are at least 3 years old by June 17th and are toilet trained.

Sign up here to register your child(ren) as participants.

We are also looking for volunteers to help lead crews of children throughout the week.  Anyone entering high school through adult is invited to sign up to lead an elementary or preschool crew.  Preschool is also looking for middle schoolers (completed 6th or 7th grade) to be crew assistants.

Volunteers are also needed to watch children in the nursery, oversee decorations, prepare snacks, take care of cleaning up, and more.

Sign up here to be a volunteer.  This is also the place to sign up to provide donations of food and supplies.

For more information, contact Ashley Venhuizen of Bethel CRC.

Volunteer Schedules

Volunteer Schedules

Members, thank you for your willingness to serve as scheduled.  If you will not be available on the dates you are scheduled to serve, please arrange to switch with another volunteer.

We will put a note on our Facebook page to let you know when this post has been edited to update the lists.

For those who participate in the Planning Center worship planning tool, please use Planning Center’s black out feature to mark yourself unavailable on your volunteer dates.  This helps us avoid double-scheduling you for praise team/nursery, AV/serving coffee, etc.
