We Want to Make Serving Others Easy


That’s why we created this page. Below you’ll find all current and ongoing volunteer opportunities available at Parker UMC. We all have gifts and talents that God intends for us to share with others. Do you have a servant’s heart?…A welcoming personality?…a love for teaching, comforting, healing? If you feel called to volunteer your time to share those gifts and talents then we have a place for you.

Sunday School Helpers Needed

Come join us in Sunday School!  We have so much fun, but we need your help! I am in need of more Sunday School helpers.  I do most of the work (and talking), I just need some loving people to help me with Sunday School.  Elementary age kiddos meet in the Fellowship Hall after the Time for Children in worship. We come together to have announcements, celebrations, prayer and Bible story.  This fall I would like to have enough volunteers to break up into small groups for 15 minutes.  This helps the children connect on a deeper level.  During this short time I would like to have the kids work with you on an activity and or game (Erin and I will set up and provide you with everything you need). Then we would all meet up again in the Fellowship Hall for music dance videos until parents arrive. Signing up is super easy!  I have created a signup genius for each Sunday.  You can sign up for one Sunday or several, whatever fits your schedule! Please contact Noelle Allison, Director of Children and Families noelle@parkerumc.org with questions.

The Winter Shelter Network Needs Your Help

Wednesdays starting November 1st

We have begun gearing up to meet the needs of up to forty guests who may spend one evening a week with us.  If you have not worked with the shelter in the past and want to learn about it or sign up to volunteer, or you are an experienced volunteer with our shelter but haven’t yet been contacted to sign up for this winter, please contact one of the shelter volunteer coordinators, either Jennifer Wright at douglasenterprizes@msn.com (303-921-0692) or Steve Kascht at kskascht@aol.com (720-934-3670) so we can talk with you about what opportunities are available.

If you wish to donate to the Winter Shelter Network effort at our church, our big need this year is the purchase of privacy dividers to provide each guest a bit of space for her cot and personal belongings.  If you want to donate towards the purchase of these dividers, you may donate online using the PUMC website or drop a check in the offertory basket.  If you write a check, please remember to write WSN in the memo line.

Thank you.  We are looking forward to another year of inviting in our guests and supporting them in their journey.  We hope you can be part of this mission.

Ongoing Opportunities


Teaching ESL – English as a Second Language

No Experience Necessary. You only need to speak English.

Restoration Outreach Programs (ROP) is looking for dedicated people to teach for 2 hours twice a week.

ROP is reaching the world at our doorstep through our ESL Classes (English as a Second Language).  ROP serves a large multicultural community made up of immigrants and refugees from around the globe.

These ESL classes provide individuals who speak little or no English with an opportunity to learn and practice English, so that they might function more effectively within our society.

Teachers and tutors will have the opportunity for relational ministry as they build friendships with our eager refugee and immigrant students in the community.  Class room assistants have the opportunity to sit alongside students, during class, and give additional personal help to students.

Class schedule:  Six classes are meeting Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon beginning September 5th.  Each class meets for one and a half hours for two days per week.

There is no cost to teach. Teaching is learn as you go. However, to start, you will be able to assist so that you can get a feel for it.

Please contact Barbara Crowder ExperiencingGod@outlook.com for details.
