Volunteer Opportunities

All are welcome to contribute to our ministries by helping out in our children’s and youth programs, serving on a church board or committee, gardening or handy work, cooking or baking, dishwashing after fellowship, visiting housebound members or chipping in anywhere else there is a need.

The List is the way we share of our time and talent with one another.  Each week we lift up an opportunity to volunteer within a specific ministry at Countryside. Check the Order of Worship each Sunday or the weekly email to learn what is the List for each week.

Volunteer Highlight

Our hard-working folks who spruced up the church on Saturday, April 9.  A contingency of roughly 70 volunteers from all eight leadership boards along with our church Moderators and the Boy Scout Troop that meets at Countryside weekly, spent their Saturday morning washing windows, cleaning up the grounds, vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing tables/chairs, staining and much more!  You all did an amazing job and we thank you for your hard work, dedication and commitment to Countryside Community Church!
