Lay Readers and Greeters. Readers will get the reading from Karen several days before Sunday. Greeters – what a great way to say hello to old friends and meet new ones. Greeters also do a headcount and take any money collected to the safe in the workroom. Training and written instructions are provided.

Communion Servers (4)

Communion Sunday is always the same day as the Children’s Service; this would be an excellent way to combine both and get your Family involved with the Communion experience. Instructions are provided.

Communion Steward (1-2+)

Another excellent opportunity to get your Family involved on Communion Sunday. Ideally, bread and juice would be dropped off at church on the Thursday before Communion Sunday. Cutting the bread and filling the juice cups take place before the service begins and instructions are provided.

Wednesday Night Suppers

Four volunteers will be needed each week to set-up and serve, or to clean-up.


Coffee Hour

Coffee Hour. Help our LHUMC community connect with old and new friends! Please note that there are 2 shifts. Set-Up and Clean-Up. Instructions provided.

Every Meal at Lyndale School (2)

This is a critical way to provide food for children and families who may not have enough to get them through the weekend. Usually takes place weekly on Fridays, but the schedule could be fluid due to school holidays. This is truly a joyous way to spread love and kindness in a school setting with darling children. There are many openings through the rest of the school year, which for Every Meal has been extended to June 17th.

Mowing at LHUMC

Do you live in an apt or condo with no grass to mow? OR maybe you have a city lot with so little grass you could cut it with a scissors so it feels like changing into your mowing pants just isn’t worth it. Well, we have a solution. Sign up to mow the church lawn!
