Palma Ceia Presbyterian utilizes volunteers to carry out ministries in our church and throughout the community. All ages and stages are encouraged to share their time and talents according to areas of ministry that interest an individual. Announcements about volunteering opportunities are listed on the website, electronic news, bulletins and the newsletter from time to time. If you are particularly interested in serving a ministry group, contact the leader of that group directly (See the Staff Directory). If you would like to get general information about volunteering, please contact PCPC.
Child & Youth Volunteers
The most valuable and vulnerable assets at PCPC are our children and youth. Both the staff and the Children and Youth committees play a large role in guiding these ministries and making sure the children and youth of our congregation and community remain protected and safe during all programming and activities.
- Volunteering is fun and it is sometimes demanding, but volunteers always benefit from the enriching experience.
- Volunteers are provided with guidance and support from the Christian Education Director or the Youth Director.
- Volunteers do not need to be biblical scholars or have deep knowledge of the Bible or scripture. All volunteers should be willing to share the love and stories of Jesus in a variety of formats.
If you are interested in or plan to volunteer in programs at PCPC that involve children under 18 years of age, you will be required to review the Child & Youth Policy and complete our background screening process (more information is provided in the policy Appendix section). The background screening application is provided online and processed by a 3rd party. Volunteers that will not be driving their own vehicle or the church bus do not need to complete the information on drivers license but must complete the rest of the application. Any other questions or concerns about the screening process should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Several ministries at Palma Ceia involve providing transportation to members and those in our community. Anyone who drives the church mini-bus or a personal vehicle for church needs/business must meet the PCPC insurance requirements. These requirements include allowing PCPC to obtain a current Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) and keep a copy of the volunteer’s drivers license and insurance on file. Anyone who wants to drive the bus will also need to meet with Wally Wilcher to review the procedures and take a test drive. To initiate an online MVR search, follow the link below and complete the application which is administered by a a 3rd party. Any questions or concerns about the screening process should be sent to email@example.com.
