Volunteering at PCPC

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.

Prayer Shawl Knitters
Looking for a way to share your talents on a regular or even as-needed basis? Wish you could knit but don’t know how? Already an expert knitter and need an outlet for your work? Maybe you prefer more introverted activities in general, but still want to show love to the community.
Join the Prayer Shawl Knitters! They are a group currently knitting separately in their homes. The Prayer Shawls go to congregation members and friends who are in need of a sign of God’s love. They are also willing to teach those who need a lesson or two.
Please contact Ellie Hunt at 813-727-0528 or Martha Spicklemire at 813-837-8903.

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 PCPC Child and Youth Protection 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 volunteer@palmaceia.org.
