Here at First and Calvary Presbyterian Church we value serving others.
We hope the Help Wanted page helps facilitate you using your God-given gifts to serve others.
For Whom the Bell Tolls
On Sundays, we call those around us to worship by ringing the church bell. Each time we open our doors to congregants, covenant partners, and the community on Sundays and holidays, there are volunteer opportunities that are critical to providing the best and safest experience to those who enter those doors.
These positions are lovingly filled by members of our congregation, but their tenure is not permanent. That is why you will notice Help Wanted Ads for “Evergreen” roles such as greeters, help setting up coffee, security volunteers, help tidying up the sanctuary after services, help in the nursery and/or classrooms, and the list goes on. When you see these ads remember that the need for your help is continuous. Each time you hear the church bell ring think of it as not just a call to worship but as a reminder that to open our doors we need the help of volunteers. For whom does the bell toll? If it is you, please contact the church office at 417-862-5068 to explore how you can help.

Using Your Talents
Pastor Don Everts has spoken on the importance of using the talents that God has bestowed on each of us. In 2024 the Stewardship Committee once again asks that each of us consider sharing not only our financial gifts, but those of our time and talent. Perhaps this is the time to join the choir, to help with general maintenance and/or clean-up of the church as needed, to play an instrument for all to enjoy during services, or to act as a liturgist. Please consider sharing the talents that were given so plentifully by God with those who worship with you. To discuss how you would like to offer your talents please contact Robin Jaques at email@example.com or by calling the church office at 417-865-5068
Do You Love Children?
If you have a passion to teach and minister to children grades 1-5, please consider serving with our Sunday School teachers on a rotation basis as a lead or assistant teacher on Sunday mornings at 9:45am.
For more information on how to join our Sunday School teaching team, email Lisa Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we approach some of the church's milestone anniversaries, we seek to add to its collective memories through stories and photos. Do you have church memories you want to share? Are you the proud owner of photos of church functions from the past? We would cherish the opportunity to speak with you or to receive copies of those pics.
Please contact Robin Jaques at the church office at 417-862-5068 or at email@example.com. The photos and stories may be used in future communications and church publications and credited to you. Please take the time to reach out to future generations in this way.
