Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are always needed to support various BPC activities. To volunteer for any opportunies with BPC, please contact the church office at 703-764-0456 or info@burkepreschurch.org.

Burke Centre Festival

We are gearing up for one of our biggest outreach efforts to the Burke community and we need YOU. The Burke Centre Festival is September 12 and 13, and BPC’s tents are always popular. It’s a wonderful way to interact with our neighbors and share our enthusiasm for BPC! The volunteer sign-up sheets are in the narthex.

Fix-it Team

As with any property, there’s always something that needs tending. You can help this
team in two ways: If you spot a problem with the interior of BPC, let us know! There is a clipboard on the bulletin board in the church office (“Fix-It Forms”): Fill out a form and alert us to the problem. And if you’d like to join the team, we’d love to have you. You don’t have to be a home improvement expert: Just show up Tuesdays at 10 a.m. Any questions, contact George Sturgill.

Grocery Shoppers

Christ House has been serving the homeless and sick since 1985. BPC prepares dinner on the second Saturday of every month for the residents. Please help us in this mission by going grocery shopping! The Christ House shopping cart with shopping lists and detailed instructions is located on the narthex Ministries Board.

Meals & Drivers

Are you willing to occasionally make/deliver a meal or drive a friend to an appointment? BPC is in serious need of volunteers to help with these important ministries. Contact office@burkepreschurch.org to volunteer; please specify whether you are willing to help with an occasional meal, driving trip, or both!

Nursery Care

We have a very busy nursery these days. If you think you would enjoy playing with and caring for our toddlers and babies some Sunday morning, please let us know. Our kids (and parents!) need you. Contact Arlene Decina (arlene@burkepreschurch.org).

Office

Office volunteers needed! Do you have a little extra time during weekday hours that you’d be willing to share with BPC? The office needs you, especially if you have experience using Microsoft Word and/or Excel or would like to assist with phone calls. Contact Cindy Pettigrew (Cindy@burkepreschurch.org)

Sound Techs

Interested in sound equipment? Want to help God’s word be heard (literally)? We need volunteer sound technicians both at CoffeeHouse worship on Saturday evenings and Sunday morning worship (11 a.m., starting Sept. 13). Interested? Contact office@burkepreschurch.org

Tutors

Be part of a rewarding local mission. The Snacks and Backpacks Tutoring Club needs regular and substitute tutors. Tutors come to BPC to help local elementary children with homework, one-on-one, from 3:30-5 p.m. on Mondays. The club starts after Columbus Day (October 19) and runs until Memorial Day. This is an interesting, rewarding way to help young people in our community. Please contact Cathey Parker to learn more.
