Serve at Wilshire

Find a place to plug in.

We all engage in the work and life of this community differently; there is no perfect path of participation. We all have different availability and ability, skills, desires and needs. We encourage everyone who discovers Wilshire to find the connection point that is most meaningful to them. If participating in service within the congregation would be meaningful to you, here are just a few ways to go about it.

Adam’s Baskets

Wilshire members support a food pantry with collection of non-perishable food items. Food can be placed in wicker baskets located in the hallways throughout the church. The ministry is in memory of Adam Malcik and coordinated by members of the Compass Class.

Children and Preschool Teachers

A cadre of volunteers make the Bible come to life for preschoolers and children on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings through Sunday School, missions and choir programs. For children’s and preschool ministry, contact Julie Girards. For children’s choir, contact Candy McComb.

Library Volunteers

Wilshire’s excellent library is staffed primarily by volunteers. You can join the team. Contact Librarian Barbara Peterson.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are laypeople who complete 50 hours of training to become certified in this ecumenical ministry. Once trained, Stephen Ministers are paired one-on-one with individuals facing times of life crisis, to be listening companions. Contact Linda Garner.
