For many parishioners, actively volunteering in the community is a major aspect of their Heavenly Rest life. The Church of the Heavenly Rest has a long and proud history of community involvement, dating back to its 1890 soup kitchen. Community outreach and social activism remain a vital element in our communal life.
Volunteering isn’t only focused outward — it can also be a matter of strengthening bonds within our own parish community. Volunteer opportunities within the church include working on fundraising events such as the annual Christmas Festival or seasonal Thrift Sales, attending breakfast groups and Bible study groups, and serving as chalice bearers or lectors in any of our weekly services.
