The Rock Outreach:  Opportunities to Serve
 Volunteers have formed the core and strength of The Rock’s ministry for the past 21 years.  You have made the difference in there being a dynamic ministry in the old St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, reaching out to the poor and homeless in the inner city communities around 96 Street.  In the past two years we have experiences a 35% increase in the number of breakfasts being served and our faithful teams of volunteers have met the challenge . . . until recently.
 Several of our breakfast volunteers are retiring.  They are turning eighty or are already over 80 years of age, and they have indicated it is time to retire.  We are especially in need of volunteers for Wednesday mornings.  The hours are from 6:30 to 9:00 am weekly.  Our greatest need is for someone who can serve as cook, working the grill to make the pancakes.  Other meal preparation tasks include mixing pancake batter, making pots of oatmeal porridge, making coffee, and setting up bussing stations. Someone to come from 9:00 to 11:00 am to work on cleanup would also help.
We need a van or truck owner/driver for weekly pickup of food items from either the Edmonton or Sherwood Park Food Banks.  The driver must also be able to lift boxes of food.  We pay for the kilometres travelled.  We also need individuals to be a helper and go with the driver to help pickup food, again must be able to lift boxes of food.
 Another opportunity to serve is on our board as Treasurer.  The Rock requires a certified or experienced accountant who can volunteer for this position.  Knowledge of charity accounting is preferred.  Duties include:  review of data entry, providing the board with quarterly financial reports (Sage 50 software), handling year-end requirements and adjustments, and several other related tasks and reports as required throughout the year.
