Volunteer Opportunities

Heartside Ministry

“The only gift is a portion of thyself.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Heartside Ministry could not be what it is, or do what it does, without our dedicated volunteers. Ministry programs, including the Heartside Gallery & Studio, rely on dedicated volunteers who build relationships and foster a sense of community with our neighbors. Time offered by our volunteers makes a huge impact in the lives of our neighbors and is a precious gift indeed.

Some of our opportunities are listed below. If you are interested in joining our committed, compassionate team, please e-mail or call 616-235-7211.
