Volunteer Opportunities

We couldn’t pull off the Backyard Bash each year without the amazing help of volunteers. Please sign-up today to help in the AREAS of food prep, event set-up, drink stations, kid activities, food service, dessert contest and breakdown.

If you are unable to use the sign-up link, please email Reid Lester, 


Cornhole Tournament

We will hold the tournament from 5-6pm. If you’d like to participate, please email Match opponents will be randomly selected. The winners of each match will advance to the next round.


Dessert Contest

We are changing up the Dessert Contest this year. We will accept entries starting at 4pm until 5pm. Tasting bites will be available between 5-6pm for voting. The People’s Choice award will be presented to the dessert with the most votes between 6:30-6:45pm.

Everyone is welcome to submit an entry. There will be a short entry form to complete so we have the details of your dessert. Please be sure to note if your dessert contains nuts and/or dairy or if it meets a special dietary restriction such as gluten free.


Family Ministries Activities

We have fun activities for kids ages 2-11. These include Newcomb, parachute with balls, yard toys, other games, and face painting for the entire event time. Parents will need to supervise their child’s play, as staff will not be present in this capacity.

Bouncy House

Kids are welcome to enjoy the bouncy house, but parental supervision is required. The volunteers monitoring the bouncy house will only be responsible for the number of kids allowed in the house at one time and timing play to allow everyone a chance to play.


Student Ministries Activities

Students are encouraged to participate in the Cornhole Tournament and Ultimate Frisbee.



The Denver Concert Band, sponsored by United Methodist Women, will play from 4-5:30pm.
