SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Back in June, Meridian Magazine provided information about a Church-sponsored online volunteer site called Simply Serving. The purpose of this site was to provide opportunities where members around the world could volunteer their time and talents to the Church online.

Since then, the Simply Serving site has been given a new look and a new name. Now coined as “Helping in the Vineyard” or “The Vineyard” (vineyard.lds.org), the site provides opportunities for members of the Church to serve by working on projects that interest them.

By simply creating a personal profile, anyone can access a number of tasks such as updating Church publications, media tagging, document translation, and video editing.  The great part about it is that it only takes about five minutes to complete one task. All you need is an Internet connection, computer, or web-capable phone to get started.

Before the site is officially launched to the membership of the Church, the Vineyard team is looking for individuals to help test volunteer activities for the Church publications group. Specifically, they are looking for individuals to participate in page break, paragraph matching, or paragraph comparison activities to ensure that the system is functioning appropriately.  The Vineyard Team has a goal of completing over 3,000 Church publications tasks by mid-February.

If you are interested in participating in this initiative, simply login to the website by clicking this link: Helping in the Vineyard. From there, you can create a Vineyard login and access the Church publications opportunities from the site.
