Ways to Join the Children’s Ministry Team
With school beginning in just a few short weeks, summer will quickly come to an end. We are planning our programming for children this upcoming school year and want you to consider how you can work with us to create a vibrant ministry. There are a number of volunteer opportunities. Please read through these and find a place you feel your talents can best be used. We would love to see all families represented in our ministry. Just like most ministries, you will find you get much more back than you could ever give. Please prayerfully consider your role.
Sunday Morning Kids Quest Mentor: This crucial role is on the front lines of ministry with children. These individuals come each Sunday, building relationship with the children and sharing the Good News. Mentors use lessons to follow up the main lesson taught in large group. All lessons and materials are provided; you only need to bring a servant’s heart and love for God and children. Men, we need YOU to lead our boy groups. Time requirement includes 1 hour 15 minutes on Sunday morning and about 15 minutes of prep each week. We understand work and travel and will have substitutes for these occasions. Please contact Lisa Pierce if you are interested in this role.
Sunday Morning Kids Quest Host: These individuals assist mentors with lessons and kid control each week. This is a month-long commitment and is incredibly important to the success of each lesson. Please register online using Sign Up Genius. (Consider signing up for more than one month.)
Sunday Morning Stepping Stones Teachers: These individuals present the weekly small-group lesson in the preschool classes. After large group time, each group will return to their classroom for the small group lesson. All lessons and materials are provided. The length of commitment is one month. Please contact Kristin Dickerson to volunteer for this ministry.
Grace Class Leader: Grace is our class designed for elementary-aged children with special needs. We need teachers for this class as well as shadows to go with children if they chose to enter the Kids Quest program. Volunteers can either serve for one month or once a month for the school year; commitment is about one hour 15 minutes each week. All materials and training are provided.
Elementary Expedition Small Group Leader: These individuals will join us on Wednesday nights for dinner, worship, and small group. We will begin at 5:30 with dinner in the Huddle, move to the chapel for worship, and then break into small groups and games. We will end at 7:15. All lessons and materials are provided. This is a semester commitment running for 10 weeks (excluding fall break and ending at Thanksgiving for the semester). We will resume in January and run up to spring break. Please contact Lisa Pierce if you are interested in helping with this ministry. (If you are not able to make it in time for the dinner, you are welcome to join us at 6:00 for the rest of the evening.)
Elementary Expedition Food Prep: These individuals purchase and prepare the meal for Elementary Expedition (Wednesday night) each week. The meals are very “kid-friendly” including favorites such as chicken nuggets, pizza, hot dogs, etc. No big-time cooking is necessary, just heating and serving. Time commitment each week is approximately one hour for purchase of food and two hours for preparing/serving/cleaning up. This job could be divided if multiple people work together. This is also a wonderful way for a Sunday school class to serve. Please contact Lisa Pierce if you are interested in serving in this ministry area.
Kids Quest Band Leader: This person needs to be willing to organize and rehearse with a group of youth each week (scheduled at your convenience). The band will present two songs each week and will include a guitar, drums, and vocalist (minimally). This person does not need to serve on Sunday mornings. Please contact Lisa Pierce if you are interested in working in this ministry area.
Kids Quest Environment Prep Team: Our curriculum has monthly themes which require environment changes and props. This team will develop the environment each month for our theme as well as assemble props for the weekly stories. This will require about five hours a month and is not a Sunday morning commitment. Please contact Lisa Pierce or Callie Beaver if you are interested in helping in this ministry area.
