We love children in Children's Ministry but we also love our adult volunteers. If you have a heart for children, perhaps you could see yourself filling one of the roles listed below. Check out the possibilities below and contact Megan Holliday for more information and to sign up!
On-going/Behind the Scenes
Supply Room Organizer
Otherwise known as “Closet Angel!” Responsible for keeping the supply room organized. Straightens up every week or every other week as needed (1/2 hour or so), does a thorough clean once or twice a year.
Each week checks the list in the supply room for needed supplies; purchases items listed; submits receipts for reimbursement.
Children’s Ministry Team
This is the backbone of Children’s Ministry. Members commit to attending monthly meetings to review Children’s Ministry activities within the church; pray for Children’s Ministry; set policy and assist the Children’s Ministry Director as needed; support CM activities as a volunteer either in preparation for an event or during an event as able. All are members of
Kid's Church Leader
Kid's Church Co-Leader
The helper is responsible for assisting the Leader during Kid's Church. This includes, but is not limited to, taking attendance, motivating children to participate, and assisting in discipline. This is a rotational position: each co-leader is expected to attend two Sundays every six weeks.
Assists the Nursery Caregiver once a month by playing with children; changing diapers, etc. This is a school-year commitment.
Kids in Worship Story Teller
This teacher serves on a rotating basis (approx. one Sunday per month) during the 10:30am worship service. The storyteller reviews the “script” to present a Bible story using simple wooden and fabric story pieces. The goal is to become so much a part of the story that you draw the children to experience the story. The storyteller also facilitates the response time when children choose a specific activity to do independently. Storytellers are members of
The goal for Kids in Actions is for the 5th & 6th grade students to be in charge and develop leadership skills. Therefore, the main responsibility of the KIA adult leader is to over see the 5th & 6th grade student leaders. From the sidelines you make suggestions or give encouragement as appropriate. This is a school year commitment.
Annual Event Positions
Volunteers come during the last two weeks of August to help clean out cupboards in the classrooms and stock the rooms with necessary supplies. No commitment is necessary, any time given is appreciated.
Director of Children’s Christmas Program
Researches possible programs and organizes classes to provide a way for children to celebrate the Birth of Christ with the church family (could be musical or other). Planning for this would probably begin in the fall.
Beginning in November, the Summer Program Director meets with the CM Director to help select the event type and dates for
LOTS of helpers are needed to work as available the month before and especially the week before to prepare for the summer event; attend training meeting; be at church every day the week of the event; assist leaders and/or help children move between learning areas or in assigned classrooms. Loving kids is a must! All who volunteer in a station-leader position are to be members of
