DESCRIPTIONS

2-year-old Class Helper

Time commitment: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

Provide care for sweet and curious 2-year-olds who are just beginning to learn about the world around them and how much God loves them! Help the main teacher keep them engaged during the lesson and assist with crafts when needed. No planning or preparation required! Your main job is to explore and play with them!


3 & 4-year-old Class Helper (during worship)

Time commitment: 9:25-11:00 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1-2

Get to know super bright, funny, and engaging 3 and 4-year-olds! They have a zest for life and want to know ALL about it, and they love learning about God and the Bible! Be a part of their life story by being present and helping their faith journey grow. The Class Helper (worship) assists the teacher with crafts, games, activities, and making worship a fun and meaningful time for these little people. No planning or preparation required! Just be there ready to laugh, love, and have fun!


3 & 4-year-old Class Helper (during class time)

Time commitment: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

Basically the same as above, only during class time.


3 & 4-year-old Chapel Leader

Time commitment: 9:35-10:00 a.m.

Number needed per Sunday: 1-2 (could be a great ministry for husband & wife or a pair to do together!)

Chapel time for the 3 & 4-year-olds (in the big room on the 2nd floor) is where they hear their Bible story for the day. We sing a few fun songs, and then you convey the day’s Bible story in a fun, engaging way that will catch their attention and help them to connect to the story. It can be through a puppet show, a skit, or just retelling the story in an animated way that 3 & 4-year-olds will relate to. We have materials and ideas for this, but we would absolutely love for you to get creative! They study a new story each week, but throughout the month will be focusing on the same bottom line (i.e., God can help me, etc.).

Signing up to be the Chapel Leader for a month at a time would be ideal! That way you get to know the kids by name, get creative with the stories, and really help the Bible come to life for these precious kiddos.


5-year-old - 1st grade Class Helper

Time commitment: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

In class, the 5-year-olds through 1st graders play games, and do fun activities to reinforce the lesson they’ve learned that morning in Kid’s Worship and talk about how to apply it in their life. Come to the 2nd floor and help the teacher keep kids on task and engaged in their activities while also showing them God’s love! These kids are fun, funny, and energetic, and they are discovering how much God loves them.


2nd & 3rd grade Class Helper

Time commitment: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

This great bunch of 2nd and 3rd graders are beginning to dive a little further into the life application of the stories they’re learning each week. While they hear the overall lesson during Kid’s Worship, class time is where they really figure out what these lessons mean for them personally. Assist the teacher with keeping kids on task while they discuss the day’s lesson and do relatable activities and games.


4th & 5th grade Class Helper

Time commitment: 10:45-11:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

4th and 5th graders are a lot of fun! Like the 2nd and 3rd graders, they are starting to really apply the lessons they’re learning to their lives. They are able to discuss a little more how these things impact them at school, at home, and in the community, and how they can share those things with others. Assist the teacher with any class activities and classroom management.


Kids’ Worship Buddy

Time commitment: 10:15-10:45 a.m. (no prep required!)

Number needed per Sunday: 3-4 (great way for a husband and wife to serve together! Or several members of a small group!)

Come up to the 4th floor when the 5-year-olds through 5th graders are dismissed from the main service and worship for a while, kid-style! We sing fun songs and talk about kid-sized issues and how these awesome young Christ-followers can apply the things they're learning about from the Bible to their everyday lives at school, at home, and in their communities. Sit with them, get to know them, and you might even learn a thing or two from them as well! ALL ages welcome and needed! It's so important for these little people to get to know all of their family in Christ, not just the parents of other kids. We want to nurture and grow these important foundational relationships in our church family! No prep required, just your presence!


Kids’ Worship Assistant

Time commitment: 9:00-9:15 a.m. (prep); 10:15-10:45 a.m. (children’s worship)

Number needed per Sunday: 1

You’ll laugh, they’ll laugh...everyone will have a great time! Come be a part of bringing our lesson to life for our 5-year-olds through 5th graders with a short skit. Kids love skits, and this is a great way to get the day’s lesson across to them. It usually involves a problem that is solved by the end of our worship time in a humorous way. Short scripts are provided. The 9:00-9:15 a.m. time is just to run through the skit so we are prepared.
