What does volunteering in Kids Ministry look like?

  • Teachers are expected to lead and facilitate classes: kids worship time, bible lessons and bible memorization.
  • Assistants are expected to help the teacher in their role, lead small group activities and manage the classroom environment.
  • All volunteers are expected to welcome and engage with the children, build relationships and be ready to share the gospel and their faith as opportunities arise. Additionally, all volunteers should be punctual and help with set-up and clean-up to ensure our Kids spaces are safe and welcoming for families.
