Serving in Children’s Ministry
We desire for every child we encounter to know they are seen, for them to be known, and for them to know they are loved by Jesus and his Church. Adults and teens serve in a variety of ways in Children’s Ministry to ensure children are seen, known, and loved.
Small Group Leaders
Leaders facilitate a fun and safe place for children to experience the Gospel and love of Jesus. All you have to do is show up. Activities, crafts, discussions and games are all set up for your classroom. Children spend time in a large gathering for teaching and then you will lead a smaller group in a discussion of the lesson. Crafts and games reinforce what was just taught.
Small Group Leaders choose to serve in one of the following groups and will be assigned to a specific grade/age.
- Nursery: 6 weeks – 2K
- Pre School: 3K & 4K
- Elementary School: 5K – 5th Grade
- Every other Sunday for those leading 5K-5th grade
- One Sunday each month for Nursery and Pre School leaders
- August – May
- 8:50 am – 10:10 am for the 9 am service
- 10:35 am – 11:45 am for the 10:45 am service
Children’s Ministry Greeters
Greeters serve every other Sunday by greeting families, assisting them in checking in, and answering questions.
- Every other Sunday
- 8:45 am – 9:15 am for the 9 am service
- 10:30 am – 11 am for the 10:45 am service
Expectations in Children’s Ministry
We have very limited time with our kids each week, so your commitment to be there when scheduled means we can maximize the impact we have in their lives.
See Our Children
We want every child to feel as if they are seen and so we endeavor to greet every child that comes in our doors. It could be a high five, fist bump, or just a smile and a word of greeting.
Know Our Children
We expect small group leaders to learn the names of the children who are regular attenders. You will learn their stories and by doing so you will be able to speak the Gospel into their lives.
Love Our Children
Teach children they are loved by Jesus by first loving our children. We have no expectation that the children who walk in our doors know Jesus. Our role is to embrace them where they are in relation to the Gospel and move them closer to Jesus.
