Ready to Get Involved?
You are about to enter a world where you are expected to have loads of fun while digging into God’s Word. We sing, play, learn in an interactive way, and are free to be who God has made us to be. I hope you will consider joining our team and making a difference in the lives of our KIDS!
We believe in kids and work to equip them with Godly tools so they can go into this world and BE the difference.
Kids ministries here at SJA should be,”The place to be” for both kids and leaders. In an atmosphere of energy and expectancy, both leaders and kids will be at the front of the line to experience God’s movement in their world.
My #1 Goal is to sign up and train more teachers. Right now we have openings in all the classes especially– preschool, 1-2nd, 3-4th, and 5-6. My second goal is to create several teams for check-in and check-out so we can rotate them throughout the month.
What We Do
Every time we get together teach the life-challenging truths found in God’s Word. While our approach may differ on Wednesday and Sunday, we look at each gathering as important time to plant God’s Word in the lives of our kids.
Each month has a theme that is rooted in scripture and is illuminated through teaching, memorization and games.
Our curriculum is created around the idea that kids learn better when engaging all their senses in interactive Biblical teaching. We are using the Hands on Bible curriculum.
Nuts and Bolts
As a Kids Ministry volunteer, you will be in a position to work directly with our kids. It is necessary that you are a member of our church (or working in that direction), you have attended for at least one year, be background checked, be available for training, staff meetings, and most of all, ready to work with the kids. I would expect you to take time to pray for our kids on a daily basis as that will prepare your heart for what God wants to do in the kids’ lives through you.
I so appreciate your prayerful consideration to jump in and get involved in this ministry! When you are a part of this team you can enjoy prayerful support from your peers and me. Our staff meetings are a vital part of this ministry as it gives us time as a team to build each other up, grow, and prepare for what is coming. Each staff meeting is important as this is when you will receive your teaching materials. I am here to help facilitate your lesson, so if you find that you need any supplies, let me know in advance and I will have it ready for you. I am also here to help with discipline issues.
While the thought of teaching an entire class may be daunting, there are many other opportunities to help that don’t involve teaching. In the past, we have had volunteers help out at the check-in counter, oversee snack, help out on special events (Easter, Christmas, VBS, special parties and the like), be security on our playground, be a teacher’s helper, and even be our tech support! There are unending possibilities for your involvement.
