We are In Need of Volunteers!
Children:
One of the most vital ministries to the life of the church is the children’s ministry, and we need your help to keep this ministry going. Laurel Bradford has offered to volunteer to lead the children’s component in the interim and we need adults to help fill the classrooms! And the good news is…all the background work is done! If you volunteer, you will have lesson plans, curriculum, and even the materials you need to lead FirstKids. All you need to do is show up and show our children the love of Jesus Christ. There will also be a brief training before Sept. 6th so you will know exactly what you will be teaching!
Youth:
We are in need of two adults to teach the youth portion of our Wednesday evening programming. We will be offering the BASIC series by Francis Chan. This is a video led bible study where we will discuss who God is and what it means to be the church. This is for any students from 6th thru 12th grade who would like to attend a Wednesday evening Bible Study.
If you are interested in helping with children or youth, please contact pastor Bryan at the church office.
