There are many hands and hearts that go into a children’s ministry throughout the year. Consider being a part of that ministry and receive the great reward of seeing children responding to God’s love - Serve with our Xtreme Kids Shepherding Team.
What serving positions are available?
We are always in need of classroom shepherds and assistants to help lead our Xtreme Kids Sunday program. At the bottom of this page you will find a link to our sign-up page which lists our current availability. There are also some "behind-the-scenes" opportunities to serve as well.
How long are the serving terms?
Each shepherd is committing to teaching once-a-month during the school year.
What happens if I have to miss a Sunday or two during my volunteer term?
No worries. We are all trying our best to balance all of our family activities. The beauty of having four shepherds per class is that fining another shepherd willing to switch weeks is usually an easy fix. Should a switch in the scheduled weeks not work, we can also reach out to our substitute roster.
I would like serve as a substitute.
If you would like to serve but can't commit to a full term, please consider being added to our list of substitute shepherds. Substitute shepherds are called upon to teach in the absence of the regularly assigned shepherd. As a substitute you will be given as much advance notice of our need for you as possible, sometimes that is a month or more in advance, sometimes a week, and occasionally it may even be the "day of.” Your flexibly is key to jumping in and saving the day!
Is there a lot of prep work that I must do before teaching each Sunday?
Nope. Our program curriculum is electronically saved and accessible when you want it. Everything you need, including the prayers, discussion questions, and activities are provided for you. Take a look at the lesson electronically and know that all of the copies, printouts, and supplies will be ready for you on Sunday morning. It couldn't be easier!
I want to serve, but I know nothing about teaching.
First of all, don't worry! You don't have to have a teaching license to teach a Sunday school class. Instead, all you need is a love for the Lord and for His children. If you have this, you are good to go. Still a bit nervous because you don't know the Bible backwards and forwards? Again, don't worry! Our easy-to-use curriculum tells you what to read in your Bible to familiarize yourself with the Bible story. It also provides discussion questions with answers for each lesson.
Do I have to attend weekly or monthly meetings to be a Sunday school teacher?
No, there are no meetings to attend to be a Sunday school teacher. We will only have one inservice at the beginning of the year to help prepare you and familiarize yourself with the curriculum. Jumping in during the year? Not a problem; our Children's Ministry Coordinator will get you up to speed and prepared to join in the fun.
I would like to serve, but what do I do with my infant/toddler?
If you would like to volunteer but feel you can't because you have an infant or toddler, consider using our nursery, which is available every Sunday during the Sunday school hour.
I have a question that wasn't answered here. Where do I go for help?
