 We Need Your Help Minimize

Children’s Ministry Team
Hard to believe that summer’s over!  Soon, the third floor will be teeming with activity as our youngest members return to Sunday School and Wednesday Night Live activities.  For our children’s ministry program to be successful, we need the support of the adults in our church.  That’s where you come in.  WE NEED HELP!

The Children’s Ministry Team is looking for adult volunteers to help in the classroom on both Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.  Specifically, we need lead teachers, classroom assistants and substitute teachers.  There are opportunities to work with children age 3 years through 6th grade.  Curriculum is provided and members of the Children’s Ministry Team are available to mentor/shadow/advise until you feel comfortable with your role.  

Sunday School runs 10:00 – 10:50 a.m.  We do request that lead teachers and classroom assistants commit to the entire year, with the understanding that coverage will be provided for times when you have to be away. 

Wednesday Night Live classroom time is 6:55 – 7:30 p.m.  The Wednesday night curriculum and schedule are very flexible.  If you’re only available one Wednesday a month or would like to team teach with a friend, we can work around your schedule.  

You don’t need to be an “educator”.  You don’t need formal classroom training.  What you need is a love of children and a desire to make a difference in their lives.  It’s as simple as that!  Children of all ages benefit from a loving relationship with adults of all ages.  And vice versa.  Whether you’re 20-something with no children or a grandparent, if you’re feeling called to help, we have a spot for you!  Please contact Kristin Pawlowski (Pawlowskik@Urbandaleschools.com), Kathy Jacobson (jacobsonk@wdmcs.org) or any other member of the Children’s Ministry Team.

 The Word Minimize

And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water; and the eunuch said, "See, here is water! What doth hinder me from being baptized?" And Philip said, "If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

Acts 8:36-37 (KJ21)
