MOMENT FOR MISSION FOR ONE ON ONE TEAM MEMBERS
We have a dedicated group of members who make up the One on One team. These volunteers serve our children who have special needs.
This group was started because we recognized that several children in our Church family need a one on one mentor. Someone to travel with them during their time at Church.
The team members:
- help keep the child engaged in the lesson at a level appropriate for them
- give the child one on one instructions for the classroom activities
- and they ensure the environment is a safe and effective learning space for everyone.
Our goal is to help the child have a good experience in Sunday School, Children’s Church, Wednesday night Bible classes and Vacation Bible School. We want the parents to be able to attend classes and church services without worrying about their child.
We need more people to come alongside the current team in order to provide the coverage that we need. If we can grow the team, then members will be able to serve once every four to six weeks providing one-on-one with one specific child.
New team members meet with the current mentors and the parents in order to learn how to best help our children.
Would you consider serving with this part of the body of Christ? Let Ann Knight know if this ministry is a good fit for you. She will be happy to work with you in becoming part of the One on One team.
We asked Carol Hardin why she teaches Children’s Church. Here’s what she said:
“To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness.” (Ps. 89:1) Teaching Children’s Church at Rivermont has been a wonderful opportunity for me these past few years to help make known God’s faithfulness to our little 4-6 year olds.
Ann Knight, Director of Children’s Ministries, graciously provides the prepared lessons early the previous week, which allows me time to focus on meditating on the Bible passage, pray for the children and our teaching team, and think of additional fun ways to enhance the lesson. The children are a delight, and I simply desire to be an instrument of Jesus’s love, grace and truth while teaching them.
Since Children’s Church teachers are only asked to commit to teach one time a month, that gives me plenty of flexibility to also help with other Sunday ministries or to travel to spend time with my own children and grandchildren in other states. More volunteers are needed to help with Children’s Church, and I encourage you to prayerfully consider whether the Lord is calling you to assist with this ministry."
Please email Ann Knight at the church office to find out more information or to volunteer.
