There are lots of things to do to minister
to our precious little ones.

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.
There is a great need for Children’s Church volunteers during both services. The lessons are provided each week. Crafts have been prepared and toys are available for playtime after the lesson. Children’s Church helps prepare our little ones for participating in the service. The lesson follows the order of service with Acclamation of Praise, Reading from the scriptures, a Bible lesson and music. The teachers and assistants help the children begin the foundation they need to learn more about our Savior and grow in their faith.
If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact Ann Knight, Director of Children’s Ministries.
EQUIPPING PARENTS TO LEAD THEIR CHILDREN SPIRITUALLY
AT HOME, EVERY DAY, RIGHT NOW!
Parenting isn't easy, so anytime we can take advantage of teachable moments, we should seize the opportunity! Here's a quick faith-builder idea:
Mealtime Prayers: Many times we race through fast-food windows to keep our children fed when we are on-the-go! Make a habit of thanking God for meals no matter where you're eating - even in the car. Children and parents can take turns saying a special prayer of thanks wherever they are.
