Children's Ministry Volunteers

Our children's ministries offer many opportunities to serve. Whether you can serve all year, or just for a single event, we'd love to find a place where you can use your spiritual gifts to build up the next generation.

All volunteers who work with minors must undergo a background check and commit to our child protection policy.

If you have questions, contact Julie Speers.


Awana is a fun, high-energy club where kids study and memorize Scripture, play team games, and enjoy special activities throughout the school year.

Our children’s choirs meet during the school year from 7:00–8:30 pm on the Wednesday night of Home Fellowship weeks, typically twice a month.

The nursery is both a service to parents and the initial phase of our Children’s Ministry. As the children grow, we introduce them to foundational truths like “the Bible is true” and “God is good.” We also begin to train them to participate in more formal class structures, with times of singing and short biblical stories.

To get involved, contact Jennifer Stonecipher or sign up online.
