Children

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. Check out the Children's page for service opportunities; contact Julie Speers if you have questions.

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