Volunteer Opportunities in Children's Ministry
Children's Ministry would not happen without the help of wonderful adult and youth volunteers. When you volunteer with the Children's Ministry, you not only are helping out, but making a significant impact in a child's faith journey.
If you would like to get involved with the Children's Ministry, please consider helping out in one of the areas below. If you have questions about how we can help fit your gifts into serving in our ministry, please contact a member of the Children's Ministry Staff.
