A message from our Director of Family Ministries, Elisa Reece:
Our Children and Youth programs are tremendously active! I am so blessed to be a part of this great ministry. There are many ways to invest in their spiritual journey, which will change their lives. Here’s how you can partner with us by volunteering with the following opportunities:
We need your help by decorating a trunk, managing a game, bounce house attendants, popping popcorn, welcoming our families, and lots and lots of extra candy! There are orange tubs located in the atrium and outside the sanctuary to receive candy (individually wrapped).
Sunday Nights at Mulberry!
We need your spiritual gifts loving on our youth & Kidz! Here are some ways to help out:
Youth Group (6th -12th) from 5pm – 7pm – Sundays
We need your help! Two adult chaperones for the Youth Group each Sunday night. Chaperones should arrive early and be ready to greet the youth by 4:50. You may help with games and activities, but you do not need to plan the lesson.
Kidz for Christ (Children’s programming) from 5pm-7pm – Sundays
I know you love Kidz, so our new programming for children on Sunday nights is also looking for someone to tell a bible story, do a craft, sing a song, play music, serve a meal, or teach a science lesson. This rotational concept is like vacation Bible school year around. The lessons are easily understood and taught. Leaders will rotate once a month.
Also, our Sunday Night Youth and Kidz programming serves a snack supper each week. We are needing individuals or a group once a month to provide this small, simple meal. Plan to feed 25-30. Simple meals like sandwiches, tacos, breakfast, chili, spaghetti, and pizza are popular…but get creative. Drinks and paper products are provided. This meal will be split between the youth and children.
There are slots for one Youth Parent and one Kidz Parent to sign up each week for meals, but you can sign up for either! For example, if two Youth parents want to sign up to provide a meal for the whole group, that’s great! If you would like to donate money to purchase a meal, please indicate that in the comments section, as well as if you can assist as a chaperone for youth or a leader for Kidz for Christ. Please include your contact information.
