CHILDREN'S   MINISTRY   VOLUNTEERS!

Whether you're teaching kids in Sunday School, leading art at VBS, cooking dinner for Club 45, running games at HarvestFest, or coordinating our Christmas Eve Pageant...Kingswood Kids need YOU!!

The most valuable resource we have to help kids see God, is to be the people in the church who show Him.
We're supposed to do what Jesus did...show up in the lives of others so they can see God.
Volunteers invested in the lives of kids, is one of the most important things we can be.

Leaders who connect with kids in a SMALL group over time, have the potential to make a BIG impact on their faith.

What VOLUNTEERS are needed in Children's Ministry?

   

Children's   SUNDAY   SCHOOL...November  

NOVEMBER THEME...Behind the Scenes

The  most  important  part  of  any  play  is  what  happens  “behind  the  scenes.”  There’s  lighting,  wardrobe,  casting,  playwriting — so much has to happen perfectly to bring the production together! In the story of Esther, there is a whole lot going on behind the scenes, too. In this four-week series, kids will discover the most important character in  Esther’s  story  isn’t  always  center-stage,  but  can  often  be  found  behind  the  scenes  working,  helping,  giving  support and giving peace. (Spoiler alert: It’s God!)

SAFE SANCTUARIES TRAINING

God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children and other vulnerable persons. God calls us to create communities of faith where children and adults grow safe and strong.
Safe Sanctuaries is the movement and initiative to fulfill this call upon us.
