We're all in different places in our journey. And that's okay. But we ask that those who work in our Preschool and Elementary small groups or have on-stage verbal roles be Christ-followers. There are opportunities regardless of your spiritual orientation.
There are plenty of things you can do, but
PLEASE DO NOT DO THE FOLLOWING:
Leave the room.
Once you arrive, stay until the last kid from your hour leaves.
Bring your own food in the room.
That's just bad manners to eat in front of other people, even if they are little kids.
Use your phone.
You are an important part of the team. Texting does not help the kids or other volunteers in your room, so don't do it.
Check kids out.
Only adult volunteers in the room should do this.
Roughhouse with kids.
Swinging kids by their arms, legs, ears or any other appendages, or tickling. (Yeah really. No tickling.)
Be alone with a kid.
That's not safe for you or the child. You should always be in the room with at least one other volunteer. Do not take a kid alone to the bathroom, resource room or anywhere else.
You're doing great! Almost finished. It will all be worth it once you have your own name tag and all the goldfish you can eat (crackers that is).
I understand that my child has committed to serve. So that I can help make this a fantastic volunteer experience for him or her, I commit to:
PARENT / GUARDIAN INFO
(a small group leader can fill this section out too)
In order to serve, a sponsor from the same team will need to be found. This person will need to be an adult (18 or older) and not a family member. They will be responsible while the teen is serving to ensure they are following the rules including the child abuse prevention policy. If you know who that person will be, enter their info here. If not, we'll help you find someone.
