Children’s Religious Education Our children’s RE program is volunteer-driven and because we insist upon two sets of adult eyes in each classroom, we have on-going opportunities to serve. Being a classroom assistant requires no prep time. They assist with classroom activities, stories, and participating in discussion. Our teachers receive excellent, easy to use lesson plans that are well received by the students. Volunteering one or two Sundays would be of great benefit to our children. Contact Lisa Lawrence at if you can help in any capacity.
We continue to need some volunteers to set up for the social hour after Sunday service. Team 1; Prep will put out the adult and kid’s treats. Set up coffee and tea services. Team 2; coffee will make the coffee and clean the pots. Team 3; Load DW, wipe down tables, put up left over treats. It is my hope and vision to have rotating teams of volunteers within each category. You can volunteer for more than one team. If you are willing and able to volunteer, please contact Danean Mitchell at 623-546-6050. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
