Family Ministry Volunteer Roles
SMALL GROUP LEADERS
Small Group Leaders lead their “few” (about 8-10 kids in grade-specific groups such as pre-K, K/1st, 2nd/3rd, and pre-teen) each Sunday while looking for opportunities to invest in their few throughout the week. We’ll provide everything you need from outlines to curriculum guides to supplies. All you do is show up, be present, create a safe place for your few, let them know they are loved by God, and lead them through the activities which reinforce the truths which we hope aid them as they grow in their relationship with Christ.
Are you someone interested in being a Small Group Leader (SGL) but not sure your schedule allows you to serve on a weekly basis? Then serving as a SUPER SUB might be the perfect fit for you! Our team of Super Subs fill in for our SGLs when for whatever reason they cannot be there. Things come up from time to time, so having a team of Super Subs to back up our amazing SGLs is critical for success in Village Kids!
So are you the kind of person who doesn’t hesitate to engage students or kids when they walk in a room? Is the thought of standing on a stage and kicking off a morning with a room full of students something that sounds fun and invigorating to you? Then serving as a Host might be the perfect fit for you! Our team of fun-loving, energetic, and outgoing hosts help welcome and guide kids throughout the morning in Village Kids!
In Village Kids worship, we sing upbeat songs with song motions and lyric videos made to engage students of all ages! If you are someone who loves worship music, moving to the beat, and waving your hands in the air like you just don’t care, then we would love to have you as a Songleader in Village Kids! And you don’t even have to be a great singer! We have experts on tracks who do that!
Computers, lighting, and audio, oh my! If these are things that get your blood pumping, then we have a place for you on our Tech team in Village Kids! Our team of techies help navigate the morning upstairs in terms of running songs, playing videos, turning on mics, turning down lights, etc. And for those of us who aren’t so technically-apt, we are forever grateful for our talented Tech team!
From when they very first arrive to when they head upstairs to join small group, we want every parent, child and student to feel welcomed and safe in Village Kids! So if you are someone who LOVES meeting new people and welcoming newcomers, then we would love to have you serve as a Greeter in Village Kids! Our Greeters are often the very first impression families have of both Village Kids and Village Church, which is why we think our team of Greeters are a critical part of Sunday mornings in Village Kids!
Is hanging with teens your jam? Do you find that you connect easily with students? Do you have a heart for what students and teens are challenged with during these critical and often formative years on their faith journey? Then we would love for you to consider joining our youth ministry which we call HUB on Sunday evenings! Our hope is that we can walk alongside students as they grow in their relationship with Jesus from wherever they are right now.
ADULTS NEED NOT APPLY! Because this is all about providing our YOUTH with opportunities to serve in Village Kids! Because our goal for students in grades 6th-12th is that they would find an area of Village Kids to serve in for one service time on Sunday mornings and then attend main service before or after. This gives students the opportunity to invest in and serve while also experiencing main service. And our younger kids love seeing older students serving in their area! There are a multitude of areas to serve in from running tech to assisting small groups to greeting families as they arrive… there is something for everyone and we’ll find the perfect fit for you!
FIRST LOOK BABIES & TODDLERS
As a parent, there is nothing quite like handing your baby or toddler to a nursery volunteer and KNOWING they will be cared for and loved on well. That is exactly the kind of experience we want to offer new moms and dads as they bring their littlest family members to our First Look Nursery. If caring for babies is just part of your DNA, then we would love to have you serve as a volunteer in our Nursery. Warning… you DO have to give them back!
FIRST LOOK PRE-K
Preschoolers are inquisitive and love exploring the world around them. They love being engaged with the worship videos, bible stories, and activities our leaders use every week! If you enjoy creating a safe space for 3- and 4-year-olds to explore while learning how much God loves them, our PreK group is a great fit for you. Our supplies team does all the prep for you - all you have to do is show up and dive right in with the kids!
We love offering families whatever they need to ensure each child/student not only enjoys his/her time in Village Kids, but THRIVES in it. Sometimes simply offering a dedicated volunteer for a child or student ensures that he/she feels safe and cared for and can have their specific needs met during their time in Village Kids.
