Security Check-In Team
Our check-in team makes positive first impressions with kids and their parents. We are looking for friendly people who feel comfortable on a laptop computer and have excellent key board skills. This team truly helps us connect with our families who come each week.
Counter supervisor is the "Mommy" of our department. This person will be on call throughout service to assist classroom teachers with children who need extra love, a paged parent, or anything that might come up in the classroom. This person is also responsible for filling in the numbers of children and adults for each service in out service stats.
The worship leaders for Kid's Zone are individuals who love to encourage our young ones to praise the Lord! Leading worship will include singing, hand motions, interacting with children, and possibly interacting with puppets if you are comfortable with them!

Curriculum Info for Volunteers
The curriculum we use is called First Look. First impressions are important. That's why First Look curriculum is designed to give preschool children a first impression of their loving Heavenly Father. The curriculum keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. First Look also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time. It encourages children to talk to God any time at any place.
The activities tickle all the senses making mastering the concepts a blast. Crazy fun activities to crafts to Bible story and worship, it's all part of the plan to help a child believe three key things by the time he's five years old:
- God made me
- God loves me
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever
But all the simple fun of First Look means little if it's not reinforced at home. That's why we provide activity ideas and conversation starters for parents to use with their children at home using the Small Talk cards.
Click here to hear the vision behind First Look curriculum from the creator himself.
An e-mail is sent out each week to all volunteers teaching children ages 2 through Pre-K containing the curriculum plan for the week's services. If you are currently a volunteer and do not receive this e-mail, please contact Audrey at email@example.com
