Our Sunday morning Religious Education classes are taught by members of our congregation. In our church of more than 200 members, more than 60 people volunteer in the program annually, giving their time, good work, and friendship and receiving many blessings (and hugs) in return.
Volunteers sign up in the spring for the following school year to be teacher, teaching assistant, childcare provider, or youth advisor. Teams are formed, with about six teachers and six assistants per class; each team member commits to working in the classroom about five Sundays during the year.
Volunteers are also utilized for our OWL program. Specialized training is needed to be an OWL facilitator. Please talk with the DRE for more details about volunteering in this program.
Our church Safe Congregation Policy requires that all volunteers who work with children and youth have a current Code of Ethics Form signed and on file in the Director of Religious Education’s office as well as a completed background check.
