FFC2023 - Blog Post - October 5

You already know this, but I am going to say it anyway: First Free enjoys a Christ-centered, engaging, multi-faceted, safe children's ministry to God's glory and by His grace!

Through many volunteers' consistent and generous service, we offer a free and excellent Awana program on Wednesday nights from September through May for children in our church and community. We also serve families with Sunday School, Junior Church, and a nursery almost every weekend, year-round. Beyond these, First Free offers popular, high-energy, week-long summer outreaches - Summer Blast and Pop - and special events like our occasional Family Movie Matinee. 

We know that God uses these ministry environments to guide children from our church and communities into becoming healthy followers of Jesus Christ! What an amazing grace and fantastic privilege!

With that in mind, I want to remind you that none of these ministries happen without safe, reliable volunteers who love God and the children entrusted to our care. As parents of children blessed by this ministry, we especially want and need you! 

We want to add several more members to the First Free Kids Team! Right now, we're trusting God to provide several new team members for Sunday mornings, each serving only once a month:

  • Junior Church helpers 
  • Sunday School helpers
  • Nursery workers

"Helpers" don't lead Junior Church or Sunday School classes. Instead, they come alongside teachers and children, helping ensure the safety and effectiveness of gatherings as assistants. The time commitment is minimal, but the contribution is substantial. 

Of course, all children and student ministry volunteers, staff members, and elected church officers must complete background checks and online "Ministry Safe" training. Children's and student ministry volunteers must also read and agree to abide by their ministry's "safe practices" policies. As a First Free Kids Team member, we will help you fulfill each of these requirements swiftly, covering all associated costs.

Please let Marie Zajdel, Beth Jewel, or Michelle Washington know you're willing to join the team! We want and need you!
