Volunteering In Grow Zone
We are a ministry that is completely run by our volunteers. Nothing would get done without them, and we are so grateful for each and every member filling each and every role. If you'd like to become part of the Grow Zone volunteer team, you can find out about the different roles below. Then just CLICK HERE to fill out an interest form.
This position is perfect for someone who is interested in serving every week, as consistency plays a key role in developing relationships with the children and families.
For children 1 year old and younger: We use this time to have fun, sing songs, and play. Everything we do during our time in the classroom is meant to make parents feel safe and make children feel loved.
For children 2 years old and up: We have prepared lesson plans that teachers are given, which include a story, craft, activity, and worship time. The children have lots of fun and they learn something at the same time!
(And if you can't commit to every week, but you still love serving in a classroom group setting, you can always be on our Sub List! When a volunteer is out, we will contact you and see if you can jump in that week!)
SET UP OR TEAR DOWN
As a mobile campus, we have lots of equipment that needs to be set up and taken down each week. Believe it or not, many of our "Crew" as we call them, say that set up and/or tear down is their favorite part of the day, where you really get to know people quickly and feel like you are truly working together as a team. No experience or expertise necessary!
FRONT DESK CHECK-IN
You're the first impression, the smiling face, and the welcoming interaction that makes our families feel right at home. We use a simple check-in system on our computers that helps you get each child checked into their appropriate group. If you're good with names and have a welcoming personality, you are an ideal candidate!
It is important for parents of young children to know that we prioritize safety. Our safety team members help ensure that only people who belong in Grow Zone will be in those area. They help welcome our families, high five the kids, and make sure our area is safe and fun.
This position is a little different, but something we love to offer! The Clubhouse is an environment for kids (ages 5- 5th grade) to hang out in after they have already attended GZ or TI once that morning, but they are still sticking around church because their parents are volunteering somewhere or are in a class or meeting. This is a space where we just focus on having fun and building relationships. There are no lesson plans, just toys and games and lots of laughter! You can serve once a month or every week... we can work around your schedule!
