Children’s Ministry is in need of 2 new Seeds Teachers (2-3 year old class). This role is served 1x per month and involves following the class schedule—playing, reading a story/verse, snack, coloring, and a large muscle activity. There is no regular planning involved. Please let Lisa or Megan know if this is a place you would like to serve!
