The primary responsibility of this part-time position (5 hours weekly during the school year) is to lead
age specific sections of our Children’s Chapel ministry for children ages 3 through 4th grade.
Children’s Chapel (Chapel) helps children ages 3 through 4th grade to experience the wonder of worship within a lively, child friendly setting. Chapel will focus on a variety of expressions of worship using many forms of music, art, and hands on activities. Chapel will occur during our 10:30 am worship service following our Time with Young Disciples and will be approximately 40 minutes in length. This creative and energetic worship education experience for children will model growth in their journey toward discipleship so that they can learn ‘rituals’ of Christian worship.
