KIDZ Ministry Volunteer Opportunities

LifeGroups

LifeGroups are small groups in which kids can grow in their faith and knowledge of Scripture. These learning times are led by amazing volunteers who disciple and pour in to children from preschool to preteen with interactive Bible teaching and fun!

Director
A KIDZ LifeGroup director serves weekly or every other week and is in charge of the class, making sure everything runs smoothly, communicating with Small Group leaders, and contacting families and kids to build relationships and make sure they know what is going on in the KIDZ Ministry.

Small Group Leader
This volunteer leads a small group of children weekly or every other week in fun activities and discussion about the lesson. Small Group leaders disciple and pour in to the lives of students in every area. This role is vital in the life of a child, as the leader walks alongside parents, helping their child develop an authentic faith.

Special Friends Buddy
These incredible volunteers assist our Special Friends within our inclusion classrooms and Special Friends Suite. The role of a Special Friends Buddy is to provide support and encouragement to help our Special Friends grow and connect with peers in an appropriate setting.

AWANA

AWANA is a Wednesday night club for kids (age 3–grade 6). Each evening is comprised of three parts: Handbook Time, Game Time and Council Time. The main focus is learning to memorize Scripture, sharing our faith with the people in our lives, and helping others around the world through missions. Class leaders mentor the kids, encouraging them in handbook progression and helping them to stay engaged. The class leaders keep track of paperwork, attendance, awards and weekly communication with the kids’ families.

Kids’ Worship Choirs

Each Wednesday, Prestonwood Kids’ Worship gives children (ages 3–grade 6) the opportunity to begin learning to praise the Lord using the many gifts He has given, including singing, motions, drama, games and other fun opportunities. Volunteers help guide and encourage the children to use their gifts in worshipping the Lord.

KIDZ CREW is a Wednesday night worship service geared to engage and equip students (grades 1–3). In this fun-filled time of games, prizes, theme nights, food, worship and relevant teaching, leaders serve food, play games, model a worshipful spirit, and lead a small group.
