Would you like to be more involved in the student ministry but don’t necessarily want to teach Sunday school or lead a small group every Wednesday night? Well, here are some new ways to connect.
Host Home for House Groups
House Groups meet Sunday nights from 5:00pm – 6:15pm. The general outline for the night will be games, snack food, and a short lesson. Host homes are responsible for providing the food and the fun. I can help with the fun if you need it. (Cornhole, 9square, other games)
We are looking for six parents to open their homes. Email Patrick @ email@example.com if you are interested in hosting a House Group.
We currently have created three Ministry Teams to serve students and teach students to serve others. They are the Hospitality Team, Serve Team, and Welcome Team. The Ministry Teams are based around various needs we have within the student ministry or in our community.
The Serve Team was created to give students the opportunity to serve in their community and church. We are looking for a few parents to sponsor serve events. By sponsoring a serve event, you would plan, organize, and lead a service project of your choice. Once the details are in place, we would encourage the students to sign up and go serve. This is a great team to pair up with a couple of parents and work together to create great opportunities for our students to serve.
The Hospitality Team is centered on the newly remodeled youth lounge. By serving on the Hospitality Team, you can set up, tear down, or serve on a Wednesday night. We will need adults to sell food and drinks, make food (pies, cakes, cookies), and create a welcoming atmosphere. We hope to open the youth lounge on Thursday afternoons to give students a place to hang out and do homework. We need workers during this time as well. We will even need adults to potentially shop for us to keep the youth lounge stocked.
The Welcome Team is essentially the first impression of our ministry to guests and regular attenders. This teams primary responsibility will be on Wednesday night, getting kids checked in and registering guests. This team would provide reports to small group leaders on the attendance of students so that leaders can follow-up. They would also create procedures for how to best connect with new guests. The goal is to never let a student fall through the cracks and miss an opportunity for ministry.
If serving on one of these teams seems like something you would be interested, please email Patrick @ firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be an informational meeting to talk more about the teams and how to get involved.
