Children's Worship Bag Preparation

Worship bags are available at several Sanctuary entrances and contain colors, stickers, and other various crafts to provide children tools to express what they are learning during the service. Weekly, we need adults to clean out and restock the Sunday Worship Bags for the children who attend worship. When you sign up to prepare bags for a specific Sunday, please remember that you have the entire week prior to this date to come in and prepare the bags. Feel free to sign up for as many weeks as you would like! For a fantastic way to encourage children to be an active member of our Sunday worship congregation, please sign up for the dates you can volunteer via the Signup Genius link.

Share the love of God with the children of FUMCR. Teachers are needed each Sunday for 3 year olds - 5th graders.

Volunteers can select their own schedule: teach every first Sunday or teach every Sunday for the month of November. The possibilities are many!
