If you find something of interest, you can find the person to contact at the end of each volunteer description.

KIDS MINISTRY

Teachers serve on Sunday mornings for the children in Kid’s Ministry. You will be given a lesson and asked to teach it to about 12-15 children to help them grasp the concept, answers any questions that they may have, and review the Bible verse. Also, there will be a craft or activity to relate to the lesson. After the children get picked up, teachers also help with cleaning up the classroom and putting the supplies away. Contact Hanna Traft at hanna@goodsamaritantallahassee.org for more information.

In order to assist the Sunday morning teachers, we are looking for Shepherds to  help with the lesson, crafts, and snacks. These volunteers will also help clean up the classroom after children are picked up. Contact Hanna at hanna@goodsamaritantallahassee.org for more information.

The floater will help Kid’s Ministry staff and volunteers on Sunday mornings by filling in the gaps (help with snacks, getting communion, help with prepping crafts, or assisting the teachers) and being available for whatever is needed that morning. Floaters may fill in for teachers or shepherds from time to time. Contact Hanna at hanna@goodsamaritantallahassee.org for more information.

This volunteer would make sure that all children are checked in and out by a parent or guardian. The check in/out person would answer basic questions about Kid’s Ministry and make sure no child leaves unattended. Contact Hanna at hanna@goodsamaritantallahassee.org for more information.
