Children's Ministry Partnership

By: Danean LeNoir

Are you looking for some meaningful ways to be in ministry with kids ages 7 to 17?
We may have just what you are looking for!

The Need
The Methodist Free congregation provides worship services in Arabic at the Good Shepherd Ministry Center sanctuary. The adults in the congregation speak primarily Arabic. The children are first-generation American and are fluent in English with little Arabic language skills. The church is looking for volunteers to lead a children’s program on Sunday evenings (6:30-8:00pm) for approximately 7 children ages 7 – 17.

The Response
We are looking for a team of volunteers to take turns leading a children’s ministry program for the Methodist Free worship service on Sunday evenings at the Good Shepherd Ministry Center. You’ll be developing relationships with the kids and will be a blessing to parents of this congregation that worships at GSMC. We have met the children and they are eager to learn and are a lot of fun to be with.

Would YOU like to help give this new generation of Christians the opportunity to learn about being the hands and feet of Christ and what it means to live out God’s word?

Sundays 6:30 – 8:00 pm

At GSMC there is a carpeted room with internet, TV screen, large table, chairs and room to play games. The playground can be used as well.

A variety of supplies and materials are available from Foothills UMC children & family ministries.

Number of volunteers per Sunday
We require that there be 2 unrelated adults with the kids each Sunday. Ideally, a team of volunteers will take turns serving each month. Support

Interested leaders will have the support of Danean LeNoir, GSMC director and Lisa Stewart, Foothills Family Ministries. We want to build a team of people that can support this small congregation and provide an awesome experience for these young people! Interested in Learning More?

Please contact Danean LeNoir at daneanGSMC@foothillsumc.org for more details. By mid-September, we will meet with prospective volunteers and develop a game plan.
