For Volunteers

Message from Chairperson

Dear Children's Ministry volunteers,

Prayer
The practice and discipline of Prayer and the teaching of how to Pray is an important part of the Children's Ministry.

Jesus himself showed us the importance of prayer by regularly setting time aside to speak to and listen to God. He spoke to God at every instance - He prayed without ceasing - His last words were a prayer.

Community
Related to prayer is community. Much of Jesus' prayers were for others. We need to do the same. We need to pray specifically for our children as well as for each other.

Please pray regularly and specifically for your children during and outside CM. For some children, your prayers may be the only ones for them for that week. We need to know each other beyond the 'hi' and 'goodbye' in the hallways. We need to care for one another in real and tangible ways.

Prayer is caring. A strong focus for us will be to strengthen the CM community through praying and caring.

Parents
A most important part of a child's life is his/her parents. If we are to know a child, we need to speak to the parents. Many teachers who do call parents, have mentioned that speaking to the parents have changed their view of the child and hence their relationship to the child significantly.

Back to Basics
Finally, CM must continue to be Bible-based. I encourage all CM volunteers to continue to find ways to immerse yourselves in the Word of God. Everything we do in CM must be centered on Christ, and hence the Word of God.

Pray. Continue to spend time reading the Bible and praying regularly. Worship when you pray. Pray for yourself, pray for others.

Love and care. Take time and be inconvenienced by your love for others - Go the extra mile, be kind whenever you can, show others you care. Do this all by depending on Him. This is what Christ did for us; He did it to the point of the cross.

Learn. Continue to learn ways to teach and communicate effectively to children. New technologies and methods that help enhance the learning experience for the child are being taught to today's teachers. We should be no different.

The Great Commission. Last but not least, every time you come to CM to serve -- remember that Jesus has commanded us to make disciples out of these children, not just converts. Some of our children might not be Christians yet. To the best of your ability, find opportunities to witness to your small group and every child. And for those who already love Jesus, we must continue to nurture them so that Jesus takes first place in their lives. Pray that they would be the ones to go unto the nations when the Lord calls.
