GraceKids Volunteers Needed

Summer is here and we are in need of some helpers to fill in on Sundays at GraceKids.  Typically volunteers will serve one month on and two months off during the school year....but due to the summer break (vacationing, summer camps and all) it is hard to schedule consistent leaders.

Therefore,  I am in need of a few volunteers to help police our large group and to help lead small group activities.  It's a very simple task and it's a great way to get involve!!!  Not to mention, you'll be blessed with the interaction you will have with our smallest God loving people---our GraceKids!

Below are dates that we need to fill.  We need AT LEAST FOUR HELPERS for every Sunday.  If you are interested, please let me know asap.  ***6th-12th graders are welcome to sign up and help!!!
