Preschool/Children’s Ministry Preschool Ministry Through partnership with parents, we strive to create the first building blocks of a strong Bible-driven foundation for our children. Preschoolers love to learn and play, which is why each classroom provides interactive learning experiences with the Bible in a colorful and engaging atmosphere. Nursery classes coincide with all of our regular weekend and mid-week adult services. Children’s Ministry Quail Kids is for children in grades 1-5. We work to continue to build upon the foundation started during preschool. We do this by teaching our kids about God’s grace and forgiveness of sins; teach Bible skills our kids will use for the rest of their lives and ways to serve others as obedient followers of Christ. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children. These five years are all about transition and growing and we want to foster that through our various ministry activities. Each summer, we offer a week of Vacation Bible School as well as various camp options for our children. Contacts: Children’s Pastor, Mark Jones, [email protected]

Positions: 1. Sunday Morning Teachers: We lead small group Bible studies by building relationships with the children in our classes. The relationships we build transfer to better Bible teaching and modeling a relationship with Jesus. Since this is our commitment, we need adults who are willing to love kids, teach the Bible and often be a good listener ready to offer affirmation and support as well as challenge. Teachers and co-teachers are needed at 8:15, 9:30 and 10:45 am. 2. Wednesday Night Teachers: Our Wednesday nights are very interactive as kids rotate as classes from room to room. They are learning Bible skills and missions that are preparing them for life. Teachers prepare 20-30 minutes of material and simply repeat it for the next classes. Easier preparation and short time periods help everyone on Wednesday nights. Coaches and teachers are needed. 3. Vacation Bible School: Our goal is to reach 1000 in Vacation Bible School. Small group classes are still the goal so teachers have more opportunities to build relationships and share God’s plan of salvation. Teachers are needed in each age group to lead the Bible study as well as music, crafts, missions and volunteers for security, parking and cookies.
4. Greeters: Welcoming families each Sunday morning is the first contact we have to share our love for families and kids. We need adults willing to help guests find their classroom and feel at home in QSBC. 5. G-Force: First and Second graders worship every Sunday morning at 11:00 in G-Force. This time combines large group with small groups to lead the kids in Worship and Bible study. We need teachers to serve on a 6-week rotation. G-Force is a great opportunity for parents of first and second graders to be a part of their child’s Sunday morning activities. 6. New Christian’s Class: We offer “I’m a Christian Now” for Kids several times a year. This class is for new Christians, but also for any child questioning what it means to be a Christian. We meet on Sunday mornings at 11:00am, for four Sundays. Each class is limited to approximately 10 students. Teachers are needed to lead.
