SPARK is essentially Sunday School, but it doesn’t meet just on Sundays anymore.  The acronym SPARK has been adopted for both Sunday SPARK and Tuesday SPARK which are alike in content. 

The acronymn means:  Scripture, Prayer And Relationship for Kids

Caregiver Team of Volunteers

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  The strength of our program lies in the hands of the AAA Adults and teens who work with our children.  AAA means those who are Authentic, Available and Affirming.  It is through these AAA servants that our children grow.  Faith is caught more than it is taught.   
 
OUR GOAL is ALWAYS is to HAVE MORE PEOPLE HELPING
       -- and EVERYONE carrying a little less of the load.  
   > WE NEED MANY TO SAY YES.  
   > WE NEED YOU to be a part of the team.  To make a difference in the lives of our children.  
   > Together we will SPARK the FAITH of our KIDS!
 
YOU ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED and INVITED TO FIND A WAY TO VOLUNTEER.
It takes over 75 people to make SPARK happen each per week.  
Please committ to at least three hours SOMETIME this YEAR.
 
CHOOSE how you will volunteer?  
Indicate below:
 
Preschool / KIndergarten Leadership Team
         Seeking AT LEAST two per room // each week.  If we have more, it makes it easier to rotate your schedules.  
         Lesson plans are provided and sent by email to you ahead of time.  Supplies are gathered by someone else.
       
1st - 4th Grade Shepherd
         Shepherds are the steady presence for the children.  
         Shepherds are NOT required to teach, but to assist the teacher.
         Each unit has three weeks & three lessons -- ART, CREATIVE STORYTELLING, COOKING
         Children are divided into groups.  Each group has a shepherd(s). 
         Two (2) shepherds per group.  Having two takes care of finding subs in absence.
         
1st - 4th Grade Leaders
        Leaders guide the conversation for the story/theme. 
        Lesson plans are provided.  Supplies are gathered by someone else. 
        Each unit is three weeks long.  Leaders commit to three weeks at a time.  
        For each unit we need an ART leader, a CREATIVE STORYTELLING leader, a COOKING leader.
        Each leader guides a small group through the same lesson for three weeks with a different group of children.  
 
Substitutes
        There are always times (and sometimes last minute) that subs are needed.  
        Volunteering here as a substitute means that your name and contact information will be on the sub list.
        NOTE:  For Preschool-Kindergarten groups all caregivers are listed on the sub list.   
        Please volunteer to SUB if you are willing to be on call and sometimes at the last minute. 
        Please be prepared to say YES when called. 
 
Supply TEAM
        New supplies are needed at the beginning of each unit.
        The supply team gathers supplies from FAITH'S supply closets.

        These teams are activated the week before each new unit.  There are eight units per year.
