Volunteer Opportunities with Youth at Christ the King
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
A children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered September through May at most of our Sunday 9:30 a.m. Masses. Leaders are needed to serve with a team on a rotating basis to read the Word of God with young children and lead an age-appropriate homiletic reflection, often using mediums of art, music, and story-telling. Training and all materials are provided.
WEDNESDAY FAITH FORMATION CLASSES
During the school year (September-May), students aged 1-5th grade meet weekly on Wednesday evenings from 630-730pm. Classes are led by trained catechists (volunteer teachers), and children are taught in age-appropriate small community groups. Our lessons are rooted in tenants of the faith, social justice, the Sunday liturgy and is developmental in nature. All materials and lesson plans are provided.
IGNITE SMALL GROUP LEADER
During the school year, typically on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month, teens ranging from 6-12th grade join together for our teen formation program called Ignite from 6:30-8pm. The Ignite program offers a small Christian community type setting for middle school and high school students. All students grade 6-12 will start the evening together as a large group with games, music, and an introduction to the night’s topic. From there students will split off into small groups by grade, where an adult leader will help facilitate discussion. All discussion questions and training are provided.
YOUTH MINISTRY SOCIAL EVENT CHAPERONE
Once a month, our youth ministry program offers a social event for teens (grades 6-12). Activities vary from corn mazes, snow tubing, water parks, and more. Whether the event is offsite or at our CTK campus, adult volunteers/chaperones are needed. Occasionally, we are also in need of adult volunteers to help with driving to and from locations.
All volunteers working with kids and youth will need to complete Virtus training and a background check. Contact Kelley Deshler to complete this requirement.
