A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A LIFEPARK VOLUNTEER

  • Arrive in your area – 15 minutes prior to service start time (KP123 or KP45)
  • Greet kids as they arrive
  • Interact with them (ask about their week; last week’s message; etc)
  • Use ‘ice breaking’ resources provided in your supply bin
  • Encourage kids through interaction
  • Kids and leaders will gather in the KP123 room
  • Sit with your small group and supervise them
  • Don’t hesitate to manage behavior

Good ways to encourage appropriate behavior:

  • Eye Contact
  • Tap on shoulder
  • Position yourself next to or behind the child
  • Move the child to another spot

Participate in Worship – SING! DANCE! CLAP!

  • Do the motions (have fun worshipping God!)
  • Sing out! The words are on the screen!
  • Look at the kids while you worship and encourage their participation
  • Show kids how to praise God – they will follow your example.
  • Remind kids to stand

Participate in the Lesson

  • Model active listening
  • Engage with the teacher; encourage the kids to do the same
  • Following Large Group time, return your group to your area
  • Be familiar with the small group material beforehand (emailed each week for your review)
  • You will lead the kids into a deeper understanding of the lesson taught in Large Group
  • Small Groups are where ‘discipleship’ begins; use your time to teach, but also use it to get to know your kids and allow them to know each other
  • Praise and encourage the children for interacting/participating
  • Pray with and for your kids
  • Stay with your group until all have been picked up by parents/guardians
  • Let KidsPark staff know of any significant issues
