  • Dear Parents,

    Your child wishes to apply to serve with Empowered Kids Children’s Ministry at Water of Life Community Church as a junior volunteer. Please review the following information with your child which outlines the expectation of helping in one of our classrooms.

    As a parent, your approval and support is very important to the success and experience your child has while serving. As a part of the Empowered Kids team, they will learn about faithfulness, leadership, teaching and serving others.

    Your child is making a commitment that should not be taken lightly. Just as we would expect an adult to fulfill the commitment they make, we expect youth to keep their commitment as well. However, your youth can only be as committed as you help them to be. When selecting an area to serve please refer to the following guidelines:

    Department/Classroom/Minimum Age to Serve

    *Nursery - Infants - 16 years old

    *Nursery - 1's & 2's - 12 years old

    *Preschool - 3's, 4's, 5's - 12 years old

    *Elementary - 1st/2nd grade - 12 years old

    *Elementary - 3rd/4th grade - 15 years old (or in 9th grade or higher)

    *Special Needs (EK2) - Building A - 12 years old

    If your child is under the minimum age requirement, please talk to a ministry staff member about how you as a parent can serve together with your child.

    All volunteers should have been consistently attending Water of Life Community Church for at least 6 months prior to serving in the classroom.

    6. Remain in good standing with your class Team Leader. Your Team Leader has the authority & final say as to whether a youth will be permitted to help during their class.

    7. Be responsible and call your Team Leader or Dept. Coordinator if an emergency comes up and you aren’t able to serve at your scheduled service. If you don’t show up or call 3 times in a row, you will no longer be able to serve in Empowered Kids.
