Volunteer for Extended Session

SIGN UP to Volunteer

We are excited to announce the reopening of Extended Session for preschoolers ages 1-4 years old! (Our baby room will be delayed for a few additional weeks.) Our Extended Session Ministry relies on volunteers like YOU!

If you are a preschool parent, consider signing up for 2 Sundays a quarter. If you do not have preschoolers, we encourage you to sign up for 1 Sunday a quarter. This way of serving spreads the responsibility among preschool parents and other church members which is directly in line with our Providence Will Strategic Plan that says to “Make Disciples” we should share this responsibility so that our families with young children have opportunities for spiritual growth. Also, it is a wonderful way for our youngest at Providence to get to know and learn from church members whom they may not otherwise see or meet and vice versa.

Extended Session Reservation for June 13

Sunday, June 13
Check-In: Fellowship Hall

We are excited to reopen Extended Session for preschoolers ages 1-4 years old! (Our baby room will be delayed for a few additional weeks.) Currently, there are two extended session classes: one class for 1 and 2 year olds and the other class for 3 and 4 year olds. They will both be located on the green hall of the preschool building (Rooms 1414 and 1420).

Families need to reserve a spot for their preschoolers each week and each class is capped at 10 children for now. The sign up link to make a reservation will be in the Diaspora on Mondays at 5:00pm or you can sign up on this page. On Sunday mornings, enter through the Rotunda and then come to the Fellowship Hall for Check-In.

Vacation Bible School Volunteers

June 21-25
SIGN UP to Volunteer

We still need 3-4 more adult volunteers and 5-6 more student volunteers!

Vacation Bible School 2021 will look a little different this year as we make changes to follow covid safety guidelines, but it will still be a wonderful experience for children and volunteers! This year we will be spending the week in Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus.

If you’ve helped in our VBS before, you know we cannot do it without volunteers, MANY volunteers. Consider spending time with us the week of June 21-25. If you have questions about safety precautions or how you can help, CONTACT our Children’s Ministry. Otherwise, go to the Volunteer FORM and tell us how you’d like to help.
