Volunteer Opportunities

At every baptism, the congregation is asked:

“Will you who witness these baptismal vows do all in your power to support these persons in their life in Christ?”

And the congregation responds, “We will.”

The wonderful programs for children at All Saints’ would not be possible if not for the incredible volunteers who arrive each week to teach, guide, worship and just be present with our children. Take a look at the list of volunteer opportunities below and see if there is a way you can help fulfill your part of the baptismal covenant by reaching out to help educate our youngest members of All Saints’.

We need you and you will enjoy the fellowship of other caring adults and the love of appreciative children.

To sign up for any of these programs, please contact Kathy Roberts at kroberts@allsaintsatlanta.org or 404-267-4272.

Sunday Formation Teacher for Three and Four Year-Olds

These teachers rotate through on a regular basis, with the frequency of teaching being determined by the number of volunteers. The Sunday Formation class takes place from 9:35 – 10:05 a.m.. Our curriculum is Living The Good News and includes a Bible story, songs, activities, a coloring page and often a take-home craft. All class materials and supplies are waiting in the nursery area each Sunday for teachers.

Little Saints Church Leader

Little Saints Church begins at 9:15 a.m. in the common area of the nursery. This is a time for our children to hear the appointed story for the day in a worship setting. They learn prayers and responses, songs and stories. Our leaders read the story from big picture books or use other aids. A simple song or two is sung.

Red Aprons and Red Ties

The All Saints’ Red Aprons/Red Ties volunteer in our rooms for babies through four year olds or serve as greeters and guides from 8:40 until 9:00 a.m. in the lobby of The Pritichett Children’s Center and again before the 11:15 a.m. service each Sunday throughout the school year. They have become a valuable part of our childcare and children’s formation efforts. Serving as a Red Apron/Red Tie is a great way to get to know other families at All Saints’.

Sunday Formation Teacher, Grades K–5

Spark Rotation Teacher K-3rd Grade
Teachers for this age group commit to one or more of our Rotation sections which are usually four weeks long. Their morning commitment is 10:10 – 11:10 a.m. Each week the teacher teaches the same lesson and activity, varying it a bit by making it more challenging for the second and third graders. Each week the teacher sees a different age group as the children rotate to a new class for that day. The lessons are planned, yet teachers are asked to contribute their special talents. This is a great way to get to know our elementary aged children and to pass on your life experiences and talents.

Connect Teacher 4th and 5th Grade
Teachers for this age group commit to one or half year where you will alternate Sundays with a team of four or five other adults. Their morning commitment is 10:10 – 11:10 a.m. Each week the teacher will take pre-teens on a journey through the Old Testament and into the New Testament, exploring the connections between several stories each week. Using quirky videos, hands-on activities, and Bible exploration, Connect helps preteens make the transition from kid to teen.

Greeter

Your morning commitment is from 8:40 – 9:40 a.m. most Sundays. Greeting young kids and their parents as they arrive for Children’s Church is an important ministry. You will make sure they get signed in, name tags on, and welcomed with a smile.

Gathering Time Leader

Our Gathering Time has turned into a wonderful welcoming time with games, songs, movement and special projects that begins at 8:40 a.m. During Gathering Time, we play games connected to the topic of the present rotation, check in on each other’s week and prepare for worship. It is always important to have several adults in attendance to help with needs that may arise during the service and to help with the movement from the Children’s Chapel over to the main church. Gathering Time Leaders also stay to assist with Children’s Church.
