How to get involved? If you are interested in helping in our ministry you can contact Zach Dyrda. All volunteers need to be certified in Keeping God’s People Safe and have a background check. All volunteers are guided and given lesson plans for each class. There are two rotating positions for the first grade group, the teachers and assistants. Teachers are asked to lead and guide the children through the lesson plan. The assistants are responsible for keeping the children focused and helping the teacher out.
