We expect you to have as much fun as the kids do! Come and assist one of our Cove small group leaders in the classroom with activities, snacks and crafts.

These are volunteers who serve once or twice a quarter assisting small group leaders. No experience or teaching required.


Great with people? Computers? These volunteers keep our check-in running smoothly along with welcoming our families and first time guests.
