The Staff-Parish Relations Committee has decided to hire an interim or several interims to keep our program for children and youth going.
As the CYF Director position remains unfilled, the Staff-Parish Relations Committee is offering a monthly stipend for each of the four parts of our current CYF program. A person could apply for one or all four of the interim positions. We are hoping to get people from the congregation to fill these positions so that the relationships built can continue after the new person is hired. However, we would also consider people outside the church. The positions would be for up to 3 months starting at the beginning of January. Below are the details.
- Sunday School Coordinator, $200 per month: We have a strong curriculum and several people who work regularly with the children. The coordinator would choose which of the options to use each Sunday and gather any supplies needed. They would also be sure volunteers are scheduled for the two classes.
- Young Listeners Program, $125 per month: This is the option for children to leave the service after the children’s sermon. This person would recruit one other adult for each Sunday and go out with the children. The program is flexible but a possible plan is to talk some about the scripture, then interview the other adult about their life and their spiritual path, and close with joys and concerns. The children would usually draw or doodle while all of this was going on.
- Supper Church Coordinator, $75 per month: Supper Church is held once each month on a Monday night. The coordinator would plan an activity and recruit people to help with the activity and others to bring dinner. The coordinator would also work with Pastor Ann to plan the short service and be sure there is publicity about the event.
If you are interested in one or more of these positions, please contact Ann Joyce, Staff-Parish Relations Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.276.8090.
