First UMC of Jupiter-Tequesta

Volunteer

Our volunteers are undoubtedly the backbone and the spark that makes the week so amazing!

Perks of being a volunteer: building relationships with over 155 kids and 70+ volunteers, watching the Spirit move through the kid's lives in big ways, discounted registration fee for your own children, VBS Leader shirt, great opportunity for tons of community service hours, and free childcare for any of your own children that are under 3 years old. If you need childcare, please indicate that below in order to help us prepare for our youngest VBS members.

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO KNOW AS A VOLUNTEER:
1. Please check your emails regularly as announcements will be sent out with any meeting dates, important news and changes as they happen. It is important that we are all on the same page. We are a TEAM....WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST!

2. If your children are attending VBS, please fill out a registration form for each child (excluding our nursery crew).

3. Once you sign in below you will see a few options that may be confusing. "Site Leader" is the Center Leader (i.e. science, crafts, music, games, snack or drama) and Crew Leader is the group leaders for the kids. If you want to assist a group leader click the 2 boxes "assisting in the classroom" and the age group or if you would like to assist but not lead a center, click "assisting in the classroom" and then click which center you would like to help. Also, please note that although more age options are included below, we only offer VBS to completed 5th graders.

4. Please keep in mind that by completing the registration form, you are committing to the following responsibilities. If you are a parent filling out the form for your youth, PLEASE read through this information with your child. We take their commitment very seriously.

Volunteer Commitments:
Realizing that being an adult and/or youth volunteer for VBS is an honor and a privileged place of service for the Lord, I commit the following:

My Purpose
The purpose of the United Methodist Church of Jupiter-Tequesta is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the TRANSFORMATION of the world.

My Time
I will attend all general VBS meetings and any department training sessions (dates will be announced).

I will prepare for my VBS responsibilities and arrive Monday through Friday, June 8th – 12th , at 8:40 am (sharp) to 12:15 pm.

My Energy
I will exhibit responsibility, dependability and integrity. I understand VBS to be a children’s program. My leadership will be for the children. Their safety and enjoyment will be my primary focus.

My Accountability
I understand that if my leadership comes into question I will be spoken to and if continued concern occurs, I may be asked to leave my position.

PLEASE NOTE:
All volunteers MUST ATTEND one of the scheduled mandatory meetings prior to serving at VBS. Dates and times will be announced soon. Please make plans to join us for worship on Sunday, June 27th for a special time of prayer for all of our volunteers during the worship service.

Safety will be TOP PRIORITY! We are asking all volunteers and children to wear a mask while on the church property. We will also have hand sanitizing stations throughout the church.
