Happy New Year!

Kingdom Kids Team News

Refreshments

Need a little pick-me-up before the children arrive? Maybe breakfast just didn't happen for you? Stop by the resource room for some coffee or snacks to fuel up! Take a minute to check the mail center, chat with fellow teachers, or just catch your breath. Leave a message on the whiteboard or drop a note in the ministry mailbox. These are all great ways to make connections with the rest of the team!

Team Leaders

The Kingdom Kids Team is BIG and DIVERSE! To better minister to you, our fantastic volunteers, we are happy to introduce TEAM LEADERS for our nursery and preschool departments! They will be coordinating schedules and overseeing needs specific to each department. More importantly, they are here to connect you as a team. Please be sure to reach out and introduce yourself as we welcome these lovely ladies into this new role!


Nursery Team Leaders - Tiffany Eby and Pam Heistand

Preschool Team Leaders - Lauren Crowe and Karen Stauffer

New Term

The current 6-month service term for nursery and preschool team members will end on February 21. Providing consistent and committed care for the children is so important, so if you are currently serving in nursery or preschool, we would love to see you continue to be a part of these teams!


Please join us in praying and believing that all classes will be fully staffed for the March - August term. Sign on for another term or give your team leader suggestions for some new team members.

CDs Needed

Patti is working on collecting old CDs in order to make some new classroom decorations with the kids. If you have any CDs that you no longer use, please bring them in and put them in the collection boxes in the resource room or at the Kingdom Kids Welcome Center by January 24.

Share Some Love!

We will be partnering with Blue Ridge Cable to share some love with local veterans and nursing home residents this Valentine's Day. During class time on the weekend of January 30 & 31, we will have supplies available to you in each classroom so that you can have the children make cards to share and spread the love of Jesus!

Resources for You

There are some new materials available for you to sign out in the teacher resource room. Come check out some skits, activities, coloring pages, and teaching strategies and take advantage of these tools to spark some new ideas for your time with the children!

Under the Weather?

This time of the year often brings sniffles and coughs for the kids - and for their teachers! It happens to everyone, so please use your best judgement about serving when you are not feeling well. If you think it is best not to serve, please do what you can to find a replacement. If you are unexpectedly unable to serve:


Call the ECC general mailbox phone (733-4071) and leave a message to let us know who will be taking your place or that you were not able to find a replacement.


Please do not contact Kingdom Kids leaders with last minute schedule changes. We will not see emails and often cannot check our phones during church service hours. The service coordinator will get messages that come in through the general inbox phone at the number above and we will be able to take care of getting coverage for the kiddos.
