Making Waves in the Kiddie Pool!

Posted in Cannonball, children’s at 10:28 PM by alexlozada

As we count down to MCC’s Sat 5:05p service, we’re using creative (and comic!) ways to invite people to serve in ways BEYOND their usual…

MCC Familiy Ministry team leader Gerri Baker gave more details about the thorough training for new recruits: “[they] are assigned to the specific staff person that will … [oversee] them in a teaching rotation, and then they are followed through with an interview, in-class training, and then implementation.  It takes an average of 10 hours per person to implement them into ministry because of the safety/security and simple pre-training that has to happen to be able to start effectively.” [KEY STAT] “…. about 10% of those who have indicated an interest are men.  We would love this to be more like 50% as so many of our little boys do not have positive male role models.”

She closes, “We are encouraged by the response…. we still have a long way to go!”

Our churchwide initiative – “Cannonball!” –  calls each MCC members to go “ALL IN” and “MAKE WAVES.”

So if you want to make waves in the kiddie pool 🙂  JUMP IN HERE
