Job Description

 

 

Saint Matthew’s is seeking a passionate, collaborative, and creative part-time Children’s Program Coordinator. Our next children’s coordinator will help children (preschool - fifth grade) know how deeply they are loved by God by developing a robust program that grows their faith.  We envision this happening through:

Sunday School (which we affectionately call Faith Factory): Build a volunteer team that creates memorable Christian education experiences of God’s love, support, and presence that kids do not want to miss!

Vacation Bible School: Implement a high-impact, week long Vacation Bible School Program that is geared to attracting the community and stands out as one of the best weeks of a child’s summer!

Christmas Pageant: Coordinate a vibrant Christmas Eve Pageant that captures the Christmas Spirit as only kids can do!

Other: Envision and develop other opportunities to lead our children into a deeper experience of the delight God takes in them and the delight they can take in being part of our church family and the larger community. This will include leading children’s outreach opportunities as well as activities at regular parish events such as Algonkian Park Picnic, Oktoberfest, St. Matthew’s Day, Easter Sunday Egg Hunts, and Christmas Sing-Along. It will also include creative, new events driven by the vision and enthusiasm of you and your team.  

 

This hourly position is part-time - approximately 10-19 hours per week, based on upcoming events. Starting pay is $20/hour. Sunday mornings are required, but other hours are flexible. Staff meetings are held on Tuesday mornings, and ideally your schedule would allow you to attend at least once per month.
